Celebrate Summer with a Center Fold Easel Card!

Gosh, I love fun fold cards...especially the ones as simply fabulous as this one. I used supplies from July 2023 Paper Pumpkin to create it.

The fun comes when you open the card, though.

Besides supplies from the kit, all I used to create this card is the Crumb Cake cardstock card base and the Natural 1/4" Wavy Trim, shown below.

For the card base, I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, but I doctored it up a bit. I followed the cutting and scoring instructions as shown below.

I folded the card on the longer of the two score lines. For the layers on the card, I cut apart one of the envelopes from the Paper Pumpkin kit. I first cut a piece that is 5" x 4" to layer on the inside of the card before gluing down the two 7/8" strips I cut on the sides of the card. This leaves the center as the part of the card that opens. Folding that center section on the shorter score line gives that center section some room to rest on the sentiment when it's open.

I next cut two pieces of the envelope 5/8" x 4" to layer on the border strips. The two stripey pieces on the those border strips are also cut from the envelope - it's flap. Those two tiny pieces measure 5/8" x approximately 1 1/4".

The rest - the sea-scape, critters, sign, and sentiment banner are all pieces from the Kit, but can't you just imagine all the possibilities with different products? There are countless options for this Center Easel Card, and I'd love for you to give it a try! Watch the video tutorial here:
