Happy New Year! - Easel Card

Happy New Year everyone!


Now that the holiday season is over, I can get back to creating and playing with paper! I was given a challenge to create a card called an easel card. I had never created one before because I was under the impression that they were difficult to create. Well I was WRONG, LOL! They are absolutely the easiest thing to make!

Here is what mine looks like:




Easel cards come in different sizes. But I will give you the info on how I made mine. Take a piece of card stock that measures 4 x 11. Score it 5 1/2 inches & 8 inches. You will also need two base pieces of card stock measuring about 4 x 5 1/2 inches. Fold the longer piece down and into itself again. When folded, the fold will create a triangle. Adhere one of the smaller pieces to the folded card stock and the other to the bottom of the folded card stock. Use one piece (or more, LOL) of embellishment to keep the card in place...and that will make your easel card! The cut comes from the Winger Frolic cartridge and the bling and sentiments are from  CTMH (Holiday Wishes Stamp Set). The green paper is from Recollections. 

If you want more detailed instructions, shoot me an email and I'll send them to you! Enjoy!!!!! ♥
