Hello, and welcome to my latest card making guide /tutorial on how to make a quad easel card at home, this particular one is christmas card but of course you can make whatever style of quad easel card you want at home.
To begin with I took two pieces of red 12 x 12 card, I measured and cut out an 8 inch by 8 inch piece of card, 4 4 inch by 8 inch pieces of card and 4 4 inch by 4 inch pieces of card. (you will have a little left over keep this to one side for later) I then scored the 4 inch by 8 inch pieces at 4 inches in (in the centre) and 2 inches in from one side.
Next i took a piece of green mirror board and cut out 4 squares slightly smaller than 4 inches by 4 inches. I used a corner punch to round of the edges of the pieces of 4×4 card and the smaller squares of mirror board. I selected 4 toppers from a lili of the valley topper sheet, inked around the edges of the toppers with red pigment ink and layered them first on to the green mirror board and then on to the red 4×4 pieces.
Next I took the left over red card from earlier and stamped an ivy border on to it 4 times, cut out each image and then cut out slightly larger pieces of green mirror board to layer the images on to. Once you have done this all your pieces are complete and we are ready to start putting your card together.
Next take your base card (the 8×8 piece) and the pieces of 4 x 8 that you scored earlier and stick the 4×8 pieces to the 8×8 piece using flat glue each facing outward in a different direction at 90 degrees to one another as shown in the picture above.
All that’s left to do then is to tick your toppers to the 2 inch sections where you scored the card earlier and stick your ivy boarders to the base using 3d glue gel to act as a stopper. Your card is now complete. I hope you have enjoyed my card making tutorial for quad easel cards and I would love to hear any comments that you have.
