How To Easel Card


I have wanted to make one of these for a while now.. so thought while I make one.. why not do one as a tutorial to share with others who haven't ever made one before.  I have also added this to the Saturday's Challenge.. for easel cards..

Also I have added it to Simon Says Challenge.

I gathered together...

Ink pads
Pearl touch
Rubber Stamp

1.  Your base card stock should be approx 21 cm x 10.5 cm  (8.5 in x 4.3 in)

2.  Fold this at 10.5 cm ( 4.3 in - so in half) and then again at 15.8 cm.. (6.4 in approx - so that will be one side in half again).

3.  Cut a square of approx 15. 5 cm x 10.5cm ( 6.2 in x 4.3 in - using the same base card stock.

4.  Cut a piece of your paper to 10 cm x 10 cm. (4 in x 4 inch)

5.  Ink all the edges of the square matt the paper and then stick together.

6. Stamp your image on to your scrap card, paint and glitter.

7.  Stick your square matt to the base card.

8.  Measure your smaller paper to 10.5 cm x 6 cm   (4.3 in x 2.6 in) and ink all edges.  Add your ribbon.

9.  Stick this to the bottom on your card on the inner side.

10.  Add your glittered stamped image and a daisy or what ever you like.  You can see that I have used a daisy along with the pearl drops.

It is then ready to give to that someone special!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  

Don't forget to check the Envelope section as I have added the size and directions to make one just for this Easel card!

Wow - now aren't you the talented one! I do so love those fantastic daisies. Putting a daisy as your stopper really makes it pop out with the background paper. The dragon fly is so lovely - good coloring Jacqui - wonderful tutorial! I just learned from someone's blog (darn it - hmmm...I'll have to back track to find out). So glad you made this one; I'll have to try it - there's different ways to make them and I am a step by step instructions so this is great!
