This was my first try making a triangular easel card. I found it to be fairly easy and a lot of fun. Since fun fold cards are some of my favorite, I like to explore different designs that I come across.
At first glance, this card may look complicated but it really isn’t. It uses a regular card base and you just add one additional score line. A couple small pieces of cardstock comprise the mechanism that makes the rectangle seem to float. In fact, some people call this a floating card.
The Petal Park stamp set and coordinating punch are easy to use and help make this card happy and fun. I do have a tip regarding the large leaf stamps in this set. Both of the stamps have a very narrow center section and can be easily pulled out of shape. Caution is required when apply and removing the stamps from a clear block. Inadvertently stretching a stamp will cause it to not line up with the matching leaf stamp.
Because I’m a visual learner, I always try to have a YouTube tutorial to walk you through all the steps of how to make this card. You can click on the link here to watch the tutorial. Below, you will find all the dimensions as well as the products that I used.
Even if you have never made a fun fold card, I’m hoping that my card inspires you to give this one a try. If you make one, let me know if you thought it was straightforward and which colors you chose. If you are interested in seeing more fun fold cards, then you can check out others on my blog. Here is a link to one that I made recently,
