Cornucopia Easel Card Dies- Made Easy

Hello Griffinites,

Happy Halloween to you. No tricks today, we have a real treat for you featuring the Cornucopia Easel Card Dies. This set of dies is so much fun to work with and was a customer request that we couldn’t wait to create for you! Included are fruit and vegetable dies, so you can fill your horn of plenty as much as you please. They also work beautifully with the Retro Thanksgiving Stickers that we introduced this year. From cabbages and beets to pumpkins and a turkey, the imagery that you know and love for Thanksgiving is right at your fingertips. We are going to walk you through making one of these gorgeous easel cards today; if you don’t have the Cornucopia Easel Card Dies, you can get them on sale here!

Let’s make a card together!

First, we cut a piece of matte gold foil cardstock with the intricate basket die.

A set of gold dies and a box on a marble table.

Next, the easel was made with one of our favorite double-sided cardstock patterns from the Thankfulness Papercrafting Kit.

A black floral cutting mat and a black floral cutting mat.

Fold on the score line and fold the top part of the easel forward.

Add tear tape to the tab.

Two pieces of paper with tape on them.

We cut and added a shadow layer (also Thankfulness Papercrafting Kit) to the easel.

Two pieces of gold paper with a piece of paper next to them.

Add your gold cornucopia with foam adhesive.

A table with a bunch of vegetables and a notebook.

Fill your cornucopia with stickers from Retro Thanksgiving Stickers. We love the way that the colorful fruits and vegetables complete the themed card.

It would be soooo great if we had ready made envelopes for all these easel cards. Anybody else want to comment? I have to mail almost all of them, so perfectly fitting envelopes would be wonderful
