I have a tutorial up on the ScrapMuch? blog today and you know I always love to share them here too!
Today we will be making an easel card. Just a fun fold technique to jazz up your next card a little bit! I shared this card front with you on MOnday, today you will see how to create it.
|Start with a 4 x 8 inch piece of card stock and score at the centre point (4 inch) and then at the 6 inch mark. Of course, you can create whatever size of card that suits your needs, just score the card in half and score one half in half again.|
|The 4 inch piece is the interior of your card, go ahead and add patterned paper as you wish. You will see I kept my design fairly simple, using a subtle pattern ad the base so that I can write on it when I give it away.|
|You get a better idea of what I mean here, I also added a couple of layered die cut flowers to mine just for fun!|
|You get a better idea of how your card will sit in this photograph.|
|Now we are going to address the front. I am using another patterned paper to decorate the front of my card.|
|Just be sure to also crease / score this patterned paper so that your card sits properly.|
|Now you can add whatever image you desire to the front of your card. Or even a die cut.|
|And don't forget to glam it up... more flowers and some bling are what I went with for my card.|
|Here is a side view for you.|
|A little close up.|
|And here is a full picture of my card. It will sit flat in an envelope by unfolding the top / front of the card.|
