This Easel Book Card looks intimidating, but I promise it’s easier than it looks … and you will love the results! I learned this fold from demonstrator Barb Tripps at one of our Vancouver Island Demos’ meetings, which are now held virtually!

To make this card, you will need four pieces of cardstock and five pieces of Designer Series Paper. I’m using the Whale of a Time DSP for my card. The photo above gives you a good visual of how this card will be laid out, which might help you choose your papers, and figure out which cardstock colours you want to use with which papers. The measurements are as follows:

A:
Cardstock – 5.5 x 8.5
DSP: 5.25 x 1-7/8 (2 pcs)

B:
Cardstock: 4-5/8 x 3-3/8”
DSP: 4-3/8 x 3-1/8”

C:
Cardstock: 5-1/8 x 3-7/8″
DSP: 4-7/8 x 3-5/8”

D:
Cardstock: 5-1/8 x 7/8″
DSP: 4-7/8 x 5/8″

Once you have cut all your pieces, score your “A” piece (cardbase) at 4.25″, and then fold back one side of your cardbase to that centre fold line, as shown. Crease well with your bone folder.

Attach your two “A” DSP pieces to the cardbase.

Attach your “D” DSP piece to your “D” cardstock.

Set “A” and “D” aside. The two pieces of cardstock and DSP you have left are going to create your book. Start by folding each of them in half, and creasing well with your bone folder.

Apply a piece of Tear and Tape adhesive to the wrong side of your DSP, along the centre score line.

Attach each piece of DSP to its corresponding cardstock, only along that centre score line.

Use a pencil to curl the ‘pages’ of the DSP.

Apply three glue dots on the wrong side of your DSP to attach to your cardstock. (Glue dots don’t show up well on camera, so I’ve added red circles to show you where the glue dots go!)

Leave some curl in your pages when you attach the DSP to your cardstock.

Repeat this process again for the other pair of DSP/cardstock.

You’ll follow a very similar process to attach one ‘book’ to the other! This time, use a piece of Tear and Tape on either side of the score line.

Add strips of Tear and Tape along the top of your finished book, and attach it to your easel cardbase.

Use Dimensionals to attach your “D” piece to the cardbase.

This piece holds your book upright when the card is open.

Now decorate as you choose to finish the card!

A view of the card when “closed”. It’s not exactly flat enough for mailing, but it would fit in a large envelope!

Don’t forget that the Whale of  a Time DSP, along with fourteen other Designer Series Papers, are all on sale this month for a 15% discount! It’s a great time to stock up and save on all your favourites. See the full list here!

Happy Stampin’!

I saw this Double Gatefold card on one of the Facebook groups I belong to, and I loved it so much I had to try it myself! It’s so easy to do and it makes a huge impression. Thanks to demonstrator Dana Sullivan for the inspiration!

You’ll need two pieces of cardstock, both the same colour (I used Shaded Spruce).
Cardbase: 5.5 x 11″
Belly Band: 1 x 11″

You’ll also need a white insert cut to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″.

Then you’ll need several pieces of Designer Series Paper (I used Forever Greenery).
Two matching pieces measuring: 1-1/8” x 5-3/8”
Two matching pieces measuring: 2” x 5-3/8”
And another two matching pieces measuring: 2” x 5-3/8”

Score your cardbase at 1-1/4”, 3-3/8”, 7-5/8”, and 9-3/4”. Burnish all your folds.

Add your Designer Series Paper strips, one pair at a time. Your narrowest pair will go on the outermost edges.

Flip the cardbase over to add the final pair of DSP strips. This is the back of the card, but it will be visible from the front when folded.

Flip the cardbase back to original position, and add the white insert. Stamp an image and/or sentiment if desired. (The stamped image below is from Lovely You.)

Use the long narrow strip of cardstock to create a belly band. The ends will overlap in the front.

Decorate the belly band as desired to hide the seam. (I used the Forever Gold laser-cut paper, a punched circle, and a sentiment from Beautiful World).

This is the project we did at our very first Mystery Stamping event a few weeks ago! Mystery Stamping is super fun; everyone prepares supplies according to provided measurements, and then I guide the group through creating a card via a group Zoom call. It’s a ‘mystery’ because you don’t know until the end what the finished project will be … and it’s extra fun because everyone uses different papers, stamps, etc. and we get to see so many different interpretations of the same project. Here’s a screenshot of our group projects at the end of our Zoom call:

I hope you’ll join us for our next Mystery Stamping event! Watch this page for more details in October!

Happy Stampin’!

This week’s Stampin’ Sunday video features a showcase of the World of Good suite, and then I’ll walk you through how to make a really handsome card using some of the products from the suite.

This tutorial will show you how to make a W-fold card out of one sheet of 8.5 x 11″ cardstock. I’m using the World of Good suite for my project, but you can use whatever colour you like!

Cut your cardstock as follows, and burnish all score lines:

Cardbase: 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5″
W strip: 1.75 x 11, scored at 2.75, 5.5, and 8.25″
Panels: 2.5 x 2.75″ (4 pieces)

If desired, decorate the inside of your card with DSP (4 x 5.25″).

Decorate your four panels as desired. I used cardstock and DSP cut to 2-3/8 x 2-5/8″ to decorate the panels.

Attach the four panels to your W cardstock strip. I found it easiest to apply the adhesive to the cardstock strip, rather than the panels. Keep in mind the panels are somewhat narrower than the strip, so the adhesive shouldn’t go all the way to the edges.

The W strip with all panels added:

Fold up your W and apply adhesive to the back of the last panel. Attach to the inside right of your card.

Now apply adhesive to the back of the first panel of your W strip, and close your card. This panel will attach to the inside left of your card.

Here are some pics of the finished card:

Decorate the front of your card as desired.
