Easel Cards

Card class day is always a fun day of chatting and laughing and crafting and eating. Lol! We even had some interesting foods today - dukkha and flavoured oils with breads, a new type of dip with crackers, and homemade raspberry muffins. Yum! Everyone brings something to eat when we get together to make our cards.

Today I had a request to learn how to make easel cards. They are easy cards to make, once you know the trick.  Start with a normal sized card, then fold the front inward at the mid point. Attach another flat piece of cardstock the same size as the card front to the bottom of the fold. Add a 'stopper' inside the card to hold your easel up, and voila! You have an easel card. Here are some instructions in pictures for you as well.

We started with a humourous card using the Owl Builder punch:

 Then we switched the mood and made a pretty card with the Labels Collection Framelits:

You can see all the products I used plus some more of these cards made by class attendees too at my Facebook page

Can't wait till June 17th when we get together again :)
