Inspiration Post: Easel Cards

Hello ACLP Friends!! It's Sheri here today to share a little inspiration with you!! One of my favorite types of cards to make are Easel Cards. They are super easy to make once you learn the basic construction of the card. The dimensions can be changed to create any size card you like. To get you started I thought I would show you a 5" x 5" Square Card.

Supplies Needed:

Scor-Pal/Scor-Buddy (or any Scor Tool)
Scor-Tape (Redline or other strong Adhesive)
1-5" x 10" Piece of Card Stock
1-5" x 5" Piece of Card Stock
Other: Stamps, Decorative Paper, & Embellishments to complete card.

Step 1: Scor the 5" x 10" piece of card stock at the 5" and 7 1/2".

Step 2:

Take your scor tool and fold all scor lines to create this shape.

Step 3:

Place Scor-Tape to the 2 1/2" x 5" section of the card stock that is facing up.

Step 4:
Attach the 5"x 5" piece of Card Stock to Scor-tape.

Step 5:

Here's your complete Easel card base. Now you can decorate the front & inside of the card. You will need to add an embellishment or an extra layer to the inside in order for the Easel to stand up by itself.

Here's my completed card:

Recipe items found in the DCRU store:
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White CS, Cupid DP Collection (Pink Paislee's); Stamps: Emma Puddle Jumper (Lori Boyd/Claudia & Co), Sentiment (A Muse); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tools: Copics, Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Paper Piercer; Other: Twine, Pearls

Hope you were inspired to try this fun technique!!

Happy Stamping!!
