How to make a 3D Shell Easel card with G45 By The Sea Paper collection

 Hi everyone :-)
Made a shell card for my mothers birthday With the gorgeous By The Sea paper collection from Graphic 45 to go with the wallet photo mat album and decided to make one more so you can see how it is made. The tutorial is for the left card but they are both build up the same way.
The cards are 7 x 6 inch


Video tutorial

 The tags can be taken out for some journaling or write the receivers name.

This card is sea blue in the base and I used G 45 cordinations paper for this.

Here the card is folded up and now the little boy show up :-)
Plase on the bottom front to write the receivers name.

Inside there is place for a personal message.

Here is the card for the video tutorial

A little aquarium on the bottom :-)

 Here is place for a personal note.

And also inside :-)

 Love this playing children :-)

Measurements for the base.

Line up the ruler 1 inch from the bottom and make a 10 inch half circle. 

 Fold red line mountain and black line wally. 

Glue hinges on both sides

Score every 1/4 inch for the fan. It is best to score every half inch on one side and then turn around and score 1/4 - 3/4 - 1 1/4 and continue to the end

Base for the easel card

Supply list:
