This tutorial is for the basic 'how-to' of an easel card itself. You are free to pick your own colors, stamp set/s and embellishments for your card---or feel very free to copy mine. :) Measurements will be based on my color choices.
- So Saffron: 11" x 4-1/4". Score at 5-1/2" and fold in half. Crease with bone folder.
- Take the front of your card, score at 2.75 inches and fold it under (making a 'mountain'), creasing with your bone folder. It should now make a tent with the back of your card.
- Cut a piece of Old Olive into 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" and adhere to the front of your card using adhesive below the crease only so the top of it pretty much points into the air.
- Attach a piece of 3-3/4" x 4-5/8" of Bashful Blue card stock to the Old Olive c.s.--but first punch the long edge of a 1" x 3-3/4" So Saffron c.s. piece and attach it to the back of the Old Olive c.s.
- Open card and set a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Old Olive card stock inside. On the lower half, place a piece of 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" Bashful Blue card stock---but first punch one long edge of a 1" x 3-3/4" piece of So Saffron card stock and attach it to the back.
- Place some sort of embellishment (I used the large butterfly) near where the 'easel' meets the base piece, to keep the easel from sliding flat.
- Finish stamping and embellishing, unless you've done so along the way, and your card is complete.
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial. Please ask if you have any questions.
