I’ve been seeing quite a few of these Easel cards of late and have wanted to try one for some time now so took the opportunity while stamping with the lovely Kerri Hunter who came to visit from Victoria this past week.
I’m not sure why but when I see a new style of card (well new to me) I always think how nice they are and that I’d like to make one but they are probably fiddly or too involved.
I was pleasantly surprised when I found out just how easy these cards really are so dont be surprised if you see a few more in the future!
This card on the left is the front view and I’ve gone and used the ever faithful Snow Swirled stamp set.Â I’m not really a ‘snow’ or ‘cold’ Christmas card person but I really do love working with snowflakes.
The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Close to Cocoa and were actually inspired by some cards Kerri had shared on her blog. I’ve also added a few white little snowflakes on the base of the card.
Here is a side view of the card so you can see how it stands up and why its called an Easel Card.
To make the card stand up you simply use a brad as a point to where to lay the bottom of the card.
You can actually mail this card flat as you can see by this last photo.
These cards are super easy to make and I’d love to show you how – contact me today to book your workshop.
