Easel Card with sticky notes

I saw this easel card on a crafter’s website once, but now I can’t find the site.  However, I really wanted to make these for a few friends that I knew would really like one for their desks.  I worked and worked and worked until I got it just the way I wanted it. And I’m so excited and happy with the final result.  You will see the ‘evolution’ from the lavender to the yellow to the green as I resolved my issues.  Working with the multiple square shapes in KNK Studio, I was having a hard time keeping all the layers straight, with how I wanted it to look.  Then I had a ‘moment’ and I was soooo excited!  I remembered one of Sandy’s videos on “Clipping” and I used it for my patterned pieces.   This was a great way to keep them visually organized!

I love these Magnolia and Gorguss stamps – I can’t get enough of them.  I specifically made the inset layers to accommodate these stamps , however you could adjust the group down to any size desired (it really can’t go any larger).  I drew the wooden bench under the Magnolia girl on the green easel card with a multiliner.  The images are colored with Copic markers and the flowers are by Prima.

About Cuttin' with KNK (Michele)

I am the proud mother of 2 grown children, waiting for grandchildren some day. I've been married to my best friend since 1988. I have been crafting since I was a girl - I can't even remember a time when I wasn't creating something, and I've tried nearly everything. I discovered KNK in 2009 and have loved the company and its products ever since. The machines are so versatile and enhance my own creativity. It is rare that I make something without my KNKs.

    • Thank you, Chad. I cut all the pieces on my KNK Maxx because I can’t seem to get the boxes ‘square’ on any of my paper trimmers. I also printed my own 13″ x 19″ paper for a new equine theme I’m working on. I hope to share that one with you soon.

  4. Glad you didn’t give up! They turned out gorgeous! Your friends will love them. Love they hold note paper too.

  5. Michele, do you have assembly directions? IE scoring measurements, box assembly, etc. Between the paper sizes and the pictures I hace 3/4 of what I need to make this, just need the other 1/4. Thanks!

  6. These are great and would brighten up anyone’s desk and work day. Your coworkers are very lucky.

  7. Love, Love, Love your card. It is just beautiful. I really like the colors and the flowers make it so dainty and fresh. I would like to have one sitting on my desk. Great idea and thanks for sharing.
