Just Add Ink #640 - Just Add a Surprise - Greatest Journey


Hi! At Just Add Ink this week we are challenging you to Just Add a Surprise. 

If you are a regular follower you will know that I love a card that looks just like a regular card when you first see it .....

..... until you open it to reveal a fun 3D card. I've called this card design a Double Layer Easel Card. The Greatest Journey bundle and the Enjoy the Journey Designer Series Paper were perfect to create a scene with this card fold. 

I stamped the trees directly onto the DSP. Doesn't it look like it was printed on. 

To add the double layer, I made a long rectangular box. It keeps the 2 layers separated to add depth and is hidden by my rocky mound. I have more cards coming using this bundle so make sure you check back in. 

I love this fun design, and the fact that it folds flat to fit into a standard envelope is a bonus!

Make sure you pop on over to the Just Add Ink page to see how all the other Design Team members added a surprise. Why not enter your own creation? We always love seeing them!

  1. What a cool looking card. I've never tried a double easel before.

  2. Wow, this is such a clever way to add dimension to an easel card. You've really rocked it with the choice of papers, stamps and dies. Awesome card!

  3. This is so cool. Love the idea of the double easel and it adds so much to the beautiful scene. Love it. Hugz
