I’m so sorry, I got kicked off the internet part way through the class and had to start a new video. I combined both videos:

Have you tried this design? I love to see your creations! Be sure to share them on  #shareyourcrafts post every Saturday on my Facebook Page


These cards are just as pretty in the dark as they are in light. I used Battery Operated Tea Lights, I have links below to a few different options for Tea Lights on Amazon. Regular, timers and even color changing!
 

The Watercolor World example I demonstrated on the class video is a landscape style easel card. I have the dimensions listed on the printable pdf above. I’ll share other orientations like portrait and square in the upcoming tutorials for the series.

  
This is the top down view of the card opened fully. I am going to show a trick on the video on how to hide the vellum backing so it doesn’t show. This was my original and I didn’t think to hide the backing until I’d already assembled it. 

 
This is what the card looks like when it’s folded. Folded card size is standard 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and will lay flat to fit in a regular Medium sized envelope. However if you are gifting the Tea Light with the card I’d recommend a bubble wrap envelope.


Yesterday I shared a tutorial for you to make these gorgeous Watercolor World easel cards.

    Amazing tutorial and video…your energy is contagious! I love easel cards, but these are so over the top beautiful. Shared the video & post with my stamping sister Mary.
    My fave of all the choices(do I have to choose?) is the By the bay with the light house. Dont have that paper yet but will try the landscape design with another product.

  11. Hi! Tami, I am watching this video late as I have just got it in my in box today, but I have been wanting to make this illuminated Easel card but didn’t know how to make it. So happy I saw this video as I want to make the Grassy Grove one, as I have that bundle. Your instructions are so easy to follow and all your cards are beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing. I can’t wait to make these.
