First Easel Card

Hello everyone!  I hope you all have had a relaxing Saturday.  Mine has been pretty lazy but sometimes that is exactly what is needed.  I did play a bit this evening and created my first easel card.  For the card I cut a piece of paper 41/4" by 8 1/2".  I then scored the paper at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8".  The two score lines are then folded in opposite directions and a 4 1/4" by 4 1/4" piece of paper is attached to the outer scored piece.  This is what the card looks like propped up as an easel:

This is the card folded down:

Celebrate The Occasion - Challenge #26
Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge Me Monday #73

These are so easy and so fun to make.  I see more of these in my future.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Materials Used:

Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge
Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders
Twine from The Twinery
Sentiment: My Creative Time Wow! So Many Candles
