Mini Garden Bouquet
This is a sheet from http://www.craftsuprint.co.uk/ and is a variation of the lovely Giant Easel Tableau kits – in that its a mini version!
The sheet is called Garden Bouquet Mini Tableau 3d Kit by Valerie Dawes and the item number should you wish to look this sheet up is 245744
The sheet consists of the easel base, the back panel and 2 pop up panels and 4 sentiment tabs
I stuck the whole sheet direct to white card stock using the Crafters Companion Stick and Spray – the cut out all elements
In the base of the easel are printed cut lines – these were cut using a craft knife – and the pop up panels were simply popping into them and secured underneath the base.
For such a pretty and somewhat complicated looking card there is little work involved – I admit that the pop up panels aren’t that easy to cut out but if you take the time its well worth it in the end....
With a choice of the 4 sentiment tabs I chose the Happy Birthday as this really is a lovely card to send to ladies of any age for their birthday
I used a sheet of glossy card to create a base cover for the easel - I decided to use my Alcohol inks to create this lovely pink and gold mottled pattern - the thing with Alcohol inks is you never get the same design twice!!!
Im so sorry this was such a short explanation – but that was what made is so nice – quick and easy but beautiful!
The card when finished measures small enough to fit into an A5 envelope
Thank you as always for stopping by – see you next time I hope
Bye folks.... x ….......
