Happy Valentine's Day Triple Easel Card!

 Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!  Today I have a photo tutorial for you showing how to create the Happy Valentine's Triple Easel card from your January Creative Kit of The Month - For The Love of Cats and Dogs inspiration insert. 
The original directions for this Triple Easel card can be found at Splitcoaststampers.  Of course, I changed mine up a bit so that its perfect for Valentine's Day!

To make this card you will need the following items from your kit!  Plus I used Big Scalloped Circles, Standard Circles, Scalloped Hearts and Classic Hearts die templates from Spellbinders Paper Arts.  Of course, any nesting die templates or punches will do!

Now you need to cut the black cardstock into three pieces - one 4 1/2 x 9", one 4 x 8" and one 3 1/2 x 7".  Fold piece in half.  Using the 3 largest sets of scalloped circles dies in your set, place the die so that part of the die is off the folded edge.  Run these thru your die cutter!

Now you will fold the top part of this little scalloped circle in half. 

Adhere the bottoms of the three scalloped circles together to form your card.

 Now you will need to die cut some more to decorate your card.

 I cut/embossed the three largest scalloped hearts out of red cardstock and the three largest classic hearts out of patterned paper.  Adhere these together and adhere the onto the folded portion of the easel card.

This is what it will look like after you adhere everything into place!  Now its time to have fun decorating this fun card!

Here is a close-up of the card!  I just used a glue dot right in the middle of the "O" in love to get my "love" clip to stick to the red cardstock.  After sticking it into place, I just trimmed around the clip....easy peasy!

This card was alot of fun to make!  I hope you will give it a try!  Thanks for checking out the blog today!
