Let's get crafting!
Step 1: Cut white cardstock into one 11 x 4 1/2", one 10 x 4, and one 9 x 3 1/2" pieces, fold each in half and place the Large Eyelet Diamond die on the largest piece leaving about 3/4" of the die off the top so that it does not cut fold. Cut the other two pieces of card with the next two sized dies.
Step 1A: Fold one half of each in half.
Step 2: Using white card die cut the diamonds again as full diamonds this time. Also die cut using the Diamond Basics die set papers from the paper pad and adhere to the white card die cuts.
Step 2A: Die cut the Diamond Basics dies paper from the paper pad. And adhere to the base of each of the folded diamond card bases.
Step 3: Adhere the three folded card bases to each other to for the teiple easel card. Start with the largest and adhere the middle sized card base to the centre of the largest card base. Repeat with the smallest card base adhering it to the middle one.
Step 4: Stamp a sentiment onto one of the diamond fronts using Deep Purple ink.
Step 5: Adhere each front (the three diamond pieces we cut first) to the folded section of each diamond as shown here.
Top Tip: Place glue onto the folded section of the card and not onto the triangle you are adhering to the card.
Step 5A: The large section and the middle section will now stand open when placing the point of the diamond bottom against the fold of the next section and the last little section will stand open when decorated with florals which are used as a stopper! (See finished photo).
Step 6: Stamp several sets of small, medium and large sized Oakberry Lane Blossoms and some tiny Floral Fashionista Blossoms using Deep Purple, Rose Madder and Magenta Hue inks and sponge with Deep Purple, Pink Peony and Magenta Hue. Also stamp the Leafy Accents using Fern Green and sponge with Leaf Green and some of the Deep Purple and Rose Madder.
Diecut the flowers and leaves using coordinating dies and shape using the 3D Molds and the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
Step 7: Glue together 3 layers for each flower. 2 of the same size for the base and then 1 smaller size for each of the Oakberry Lane Blossoms, 2 layers for each of the Floral Fashionista Blossoms. Fill the Tiny Florals with Minnie Pearl Prills and use the ivory small Pearl stamen for each Oakberry Blossom.
