Stampin N Scrappin With Jodi

Today is my turn in the KLSNS Stampin N' Scrappin spotlight and I have an Easel Card tutorial to share with you.  These are really easy to make, but turn an ordinary card into an extraordinary card!

For my project I used the new CC Designs stamp Trevor from the Sugarplums Party set and Lime Rickey Paper from Basic Grey. 

To start off, you will need the following supplies:

1 piece of Cardstock 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
1 piece of Cardstock 11" x 5 1/2"
Scoring Tool
Strong Adhesive
Extra cardstock/designer paper for both the front and inside of the card 
Stamps, Ink and Embellishments

Take the 11" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock and score it at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
Fold the cardstock at the 5 1/2" score line first (folding the card in half).  Next fold the 2 3/4" score line in the opposite direction.  It should look like this when done:
Decorate the card front (the 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock) as well as the inside of the card.  For the inside, add an extra layer ~ in this case I used the wavy punched layer ~ an embellishment (buttons, brads, dew drops, flowers etc.) or even a sentiment placed on dimensionals in order for the front of the card to have something to rest against.

I paper pieced my image and shadowed some of it with copics.  The balloon was paper pieced and then covered in Crystal Effects.
Place adhesive on the  2 3/4" x 5 1/2" end flap as shown:
Line up the top of the card front with the top of the 2 3/4" x 5 1/2" section and adhere together.
Side View standing up:

And here is the finished card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope my project has inspired you to create an Easel card of your own.

Have a wonderful day!
