I started by sizing the Black & White version of Eunice & Gertrude to 5"x3-1/4" on each half of the page. I then strung the colored version of crafting supplies in a line to form a border as shown. Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.


Color as desired. I used Copic® Markers, a list of colors are listed above.





Print sentiments as desired on the yellow - Momenta® Cardstock Pad. Cut two (2) 7"x2-1/2" rectangles, Cut sentiment rectangles 7"x1-1/4".


Fussy cut the border of crafting supplies.


Score and fold 7"x5" cardbase at 2-1/2" and at 5".


Open cardbase, adhere the sentiment rectangle 7"x1-1/4" to the bottom of the inside of cardbase. 1" from the bottom adhere the Crafting Supplies® Border using Foam® Tape as shown.




Trim the border to card size.






The two (2) 7"x2-1/2" yellow rectangles edge using Y015. Edge only 3 sides of each as shown.




Adhere each rectangle to the front of card on each fold section as shown.





Card should fold as shown into easel.






Using a straight edge, tear the main image of Eunice & Gertrude to 5-1/8"x3-1/2" rectangle.





Adhere the main image of Eunice and Gertrude centered on the 5-5/8"x4" pink - Momenta® Cardstock Pad. Edge the pink using R85 as shown.





Cut a green, peach and blue Stitched Tag® Frame and edge as shown. Adhere the blue stitched tag frame to the card front on far left. Adhere the main image to the far right as shown. Adhere the peach and green stitched tags to the left overlapping both the blue stitched tag and the main image as shown.


Using Dimensional® Glue adhere 3 random

Iridescent Sequins on the main image.










OPTIONAL: Adhered a stitched tag and two (2) scrap strips and a Name plaque to the backside of the card as shown. I also drew a few lines and dots along the edges of the image using a Black Copic Multi-liner.



I hope you enjoyed this crop with Eunice and Gertrude as we did sharing it with you.

I received a new palette die set in the mail that I do not remember ordering, but is perfect for the theme of "Crafty Friends". So- I decided to make another card using it. Reminds me of crafting with my friend Margaret. The ideas floating in the air and the glitter, ink and paper everywhere.

We had a lot of fun and passed many an hour... This is the card I create as a memory to those times.

I hope you enjoy it.
