To make an easel card, you need a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. The majority of my paper collection is 8.5 x 11 because I am not a scrapbooker, and the only 12 x 12 sheet I had that was sturdy enough to be a card base was a bold yellow color, which you'll see in the pictures below. I also just bought a new birthday/party clear stamp set on clearance at Michael's for only $2.50 (I couldn't pass it up!) so I turned my easel card into a party invitation. The card itself is only 4 x 4 inches, which made it even more of a challenge to make since I'm used to creating larger cards.
Front view of the card. I left some space at the bottom for an extra message to be written if necessary.
Side view of the card. It doesn't look much like an easel card from the front, but from the side view you can definitely tell!
What I Used To Make The Card:
- Yellow, white and green cardstock paper
- Blue ink to distress edges
- Birthday/party clear stamp set in blank ink
- Cuttlebug with balloon die cuts
- Liquid adhesive and glue dots
I'm off to do some laundry and get a head start on upcoming challenges. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your week! :)
