The Easel Card

Today's Whimsie Doodles Tuesday tutorial is the easel card, which has been a staple at SCS for the last year or so!  There is a tutorial there as well if you find that my instructions aren't clear!  I love this card because  it's perfect for displaying one of your favorite images, and very easy to make!

Here is what you'll need:
One 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock
One 4 1/4" square piece of cardstock
Scoring tool
Adhesive
Additional cardstock & designer paper for card inside and card front
Stamps or Digistamps
Ink, Coloring Tools and Embellishments

Step1:
Start out with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock and score at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4".
Prefold all score lines (mountain, then valley).


Step 2:
Add adhesive to the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section of the large piece of cardstock, facing up.  Add the 4 1/4" cardstock square to the card base,  lining up the top of the square with the top of the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section.
This will create the "easel" in your easel card!


Step 3:
Decorate the inside of your card, being sure to add an extra layer or embellishment towards the bottom to help your card stand.


Ingredients: Stamps: Whimsie Doodles {Missy's Therapy}, Unity {KOTM sentiment}; Cardstock: SU! {Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise}; DP: Paper Pizzaz; Accessories: Mark's Finest Papers Ribbon, Stickles (Thanks Suzanne!), Making Memories pin and 3D dots.
