Hey Cupcake & Party Time Easel Cards

Easel cards are a fairly new concept to me even though they've been around for quite some time!  Today I'm sharing a set of four cards featuring the 
Hey Cupcake and Party Time Collections

The formula for creating the card base is simple:
Cut an 8.5"X11" sheet of cardstock in half along the width; your two (cut) pieces will measure 4.25"X11".  Next, score the length at 2.75" and 5.5".  
The mats and designing will take place on the first 2.75" flap. 

Cut a mat of patterned paper to measure 4"X5.25" and attach to the inside of the card (the non-scored 4.25"X5.5" section).

Next, cut another mat of the same size.  The mat will be attached to the first flap, so be sure to apply adhesive to the bottom half of the mat only.

To decorate I used various stand-alone dies, swatches of create-a-cards, die-cuts, stickers, etc.
Finally, for each of the cards, I created a "stopper" to maintain the easel shape.
I used border stickers and die-cuts and then attached them with foam adhesive about 1/3" of the way down.

Please visit my YouTube channel to see a quick step-out of how the card is assembled.  These also fit neatly inside of a standard A2 envelope!

If you love cardmaking and haven't tried this style yet, I hope you'll give it a go!

Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
