Die'sire Easel Card Base

We spotted this amazing tutorial for making an easel card using Die'sire dies over on Donna Mosley's blog, and she agreed to let us share it here so everyone could give this technique a try!

Here is a look at the fabulous Mulberry Wood card she made:

And here is how she made it (reprinted from her blog):

Mulberry Wood Friend
Die'sire Classical Frame die
Spectrum Noir alcohol pens
Crate Paper Farmhouse paper pad
Whimsy sentiment
Ribbon, flowers & button from stash
MS, Woodware & EK Success punches

Using the largest die from the Classical Frame die set attach to a piece of card as shown with low tack tape.

Ensure the bottom two pieces of tape are placed where shown and go around the back as shown.

Place onto base plate face up as shown so the tape is outside the cutting area. Tape onto plate to secure.

Put on top plate and run through machine.

After removing die, the pic above shows what you'll be left with.

Line up the corners of one side of the die with the third loop as shown.

Tape on the reverse as shown ensuring the loops are still matched up.

Tape on to plate again as shown ensuring the already cut part is outside of the cutting area.

So here is what it looks like.

Glue the loops of two at the top, to make a shaped card as shown.

Or.... three will make the easel card.

And here is a look at the side view of Donna's tremendous card:

We would love to see you give this technique a try! And thanks to Donna, for showing us all how to do it!
