C4E R#8 - Easel Card Tutorial

Hello everyone :)
I hope you have had a great week :) 
This weeks Recipe challenge has been posted HERE and this week we are asking you to make an easel card.
There are a few ways to make an easel card here is how I make mine.


You will need two pieces of cardstock - 6x12" and 6x6"

1. Fold the 6x12" cardstock in half to make a 6x6" card base. Open the card and fold the front in half towards the centre (spine) of the card.

2. Add adhesive to the card as shown and attach the 6x6" piece of cardstock so that the bottom is adhered to the card base and the top is free as shown below.

3. Your card should look like this

4. Decorate both the base and front of your card.
You will need to add something to the base for the top of the card to hold the top of the card upright this can be almost anything, chipboard, buttons, flowers or sentiments.

Here are a few I have made recently.

For this card I used a decorated scallop circle to support the card.

You can make any size or shape easel card. I used Nestibilities dies to create this one.

For this card I used a rosette on the base for the card top to sit behind.
