Magnolia Challenge - Easel Cards

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We've had beautiful sunny weather, still a little cool, but thank goodness our winters are mild. Happy Independance Day, to my USA Friends.

There's another challenge on over on the TOMIC Challenge blog and this week the challenge is my very favourite, Easel Cards. See Tutorial further down the page.

I've used Tilda holding Daffodil from the
Butterfly Dreams Collection &  the new Swirl Butterfly
& my fave border - Romantic Lace - Doohickey Dies

Hope you will stop by & see what the other Design Team Members have created for you, they are all amazing! Thanks for joining this wonderful challenge, I can't wait to see what you come up with & hope you will join us next week.


My finished card size is 15cm square (6")
supplies needed:
Cardstock 30cm x 15cm (12"x6")
Cardstock -15cm x 15cm (6"x6")
score tool/scor pal
Scor Tape/Red Tape or strong adhesive

Easel Card 15cm square cut 30cm x15cm piece of cardstock - score at 15cm & 7.5cm (6" & 3") vertically - valley fold both score lines.

Embellish card front - attach to card base, I find it easier to close the card, sticking the front to the closed card, it's easier to line up. To hold the card in place, you need to add a button, pop dot or some sort of dimension for the card to catch on to keep it from closing.

They are a lot easier to make than you might think and they come with a warning, they are very addictive. Easel cards can be made in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
To resize all you need to remember is score your card in half and then in half again.
Example of sizes: 12.5cm (5") square
Cardstock 25cm (10") x 12.5cm (5") - score at 12.5 (5") & 6.25cm (2.5")
