Trimming the Town Double Easel Card


I really enjoyed paper piecing with the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper while creating this double easel card!

I've created the scene to look lovely with the card folded flat and also with the 3D scene.


I die cut trees from one of the patterned sheets to cover up some things that didn't look quite right - like houses or trees that had been chopped in half where I've cut the paper to fit. I even added the 3 people to cover two tree stumps!

I think the trees and the people are perfectly placed to create the illusion of a snowy hilly scene.

 

I had the same problem with the mountain scene on this card. At the bottom of patterned paper I had houses chopped in half and again, it didn't look right.

I know this part isn't necessarily on display but I still wanted it to look perfect.


So I fussy cut some of the larger houses that I had spare, choosing houses in blue to keep the colours similar. I placed these houses over the areas I wanted to hide and my problem was solved!


This fun fold is really easy to do and there are lots of YouTube tutorials available to learn how to do this. Just search for Double Easel Card.

Creating this scene took a little while plus it really depends on what you've got available! I really enjoyed the process and finding ways to make it work.

The question is, will I be able to give this one away for Christmas or will I have to keep it? Papercrafters will know what I mean....
