Of course – this collection is perfect for birthday cards! We’ve created a selection to show you just how easy it is to create some really beautiful designs with this range. First off, we’re showing you how to make your own easel card, and we’ve also added some other card designs for you to try. Read on for our tutorial…

You will Need:

Dovecraft 6” x 6” Card Blank,

Make a Wish 8” x 8” Paper Pack, Decoupage Pad, Puffy Stickers, Wooden Sundae Toppers,

Dovecraft A4 Cardstock,

Adhesives, including Foam Squares,


How to Make:

1. Draw a circle onto your card blank against the fold of the card. Cut out the circle shape so that you’re left with a circular card blank.


2. Fold one half of the card in half towards the fold, as shown below.


3. Cut another circle from the Dovecraft cardstock, the same size as your previous circles. Adhere this to the folded circle to create the easel shape.


You should be left with this shape:


4. Cover your blank card with the fun Make a Wish papers.


5. Build a decoupage design using foam pads. We chose this fun design featuring a selection of presents and balloons for this particular card!


6. Adhere your built decoupage design to your card.


7. Add a sentiment to the bottom part of your card using foam tape, to act as a stopper for the easel card so that it can stand.


8. Finish by adding puffy stickers and an adorable wooden sundae topper to finish!


You now have your finished easel card! This makes a great dimensional card that folds flat to fit in an envelope.


Now that you’ve got this easel card design mastered, why not use different decoupage designs and toppers to create other fun cards?! All of the papers and embellishments work perfectly together so that you can come up with endless combinations.


Your friends and family will really love receiving Make a Wish cards!
