Easel Card Tutorial

Hi there here is how I complete an easel card, I hope this helps.

First I cut a 5x5 piece of cardstock for the front of the card

Next you need to cut a 10x5 piece for the base and scor it at 2 1/2 and 5
add some patterned paper and sentiment (popped up) to the large part of the base

Decorated the 5x5 piece as it is the front of the card and stick to the end piece of the base. the popped up sentiment will keep the front in place

Very easy to do, I hope this helps and I would love to see your easel card You still have time to enter Humble Pie's Use only one embellishment

This card is perfect for Kaboodles fancy Folds
