Hello My Friends,
I was so excited when I found a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers on how to make an easel card, and just in time too because a friend from work is celebrating her birthday on Thursday. So, let me tell you all about how I made this darling card. I cut the base at 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", then I scored it at 4 1/4" and at 6 3/8". The second score is folded the opposite way. The top and inside cardstock are both 4 1/4". The top 4 1/4" piece of cardstock is adhered to the score folded the opposite way. I used Martha Stewart's punches, a butterfly punch, a picket fence punch and a laurel leaf punch for borders. The leaf border is to stop the card base from closing. The tutorial said you could also use a brad. I cut out some tulips and a ladybug from A Walk In My Garden and did some doodling. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's stamp set, Everyday Occasions.
