Catch of the Day- Another Easel Card

Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing a card designed with the new Graphic 45 Catch of the Day 8x8 Paper Pad and a sentiment from the Stamp Simply Words of Encouragement stamp set along with dies/supplies (from Stamp Simply)!


I absolutely love this Graphic 45 Catch of the Day  paper!  

So many gorgeous patterns and perfect for summer cards as well as for masculine cards for the men in your life!

I decided to create another easel card was able to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers’ SC488 Sketch into the layout!  FYI- those of you who follow me know that I have a personal goal to create a card for each of the over 850+ SCS sketches- one more to mark off my list, woohoo!

I am also participating in the  Simon Says Monday “Red, White and/or Blue” Challenge  and the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.  

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Create the easel card base from 4 ¼” x 11” white cardstock (score at 5 ½” and on one of the 5 ½” panels, score again at 2 ¾”)- see the   Splitcoaststampers’ Easel Card tutorial for additional instructions.

Trim the panels from the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day paper – for the card front (sketch layer #5) from the red background paper- trim to approx. 3 ¾” x 5” .  For sketch layer #3 (from the dark blue patterned rectangle)- trim to approx. 2 ½” x 3 ½”.  Trim the lighthouse (for layer #4) from the cut-apart paper to approx. 3 ¼” x 4 ¼”.  

For the lower easel part of the card: from the red background paper- trim a piece approx. 3 ¾” x 2 ½”. Trim the strip of postage stamp border to approx. 3 ¾”.

Mount each of the above trimmed panels onto white cardstock, trim close to the edge.  Using a blending brush, apply Antique Linen Distress ink to the edges to “antique” the paper. Mount all onto navy cardstock and trim again, close to the edge.

To create the main card front panel, add the dark blue patterned rectangle (layer #2) directly to the red patterned background panel (layer #1).

Adhere a few pieces of cheesecloth to the upper and lower right-hand area, and to the middle left-hand near the top edge of the dark blue rectangle panel.

Adhere the lighthouse panel with dimensional foam (or chipboard)- for layer #4.

Fussy cut the postage stamp images from the designer paper, mount onto navy cardstock and trim close to the edge.

Adhere two postage stamps over the cheesecloth on the left (for layer #3 of the sketch) and one on the lower right (for layer #5).

De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Words ofEncouragement with Versafine Onyx Black  ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Die cut the sentiment with a circle die, mount onto a piece of navy cardstock (die cut with a larger circle die).  Use a blending brush to apply Antique Linen Distress ink to “antique” the paper.

Adhere the layered postage stamp strip to the red patterned paper rectangle (for the easel base) and mount the sentiment using dimensional foam and/or chipboard.

Adhere the sentiment panel onto the lower portion of the easel base with dimensional foam (or chipboard).

To finish off the card, adhere the layered lighthouse card front to the upper part of the easel base.
