A Quick&Speedy How-To

How-To : Easel Card
If I had to choose a favourite style of card, Easel would be my reason, well, it looks more labour intensive than what it actually is.

Supplies: 12"x12" sheet of Cardstock, Cutter, Scoring Tool

Cut your 12"x12" sheet of Cardstock in half
You should now have 2 pieces measuring 6"x12"
Take ONE of the 6"x12" pieces and cut it in half
{You should now have 3 pieces; 1 at 6"x12" and 2 at 6"x6" - you can set one of the 6"x6" pieces aside}
Take the 6"x12" piece and score a fold line at 6"
Score another fold line on the same piece of cardstock again at 3"
{in the middle of your first score line and the edge of the cardstock}
Fold and crease well along the score lines
Now, the only thing left to do is create the face {1-6"x6" piece} of your card in whichever manner you please. When finished attach the face of your card to the easel {6"x12" scored piece} by adding adhesive from the raw edge to the folded edge of the 3" piece {right side of fold pictured above}.  Then decorate the bottom part of the easel {un-scored side of 6"x12"}...and there you have it! Hopefully I have explained the steps okay, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask - and I will do my best to answer!

My plan is to get this card finished over the weekend using my new
Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps!
Best of Luck & Happy Scrapping!
