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!
