Easel Card

I have fallen in love with a new (to me) style card called the easel style. It is very easy to made but looks fantastic. This card was made using a digital image by Mo's Digital Pencil Shop called Fan's Cricket, and colored with my Copic Markers. I also used the Cricut Cartridge called Pagoda to do the fan and the word "Love".

This card is a 41/4 x 5 1/2 card. To make the easel cut a 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock in half to have a piece that is 4 1/4 x 11. Then score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.

Make the front of your card. Apply adhesive to the first scored section (2 3/4 x 4 1/4), then attach the bottom section of your card front to this section. The last thing you need to do is attach something to the bottom section where you want your open card to rest on. I also used pop dots to raise it up.

Hope you have as much fun making this card as I did.
