I really like the look of the Easel card and only wish I had known how simple they are to make sooner. This card is designed to look like a present so it is a card and gift all in one, don’t you think?
To make this card, I used the Thoroughly Modern designer series paper featuring the Bermuda Bay colour. I love this paper because it can be used for so many cards and seasons. You can get a completely different look by using a Soft Suede paper one day and a Rose Red the next. If you don’t know which paper package to buy first, pick this one!
And the other great thing about an Easel Card is that it flattens to fit into an envelope for mailing. You may want to include directions on the card so the recipient will know how to stand it up.
Score 4” x 8” cardstock on the long edge at 2” and 4”.
Fold as shown.
Glue cardstock and greeting to bottom square of easel using dimensional to add height to greeting.
Adhere finished 4” x 4” square to easel placing adhesive only on bottom half.
Be sure the easel catches on the greeting piece allowing it to stay upright.
