I found old instructions in my pile of instructions for an easel card. I hadn’t made one in years! With the DSP sale going on now, I thought this was a great time to show you how to do it. All three cards in my video use a lot of DSP! And they’re all on sale!
These cards will fit into a regular size envelope, but they will weigh a little more so shipping might be more.
I make this card from start to finish in the video. I made a PDF of all the measurements. Here it is- but don’t forget, you can look at all my instructions under “instructions” on the right side. Or on the bottom from a phone.
Most everything on this card is from the Zoo Crew DSP: the animals, the flower paper and the black & white paper. The Lemon Lolly striped paper is from the Bright & Beautiful DSP.
I used the Zany Zoo dies on this card: the animals, the sentiment, and the scallop edge on the top easel.
For the flower DSP, I decided to add a little more color to it. Using the white Pearlized Enamel, I put a dot in the middle of each flower. Let it dry, then colored it with my Lemon Lolly Blend.
Here’s everything I used. Let me know if you have any questions!
GAH! I love these dang animals!
Once again, all the animals on this card come from the DSP. There’s a stamp and a die for the turtle, but the other animals do not have stamps or dies.
The curtains and the scalloped top are from the dies. Even the curtain ties are from the dies! I used the DSP for the curtains and top, and Basic Black for the ties.
The background cardstock is Pebbled Path- one of the new In Colors.
The “stage” is Basic White cut 1-1/4″ x 5-3/8″. I embossed it with the Timber embossing folder.
For the animals, I colored all of them except the two frogs- they were already colored.
The warthog is colored with Crumb Cake Blends.
The turtle is colored with Lemon Lolly and Lemon Lime Twist Blends. His microphone is Crumb Cake and Gray Granite.
The bear was first colored with the ML800 Blends, then light Crumb Cake on top. His tummy, tail and snout are light Crumb Cake.
The sentiment and the sentiment inside (which I don’t show but it says “Happy Birthday to You” are both from the Zany Zoo stamp set. For the “something great…” I used Memento Ink on white paper, die cut with the new Countryside Corners dies. I then used a Blending Brush with Lemon Lolly ink to give it a little color.
The embellishments are the Glossy Dots (carrying over from the 22-23 catalog) and the new Adhesive Backed Solid Gems.

I had to get this suite- Zoo Crew- the stamps and the DSP are so dang adorable. GREAT for kid cards!
For this card, I die cut the raccoons from the DSP. Each piece of the DSP has animals on one side of it. There is the same raccoon in the stamps, so there’s a die that cuts it. For the elephant, it is just in the paper- there is not a stamp of him. He was pretty easy to fussy cut. There are tons of different animals on the DSP. Some are die cuttable, some not. They are all cute!
In the paper, some of the animals are not colored- just the things they hold are colored. So, I used my blends to color the rest of them. I used Gray Granite on the elephant, and the new Pecan Pie for the raccoons.
The background was made with the Dots & Spots dies and the NEW Lemon Lolly and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I absolutely LOVE the Lemon Lolly.
I used the Basic Borders dies with Crumb Cake to make a little hill for the animals to stand on. I then embossed it with the Painted Texture embossing folder.
The ribbon on the bottom is also from the Zoo Crew suite.
The sentiment is from the Zany Zoo stamp set. I stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink and die cut with one of the Zany Zoo dies. I then stamped the confetti (part of the Zany Zoo) with Memento and colored with Blends: Lemon Lolly, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.
So, this card uses everything that comes with the Zoo Crew suite! Check back on 5/2/23 for full list of supplies used.
