A Fun Easel Card!

Hello The Rubber Cafe' fans!  Hope you are enjoying this month's Creative Cafe' Kit - How Sweet It Is - as much as I am!  The images are so fun and the papers are wonderful, too!  Today I want to share with you a fun easel card that fits into a regular A2 sized envelope.  I really love easel cards and thought this was very clever!



It is very simple to make this style of easel card.  Just cut the kraft cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 score at 4 1/4" and fold.  Then your will need a paper trimmer and paper scorer.  Score the top half of the card at 1 1/4" from each end.  It should look like this.......

Adhere each of these piece down to the base of the cardstock.  Then you will fold the middle piece in half and that will form your easel!



I added white cardstock and some of the Melissa Frances patterned paper to each side pieces and some more patterned paper to the easel.  I cut/embossed a decorative labels eight from the pink metallic cardstock and cut it to fit behind a Labels Eight die cut.  I stamped the card image onto the Labels Eight die cut and colored it in with Copic markers.  I added a pearl and some You're So Fine Diamond Clear Cool Highlight glitter to the flowers on my cake!  Here are a few more close-ups!


I stamped the sentiment onto a Ribbon Tags Trio die using Tuxedo Memento Black ink and added the pearls.  Pop the ribbon tag up onto some 3d foam squares to make the easel part of the card!   I tied the pink seam binding into a bow to complete the card!
