Hello everyone! Jenn here to share a pretty easel card I created using die cut flowers and Rinea Foiled papers.
I love this palette of black and white with the turquoise,jade green, and silver foiled papers!

Using a mix of the glossy and starstruck foiled papers adds texture to the floral die cuts.
To create the card the die cutting was my first step. I cut several flowers using dies from my stash.
I cut more than I actually used but these can be stored and used for another project. Next I cut a mandala die from white cardstock, one from white, and a scalloped circle die from each as well. I then laid the parts out and began building my flowers to get a visual of my card before doing any gluing or construction.
After rearranging a few times, I inked the edges of my patterned paper using both Black Soot and Salvaged Patina Distress Inks.
For the easel base:
Cut black cardstock to 5 1/2" X 11 1/2". Score at 2 3/4" , 5 1/2", and 11". This will leave a 1/2" tab at the bottom to add a pocket. Create the pocket using black cardstock cut to 6 1/2" X 2". Score both sides at 1/2".Press the 1/2" score lines flat. These will adhere to the card bottom inside on the 1/2" scored flap.
Add jade starstruck foiled paper to inside along with the white mandala die cut. Add glue to the 1/2" scored side tabs and adhere pocket. Decorate as seen.
Cut another piece of black cardstock to 5 5/8" X 5 5/8" to make a base. Adhere the patterned paper leaving a small black edge all the way around. Next I adhered the black die cut mandala, white scalloped circle (stamped with sentiment). Carefully build the flowers alternating colors and textures. I added some bling to my flower centers as well. Use flower making tools to fluff the petals for more dimension.
This is such a fun project! The pocket can be used for a gift card or other surprise.
