Birthday Easel Card

When you need a card to really make an impact, one of the ways I have found to do this is to make a special Easel Card. Have you ever made one with a shaped front? I tried making one with a star shape I cut out myself and was so pleased with the result. You could use other shapes too of course but I wanted my hubby to feel as though he was a star this year :) so I chose the obvious shape for that! Lol! 

It was fun to make and you can make one like this to be much more elaborate. One day maybe I'll get round to making a more eleborate card, but masculine cards just don' lend themselves to lots of flowers and frills, do they. He he!
