Blackberry Beauty Reverse Easel Thank You Card - Kylie Bertucci's International Gallery

 Hi Everyone,

I have decided this month to make a reverse easel fun fold card showcasing some of the fabulous new designer series paper in the Mini Catalogue, it's called Blackberry Beauty and it's full of rich colours and gold highlights.  I love Blackberry Bliss and Rich Razzleberry but I very rarely use them so this is my chance. I hope that you like it, there is a video tutorial (linked below) and I would be really grateful if you could click on the Voting Link to pop over to the Gallery and give me your support. If I manage to get into the top ten, I get to take part in an international blog hop at the end of the month with Kylie and the other winners, so fingers crossed.

1 piece of blackberry bliss card stock 5 7/8" x 10", scrap 1 1/4" x 4 1/8" for the sentiment
4 pieces of gold foil 2 1/4" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 4 3/4" 5 5/8"
1 piece of basic white card stock 2" x 5 3/8", 1 piece 3/4" x 3 5/8"
1 piece of dsp 4 1/2" x 5 3/8", 3 pieces 2" x 5 3/8", 1 piece 1" x 3 7/8", 1 piece 2 1/2" x 4" (for the easel so watch the direction of the pattern)
Blackberry Bliss ink
Ornate Thanks stamp set
Stitched So Sweetly dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side, score the blackberry bliss at 2 1/2" and 5" and fold and burnish as though you are making a Z Fold card.

Die cut the largest stitched rectangle from the centre of the largest piece of gold foil card and select an image in the dsp that you want to put on the easel and die cut that with the next size down.

Adhere all the gold mat layers to the card base, they go on both sides of the reverse stand panels.

Add the dsp layers over the top of each of these, leaving one on the reverse empty for the white message layer.

Stamp a sentiment on the white layer for the back of the card and also the strip that will form the stopper on the card front. Add the message layer to the reverse of the card. Layer the sentiment up with the strip of dsp and then the strip of card.

Add the dsp die cut to the gold foil layer with adhesive and then add to the top section of the card in the position you want it, as centrally as possible. I've added mine with dimensionals on the top third.  Then add the sentiment mats to the card base in the position you want so that the easel is at the angle you like. I again used dimensionals to give it enough height to act as a stopper when the card is displayed.

I do hope that you like my card and will pop over and vote for me, I would really appreciate your support.
