Ombre Easel Fun Fold Cards
In this class I’m going to sharing several crafting techniques to create this ombre background easel fun fold card. It uses the Stampin’ Up Summer Shadows Dies that are available free during Sale-a-bration. The dies also coordinate with the Shaded Summer stamp set that is in the Annual Catalog. I didn’t have the stamp set, and it turns out these dies are pretty amazing all on their own. They don’t need to be paired with the stamp set.
The words are from the In Your Words Sale-a-bration host set.
Techniques in this class include:
- Ombre background technique
- Blending Brushes
- Heat Embossing
- Splatter Effect
- Easel Card Fun Folds
- Working with Adhesive Strips
This card is a part of my series on Sale-a-bration. Click here for more ideas. This ombre card was inspired by Jacque Williams from New Zealand. I have a free pdf below with measurements, a complete supply list. All supplies are available in my online store.
I’ll share a tutorial for the Z-Fold card I shared on the video here on my blog on Sunday.
REVISED TO INCLUDE CARD #2
The original pdf didn’t have card #2 because I made it on the video. I’ve updated the pdf to include both cards.
Free printable pdf including project photos, measurements and a full supply list with clickable links to purchase.
Pin this to your favorite Pinterest board to save this idea.
After masking the background, the mask was too pretty to throw away so I had some fun on the video and made a 2nd card with the left overs on the fly.
My original card was a traditional fold. I didn’t have the Shaded Summer Stamp Set so I subbed the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set for the background. I used the Limited Edition Saleabration host set called In Your Words for the words.
After I made the original card, I wanted to step it up with a fun fold so I created the easel card using the same techniques.
After I made the first card there was this beautiful rainbow ombre mask that was too pretty to throw away so I did some on the fly stamping in the class to make Card #2. What do you think?
