Today, Pocono Pam joins us as she shares her beautiful project featuring the United As One stamp set. She has also invited guests to join us, so be sure to visit their links at the end of the post! Now let's see what Pam is sharing with us today...
Hola everyone! Pocono Pam here. I am super excited about the newly released United As One stamp set. This is the first in the Unity Collection - a partnership collaboration with Hero Arts and the amazing Dana Joy. I hope United As One will make a positive impact in the creative community.
Today I am sharing an open book easel card. I started with a black A2 card base and folded one side in half. Below please find the measurements for the additional pieces to completed the card.
I adhered patterned paper to the base. I then folded the large and small page mats and pages in half. The large and small page mats are card stock while the pages are patterned paper. I stamped the sentiments on the right side of the small page. It would have been difficult to stamp after the card was assembled. I then curled the ends of the large and small mats and pages with a pencil.
I turned both the large and small pieces face down. Setting the large mat aside, I placed double-sided tape down the center of the small mat and page. I placed smaller pieces of double-sided tape on the opposite sides.
For the large page mat, starting about a 1/4 inch down from the top, I placed double-sided tape long enough to cover 1/2 of the back. Small pieces of double sided tape are on the opposite sides.
I then assembled the book. Removing the backing off of the tape, I adhered the small page spine to the center of the small page mat. I then slightly pushed back one side of the page and adhered it to the mat doing the same on the opposite side.
I repeated the process by adding the large page to the large mat. Next, I adhered the small page assembly to the center of the large page assembly. Removing the backing from the large mat, I adhered it to the folded side of the base. I assembled the stopper strip and adhered it to the flat side of the base and embellished.
Hope you enjoyed my open book easel card. Thanks for taking a peek!
