What a romantic image of Paris ! When I received the two dies that I used on this card, I looked at the packaging images for ideas for colors and layout and then did some modification to the easel mechanism.
Changing the frame from a hanging charm to a larger flat panel on an easel was as simple as using ½ inch wide, red-sticky-permanent double-sided tape to hold in place the rectangle piece that was cut out for the frame. And adhering the flat panel to the easel.
Because the flat panel is larger than the original frame pull tab, I had to add an extension tab. I used clear removable tape to smooth over the catching point where the extension level changes. In order to be able to fit the card in an A2 envelope, I punched a hole and tied a ribbon to the tab as a pull grip.
But how does the card recipient know to pull the ribbon? Read my last post on CRX.

One thought on “Paris in Springtime”
That is a beautiful die. I love the way you used it…and your color scheme.
