    Easel cards are easy to make and very addictive! They will surely put a smile on the recipient's face!
    Here's how you do them:

    DSCN8295.jpg
    Step 1. Trim a heavy cardstock to 5.5×5.5 and die cut a circle our of it. I'm using Heartfelt Creations Layered Scalloped Posy Die so I'll have to run it through my die cutting machine twice (top and bottom).

    Step 1a. Make sure that folded area is a little over the fold so that you don't right through it. You will nee this so that the card opens and closes.

    Step 2. This is what you will get after you finish your first base layer.

    Step 3. Die cut another separate single layer our of the same cardstock.

    Step 4. From the fold, mark 3 below it and fold it inwards. Add adhesive to this part and adhere the single layer on top.

    Step 5. This is how your easel card base will look like at this stage. Now you can decorate it however you want!

    Step 6. For my card, I die cut two circles our of coordinating colors measuring 4.5 and 4 and distressed their edges.

    Step 7. I layered them over my front side of the card and added a little trim around the smallest layer.

    Step 8. I then added a few layers in the centers and my stamped sentiment on top. I pop dotted the sentiment to make it stand out.

    Step 9. I added some blooms around the sentiment as shown.

    Step 10. Finally, I added some handmade leaves and some brown twine.

    Step 11. Now, so that your easel card can stand up, you need something for the inside. I added two stickers layers over each other and pop dotted to give some dimension.

    Here's the finished card:

    I hope you are not intimidated to try this card. It really is not that hard! Also, if you want, you can do a square version of this which requires less planning and looks just as gorgeous!

        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
