Easel Card and Template {Bo Bunny Boardwalk}


Good morning friends! I have a fun easel style card to share with you today using BoBunny's beautiful Boardwalk collection.  The last two cards I made up using this lovely collection got used up quickly by my family (they are just so perfect for a card for either man or woman!).


For this card I used an 11" x 4.5" piece of BoBunny's Double Dot Cardstock (in Khaki), and did a little cutting and scoring (see measurements below).  It was a quick easy fold job....then the fun part, decorating it!   I used cut pieces of board from the 6x6 paper pad, adding some metal brads on the end of each board for an accent.  I cut out a Seahorse from one of the patterned papers and added some crackle varnish to it to give it a little shine and texture.  Then I cut out some more of the cute beach/nautical accents in this collection (anchor, starfish, shells) and added with some foam pop dot adhesives and finished with a few BoBunny jewel accents.


Here are the basic measurements I used to make my card.  You want to start with a 11" x 4.5" piece of paper.  You'll then make a cut 1" in from the left side starting at the 4.5" mark to the 10" mark.  Then simply score at the 4.5" mark, the 9" mark and the 10" mark.  Fold and then move on to the fun part, decorating it!


I had some fun using BoBunny's awesome new Die's!  Here I used the Elegant Border die for the bottom edge of my card design.

Bo Bunny Products used:
Patterned Paper: Boardwalk/Bliss, Drift, Seaside, Sandcastle
6x6 Paper Pad: Boardwalk
Cardstock: Double Dot/Khaki
Jewels: Emerald
Dies: Elegant Border

I hope you enjoyed checking out my easel style card today and hope you give it a try, I think you'll have as much fun making it as I did! :)

LOVE this card!!! This is such a lovely use of a sidestep card base. Every element has a special place in which to be featured. Love how you added brads to look like nails. Thanks for the base diagram...easy to follow. Beautiful card!

Thanks so much for sharing your template for the easel card. I just may give it a try this weekend. Of course I could never do it justice. You are a master at layering beautiful elements. This is such a gorgeous card. I love the board background from the Boardwalk collection. And your use of different fibers give it such texture. Beautiful!!! -- Mary Elizabeth
