Video: Silk Screen Inspired Easel Card Featuring the March My Monthly Hero Kit

Mar 05, 2024 Channin Pelletier

Hello friends!! It’s Channin here and today I’m creating a fun easel card inspired by Japanese silk screen landscapes and featuring stamp and dies from the Classic and Premium March My Monthly Hero Kits.

Watch below or on the Hero Arts YouTube channel.

To create this card I first die cut an A2 panel of Dove White cardstock with the mountain-scape die from the Classic and Premium March My Monthly Hero Kits. I made sure to position the die in the upper half of the panel, so lowest point of the die did not go below 2 3/4” or the middle. After I die cut the panel I then stamped the detail layer for the mountains from the clear 6” x 8” stamp set (Classic & Premium) in Deep Ocean Core Ink (Classic & Premium). Next, I stamped the base layer for the mountains first in Mist and then inked just the mountain tops in Periwinkle (Classic & Premium) to create a gradation.  

I then stamped the water, first in Periwinkle and then I inked up just the bottom of the water in Deep Ocean to also create a gradation. Next, I ink-blended the mountains in Mist and then ink-blended over the water in Periwinkle, Deep Ocean and Nautical. I then stamped the reflection of the sun in Cherry (Classic & Premium) and then the panel by stamping a boat and gate in Pitch Black.

Next, I scored the front of an A2 top-folding Dove White card base at 2 3/4” and made a valley fold. I then flipped the card base over so the 5 1/2” fold was at the bottom and then ink-blended over the back panel with Cotton Candy and Pink Grapefruit Core Inks to create a gradation. Next, I stamped the sun in Cherry and Cranberry inks and finished the panel by stamping a sentiment in Pitch Black

I trimmed about 1/8” off the top of the back panel and then adhered mountain scene panel to the front 2 3/4” flap. Next, I adhered the back panel to the front of a second A2 top-folding Dove White card base. I then trimmed off the overhang from the front of the second card base to complete the card.

I hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by!
