A Little Birdie Told Me

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #405 begins today, Friday, July 31, and runs until Thursday evening, August 13, 2020. This is a Tictactoe challenge meaning that I selected three colors in a row - Smoothie, Lemonade & Fern. Once the row was chosen I was free to use any other colors that were on the board plus neutrals. I also used Almond, Glacier, Mink & Toffee. For the focal point, I used pretty patterned papers that matched up nicely with the color grid below:
This triple easel card went together so quickly that I made several using different paper and colors. I found a tutorial on YouTube, so click HERE if you wish to view it.  I used the measurements and shapes provided in the tutorial, changing only the sentiment placement. I also added some pearls. 
When completed, this card is 4" x 5" and folds flat to fit perfectly into an A2 envelope when allowing for thickness. It requires additional postage of $0.15 because it weighs more than one ounce, then another additional $0.15 because it is rigid and thick, for a total of $0.85 in the USA.

Card folded flat:

  1. So pretty, love the triple easel card, and I will be checking out the tutorial for a future card... great selection of papers... love it all.

  2. Beautiful triple easel card and that pattern paper works perfectly!

  3. This is so pretty - love that bird patterned paper. Triple Easel cards pack such a big punch and this one is no exception.

  4. Oh wow, that's amazing! Love that paper and your sentiment is perfect. Great design! :)

  5. What a gorgeous card! The triple easel feature is a great way to display all those pretty birds! Beautiful way to use your colors!

  6. What a knock-out design! It's worth whatever extra postage it costs, just because it is so unusual and fancy. The bird print paper looks like you hand-painted it. You didn't mention this, so I guess not; but wow, it's a stunner!
