Good Morning Ladies,
It's that time of the week again where I challenge you to try something new or different. This week there is no specific 'sketch'. I wanted to go back to the card fold theme, so I thought that this week we could all try to make an.......
Easel Card, it can be any shape and size you choose, for anyone that hasn't made one before I have done a very simple tutorial to give you the idea.
Take your base card
Score and fold top part in half
(Across the card)
Apply adhesive to the lower section of the
Then add a piece of card exactly same size as your
Original base card. This forms the area for you
You will need to add something at the front of the
Base card to act as a 'stopper' for the folded top section.
I have taken a side view so you compare.
This is a rough sketch for a round Easel card
It works exactly the same way as any other shape.
I hope you enjoy the challenge, if you are unsure of anything please just ask and I will explain further. Most of all I want you to have fun. I am going to have a go at a Hexagonal Easel card.
Now after reading your comments I have decided on a new twist to sharing your cards on Sundays.... I am going to just share the card with No Names under them, I will number them instead, then either later in the post of later in the day I will post the list of which card belongs to who!! What do you think?
Elaine and Tracy, please feel free to join in our challenge, it's not taken too seriously, it's a good mojo booster too! Just email me a photo of your card to
