Fun Fold Friday#28 - Peony Garden Triple Easel Card

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to week 28 of my Fun Fold Friday series, I’m going to show you how to make a Triple Easel Card using the beautiful Peony Garden dsp. There is a video tutorial over on my YouTube channel, click on the link below:


1 piece of whisper white card 6" x 12",  4 1/2" x 9",  3 1/2" x 7", 6" square, 4 1/2" square, 3 1/2" square and a scrap for the sentiment
2 pieces of silver foil 5 3/4" square, 2 pieces 4 1/4" square, 2 pieces 3 1/4" square and a scrap to mat the sentiment
2 pieces of dsp 5 1/2" square, 2 pieces 4" square and 2 pieces 3" square (Peony Garden)
Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon
Silver edged whisper white ribbon
Rectangular postage stamp punch
Posted for you stamp set
Basic grey ink
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the 6" x 12" piece at 3" and 6", score the 4 1/2" x 9" at 2 1/4" and 4 1/2 and the 3 1/2" x 7" one at 1 3/4" and 3 1/2".

Fold and burnish the scores, fold the cards in half and then fold the other score like a mountain fold so that it will stand up like an easel on all three sizes.

I've chosen to alternate the colours on my dsp layers, grey, petal pink, grey on the easels and petal pink, grey, petal pink on the bases.  Adhere the silver foil mat and the dsp layers to all three bases leaving a small border on all layers.

Now adhere the other dsp squares to the foil mats and wrap a piece of coordinating ribbon around the left hand side and secure on the back with some sticky tape.  Then add these mats and layers to the squares of whisper white for the easels, again leaving a border on each layer. Make a small bow for each of the sizes with the coordinating ribbons and add with glue dots to the top left hand side of the easels.

Each square layer now needs to be fixed to the base, so close the card up and lay it flat on the table.  Put adhesive on the bottom half of the top piece (furthest from the fold in the card) and add the square layer on top to fix. Make sure that the edges line up so that the easel part behind isn't visible.  Do this with all three sizes.

Next, stand the largest card on the table with the easel upright and decide how far back it needs to go to adhere the middle one in front of it.  Put adhesive on the back half of the base of the middle card and position centrally on the base of the larger card (see picture).  Then repeat with the smallest card.

To make the stopper for the smallest size, I have stamped a sentiment from Posted for you using basic grey  ink and punched out with the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch.  Cut a mat of silver foil just slightly larger than the sentiment layer and adhere the two together.  Add dimensionals to the back and position this in the centre of the base of the smallest card to act as the stopper.

There you are a very pretty showstopper of a card which can be as decorated or as simple as you like. I decided to let the dsp do the talking as it is so detailed.  This would make a pretty birthday or wedding or anniversary card. I hope that you like it and will give it a try.
