Aperture Easel Card with the Snowflake Wishes Bundle

Whenever I feel the urge to learn another fun fold or find some inspiration, I like to visit Jay and Barry at Mitosu Crafts - and they never fail me!

This week, I was inspired by their tutorial for an Aperture Easel card.

In the learning phase, I tend to follow the tutorial quite closely and then I usually make another one or two cards with my own twist.

This is the aperture easel card when it is closed

This snowflake card was my first Aperture Easel card, and it's very similar to Jay's - although I did make some minor changes.

The side view provides the best image of the mechanism of this fun fold

Then, feeling more confident, I changed quite a bit more for the next two cards.

Infuriatingly, in posting these images, I have noticed some imperfections that I shall now rush off to rectify!  I'm hoping you'll forgive me when you also spot them!

And this is how those Aperture Easel Cards look when in the open position

So, huge thanks to Jay at Mitosu for his great tutorial - I really enjoyed making these cards - it's a great fun fold!

I used Pretty Peacock and Pool Party cardstock to match the gorgeous Christmas Gleaming paper

Projects such as this work really well with Stampin' Up Bundles - one bundle or even suite of products provides everything you need, all perfectly matched and coordinated!

The Christmas Gleaming paper I used for this card cried out for pairing with Mossy Meadow and Soft Sea Spray cardstock

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
