Sunday Share...TUTORIAL!

So today as promised...I have a photo tutorial for you on how to create an {EASEL CARD} and it looks harder than it is!
This is a side view.
Start with a base color of CS and cut it @ 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".
Cut in the same base color of CS another piece 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" (MY PINK NOTE MEASURMENTS ARE WRONG!).
Then score it @ 5 1/2" (half of the card) & 2 11/16" (which is one side in half again)

Put Red Sticky Tape on your flap.
Adhere your 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece where the sticky strip is.
Cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4" x 3 3/4".
Cut a second piece of Whisper White CS 5" x 3 3/4".
Then decorate and adhere those pieces to the front of your card parts.
Front View.
Close up of the embellishments that keep the {EASEL CARD} opened. You have to have some sort of embellishment that will hold the upper easel part in place.
More embellishment close up's.
This is a picture of the card opened up. The GREAT thing about this that it will fold up and fit into a regular card sized envelope:)
I hope you'll go and try one of these fantastic {EASEL CARDS}...because they are really fun to make.
