easel cards

I have been making easel cards lately as they are quite quick to do.

Take a card blank and cut another piece of the card the same size as the front of the card blank.you can create any size of easel card as long   as you follow that first. To make this easel card start with an 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch sqaure piece of card stock and 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 rectangle piece of card stock for the base pieces of the card. The larger pieces get scored at 4 1/2 and 2 1/8 fold large piece of card stock as shown in photo.

run adhesive along the top and bottom of the panel adhere the 4 1/2 x 4 1/2  card stock square to the panel lining up bottom and side edges you are now ready to decorate. make sure when decorating you put something in the middle of the bottom card stock so the top panel stays upright.
