Chalkboard Easel card created with Stampin' Up! products

"Cheerfulness is what greases the axles of the world. Don't go through life creaking." - H.W. Byles

This is a quote that reminds us all that we always need happiness in our lives.  This card is one that is not your "traditional" card and can be given to a loved one for their retirement, graduation, or just because.






Supplies:


Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog




Measurements:

  • Crumb Cake card stock - 4 1/4 in x 11 in scored at 5 1/2 in.
  • Basic Black card stock - 3 1/2 in x 3 3/4 in
  • Scraps as listed above for Banner Punch (or any coordinating colors of your choice)
  • White Baker's Twine - 6-7 in.

Instructions:

  1. Center the 5th largest Square Framelit on the folded 4 1/4 x 11 piece of card stock about 1 1/4 in from the bottom to create the "legs" for the card base and run it through the Big Shot.
  2. Ink the Hardwood Stamp with Crumb Cake Ink and stamp both front and back of the card base.  Sponge all edges with Early Espresso ink.
  3. Stamp the "do more..." stamp in the piece of Basic Black card stock with Whisper White craft ink.  Pierce holes or use the 1/8 in. hand held punch in the card and add to the front of the card with two silver mini brads.
  4. Punch the scraps of colored card stock with the Banner Punch and use the 1/8 in. to add holes for the banner. String together with White Baker's Twine (about 6-7 inches).  Wrap around the two mini brads and trim as needed.
  5. Stamp the hearts on one or two of the banners.
  6. Pop in an envelope (or make your own) and share with a loved one or friend!

Remember, you do not have to be creative to create - just copy this project!  Happy stamping :)
