I’m back today with another fun FUN-FOLD card featuring my Stamp Set of the week, Delicate Dahlias.

Now it doesn’t look like much of a Fun-Fold in the above picture, does it?  But look what happens when you open it into its Easel form.

Is it still not real clear what is going on?  How about from this angle?

Now is it starting to make a little more sense why I called it an Easel card?  If you would like to give making one of these a try, I have a Free Tutorial available for you with all the dimensions and directions. 

To make my Dahlias today, rather than stamping them or stamping and coloring them, I used the gorgeous Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper to create my flowers.  I simply stamped the outline image stamp on some various scraps of paper from Expressions in Ink and then fussy cut them.

For the card base I used another design from this beautiful paper and the Easel “tent” was covered with the gold stripe pattern from the same paper package. 

The flowers and leaves are adhered to the lower part of the Easel “Tent” with either liquid glue or dimensionals.  The only thing to be careful of is that you attach the flowers to the lower part of the “tent” only – otherwise your tent won’t open, and you will be camping under the stars! 

Here is a little look at the inside of the “tent”.

I stamped one more, small Dahlia on another scrap of Expressions in Ink DSP, fussy cut it and adhered it to the top corner of the inside basic white mat.

The sentiment labels (or stake in the ground that holds your tent in place) were die cut from two dies from the Ornate Frames Dies.  The sentiment is from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the mat is from another scrap of Expressions in Ink and matches the paper on the card base.

What do you think of this card?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Don’t forget to check out the tutorial and if you have questions, I’m here to help.
