Our very own lovely Maxine has made a picture tutorial for an 'Easel' card - now you can follow it step by step with written and pictorial instructions. :) :)

I am sure you will find that Maxine's instructions are easy and clear to follow :)

I will surely be making  one of these - it will be my first...Thank you Maxine. :)

I have used :-

White card stock size 5" x 11" for the base of the card

White card stock size 5" x 5.5" for the front of the card

Percy Sledging Stamp - from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs
Backing papers

And embellishments.

You can make easel cards in different sizes.

1. Take your base card and fold it in half.

2. Fold one side in half again.

3. Colour your image and make the front of your card using your backing papers
and embellishments.

4. Decorate the base card, using backing papers and embellishments.

5. Add brads to your base, these will hold your card in place when it is standing up.

Now you have a gorgeous 'Easel' card. :)

We hope you have found this tutorial helpful and easy to follow. :)

Here is also a link to make up some labels to show the recipient  how to stand their card. :)

Please let us know if you use this tutorial so we can come and see your creation. :)

Happy Crafting
