Hey crafty friends, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means? That it’s almost Galentine’s Day too! 😉 Let’s take a look at this fun pizza-shaped galentine I made, inspired by a sentiment in the Sassy Anti-Valentine stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs.
If you’d like to watch this card come to life, check out this video.
Easel cards are easy to make with large die cut shapes. I cut three 5½” circles and scored one at ½” and 3.” The scored circle is the center piece of the card. I glued the ½” flap to the back layer, and the larger bottom flap to the top circle. This creates a Z fold card base.
To create the pizza, I searched through my stash and found dies that looked like pizza toppings. I cut them from appropriate colored cardstock and added a little shading with brown ink and a small makeup brush. After the toppings were glued down, I popped up sentiment banners up with foam tape: one on the front of the card, and one inside. The popped up sentiment inside the card allows the easel to stand upright.
The products I used are linked below, but I encourage you to take a look through your dies and see what you can find. Rotate the shapes, imagine them cut from different colors and see if you can use them in unexpected ways. This is a great way to stretch your supplies and create a card around a sentiment when you don’t have a coordinating image stamp.
