Floral Reflection Collection Easel Cards with Jen Kotas

Hello! I’m Jen Kotas from whostolemyglitter.com and I’m happy to be here today to share three Floral Reflection Collection easel cards. Easel cards are simple to make and the size of the dies and glimmer plate meant not much else would be needed.

To create the easel card base, cut a piece of cardstock 4 ¼” x 11”. Score at 2 ¾” and again at 5” then fold on score lines. Cut the 4 ¼” x 5 ½” embossed cardstock in half at 2 ¾”. Adhere the pieces above and below the 2 ¾” score line on the card base. Anything you wish to pop up when open can only be adhered to the bottom panel. To keep the card open, adhere three pieces of cardstock together and adhere them inside of the card.

Make a Wish Easel Card

The first of the  Floral Reflection Collection easel cards  is a lovely black background featuring floral embossing and more flowering patterns.

  • Adhere the assembled piece from step 4 to the bottom half of the card base only.
  • Stamp “Happy Birthday” from the Floral Reflections Sentiments Clear Stamp Set on a strip of white cardstock with black ink. Adhere two slightly smaller cardstock strips behind the sentiment. Place the strip inside the card.
  • Heat emboss “Make a Wish” from the Floral Reflections Sentiments Clear Stamp Set on a strip of Black Cardstock with embossing ink and white embossing powder. Die cut with the circle die from the Floral Reflection Etched Dies and place on the card with a thin foam square.

You Make Me Smile Easel Card

The second card features simple hearts and a beautiful flower bouquet to add extra detail.

With Love Easel Card

My final card in the trio of Floral Reflection Collection easel cards is this glimmer floral lay against an elegant tile background.

  • Emboss a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of Brushed White Cardstock with the Tile Reflection 3D Embossing Folder. Follow the directions at the top for placing on the card.
  • Hot foil the Glimmering Just For You Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set with Satin Pewter Hot Foil Roll included in the Satin Metallics Variety Pack.
  • Color the image then die-cut it. Die cut two more times from plain white cardstock. Adhere together to make the cardstock sturdier when sticking up.
