Clean & Simple Easel Card Ideas

Check out these simple Easel Card Ideas with the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set!

This stamp set is part of the Snowflake Showcase promotion that ends on November 30th! That means this set will be GONE and no longer available! I have so enjoyed playing with this set and especially love the medallion and how the images layer on top of one another. It was also very fun to create these easel card ideas. Cards with a unique fold just keep things interesting!

Today's post includes two simple easel card ideas with the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set. These projects are both quick and easy to make!

One of the things I love about easel cards is that you never have to worry about them falling flat open as you do with a regular card.

Here are the insides of these cards:

For both of these easel card ideas, I’ve used purples and greens, one of my favorite color schemes. The colors used here include Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather, Mossy Meadow, and Pear Pizzazz ink. The card base is Gorgeous Grape.

On both of these easel card ideas,

  • I’ve used Rhinestone Jewels to embellish the images and
  • The focal pieces are both popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals

The easel card construction is actually really simple. I’ve included dimensions and a supply list for both projects at the end of this post. Scoring details are also included.
