This particular card is an easel style so I am using a 6" x 6" size card blank as once it is completed because of the way the card is displayed it actually appears to be bigger and more substantial than it actually is.
Next cut out the images that will create the 3D elements of your design - in this case two layers of 'organza' and the footprint topper and the four pieces that will go together to produce the ribbon that makes up the easel stopper. Use super tacky glue to stick your ribbon pieces together and use paper clips to hold them until they are securely set. Again put to one side.
Using your foam mat and a larger ball tool work your way around them one at a time gentle pressing down the darker areas of 'organza' to create dips then go around again gently curving and shaping the lighter areas of 'organza' so eventually both pieces have a natural wavy look.
Taking your card blank place it with the folded edge across the top, open it up and fold the top section down towards the centre, gently but firmly run a scoring tool across the fold to create your easel without adding any creases. Using strong tape stick your completed front onto the front of your card lining up the lower edges and sides. Remember you are only sticking the bottom half of the topper to allow it to stand as an easel. I find the easiest way to make sure that I get this correct is to apply the tape to the actual card blank and not the topper.
Open your card up and using strong tape on the back of all four edges stick the insert of your card down making sure that it is placed centrally with an even edge all around it.
That basically is your card finished. When it is standing there is plenty of room on the back for the sender to write their message. In this instance because there is a certain amount of depth to the stopper that you wouldn't want to flatten if I was giving the card by hand I would use a slightly over large (7" x 7") envelope which would expand to accommodate the extra depth. If I was going to post it I would use a presentation box which can be readily purchased or there are many online tutorials enabling you to make your own quite easily.
There we go a pretty little card to welcome a new baby girl into the world. Watch this space for my next project which will be a small matching gift.
