Calla Lily Easel Card with Flappy Folds Project and some printing tips for any newbies

Happy Wednesday!!


I hope this post finds you well :-)


It's a bit of a wet and yucky day here so i am having a Craft Room Day to get ahead with some sample making.


I'm super excited to share today's New Kit with you, it was requested by one of my lovely customers and i have thoroughly enjoyed creating it.




In the Kit you have a selection of toppers, tags, panels, sentiments, bows, numbers, inserts, outserts, card blanks and beautiful backing papers - including a few plain sheets so you can colour co-ordinate your matting and layering or your die cut elements.


Zantedeschia - White Calla Lily Bouquet Cardmaking and Papercrafting KIT PDF Digital Download contains 30 A4 Pages

You can find the kit on the website here as an instant digital download - https://shop.obyd.co.uk/b/FY6LP


As with all of our sheets and kits it has a really user-friendly Angel Policy which is on the listing page on the website. You may sell anything that you have HAND MADE with my downloads.


Once you have this downloaded and saved on your computer you can print this time and time again. You can make and sell as many handmade cards as you like there is no limit **see listing for full details.


Created as a PDF document it is all ready to go all you have to do is use your printer settings to select the sheets you want to print.


The document will open like this with all of the pages displayed on the left so you can go through can pick which ones you want to print



All printer menu's are different but just to give you an idea.. this is what mine looks like -

Once i have elected to Print i can go through the "pages" section and select what i want to print (so you don't have to print the entire document)



If your printer allows - you may want to select borderless printing this will enable your full sheet designs (backing papers and inserts) to print edge to edge


In the UK we use A4 as standard but if you are overseas it may be Letter size.



For best results always select the appropriate type of paper you are using - glossy/ matte/ plain

and ALWAYS select the BEST print option for best results


And just like any machine in your craft room please ensure you do regular maintenance on your printer by cleaning your heads and rollers (see manual for how to clean your model - there are some great youtube videos)

This will help keep your print-outs nice and vibrant.



Here is a closer look at the sheets included in the kit:
