Fun Fold Friday: Sliding Easel Card Tutorial

SDBH May 2016

SDBH May 2016 side

I made this card for the May Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop .   I first made this style of card  back in February for a challenge.  You can see that card here.  This is a fun card to make and receive.  I don't know the proper name of this fold so for now I am calling it a Sliding Easel card.   Ready to get started?  Here we go!

Sliding Easel 1

Step 1.

Layer these 3 as shown in the picture above.

    *4-1/4" x 5-1/2"  Bermuda Bay CS

    *4" x  5-1/4"  Shine On DSP

    *3-3/4" x 5" Whisper White CS

Step 2.

Layer these 2 as shown in the picture above.

    *3-3/4" x 4-1/4" Pool Party CS, scored at 3-3/4"

    *3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Shine On DSP

Decorate as desired.


Step 3.

Sliding Easel 2

1" x 2-1/2" Bermuda Bay CS, scored at each end at 1/2"

1-1/4" x 4" Shine On DSP

1-1/2" x 10-1/2" Bermuda Bay CS, scored at 4", 8-1/4"

Layer the Shine On DSP on to the middle section of the 1-1/2" x 10-1/2" Bermuda Bay CS.  Punch out a half circle in the center of the DSP using a 1" circle punch.

Fold the ends back along the score lines and using the half circle you just punched as a template punch again.

Attach the band to the piece you made in Step 2.

Step 4. 

Here comes the hardest part of this whole card and really, it isn't very hard at all!

Take the 1" x 2-1/2" piece of Bermuda Bay CS and apply adhesive (something strong like Tear and Tape or Fast Fuse) to one of the 1/2" end sections.  Position this piece 1/8"-1/4" below the edge of the Whisper White CS.   Add some adhesive to the other end (see photo below).

Sliding Easel 3

Now we are going to attach the piece you constructed in step 3 to the card base.  Position the piece from step 3 so it covers the Whisper White layer and press down to attach it to the 1" x 2-1/2" Bermuda Bay piece.

This is what the view from the top looks like.

Now lay it flat and wrap the ends of the band around the card base and secure just the ends of the band to each other with adhesive. The band is what moves the panel up and down.

To stamp the inside of the card move the band up until the easel stands up and mark where you need to stamp or just stamp.
