The Grand Dies from Spellbinder make constructing an easel card a breeze.  I love making easel cards and  these dies make the process quick and easy.  In this tutorial I will show you the steps involved for making a basic shaped easel card using the Grand Labels Four Die.

Materials Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

6-642E Heidi
6-605E Velvet
10-1001E White


LF-190 Grand labels Four
S4-248 Labels Thirteen
S5-034 Parisian Accents


LCED00030 Parisian Accents

JustRite Stamps:

CL02105 Elegant Frames

Other Materials Used:

Organza Ribbon
Versamark Pad
White Embossing Powder 


Step One:

Cut three pieces using your desired Spellbinder shape and size.  For my card I've used the second smallest die.

Step Two

Find the centre and score along the width of one of the cut pieces.
Score approximately 1cm from the top of the die. 

Step Three:

Flip your cardstock over and apply double sided tape to the folded edge. 

Step Four:

Turn the cardstock back over and apply tape to the bottom half of the piece. 

Step Five:

Attach the folded piece to base piece along the top as in the photo. 

Step Six:

Remove the backing from the remaining strips of tape and place the third piece on top of this.

You should now have a finished base for your easel card.


Apply a strip of cardstock or embellishment across the front of the base so that there is something for the card to rest on and keep it open. I've used a piece cut using one of the shapes from the Parisian Accents Dies.
