A Twist on an Easel Card

054a

I Posted this card on my blog yesterday and had a few enquires on how it was made so this was a good excuse to put a little tutorial on here, it is very easy so I don’t think you will need any photos.

 

054

This is basically the base of a 5.1/2” square Easel card, to begin cut a white A 4 sheet to 5.1/2” x 11”. then score and fold at 5.1/2” and 8.1/4”  as you would for an easel card  .

 

Now you have your base, you can get on with building up your card, you will need a 5.3/8” square  and a rectangle measuring 5.3/8” x 2.5/8” from red card, and a 5.1/4” Square and 5.1/4” x 2.1/2” rectangle from your chosen backing paper, mat the backing paper onto the square and rectangle and attach the Square to the base of the card and the rectangle to the front of the mountain fold.

 

Colour and cut your image into a rectangle and mat onto red and white card leaving a thin edge of both colours around the image as shown in the card.  Attach the image to the mountain fold just in from the edge, with extra strong double sided tape.   You can then decorate to your hearts desire.

I have used a  Lili of the Valley Fairy here this one is Fairy Bouquet,

Hope you enjoyed this and if you use this little tutorial to make a card please leave a libnk so we can pop over and see it, we love looking at your cards.
