Easel cards

I have seen plenty of examples of lovely EASEL CARDS online and wanted to make my own.  The idea would be quite neat for a calendar, a quote book or even a scrapbook page.  I like the way the main piece stands up so nicely.

To make these I cut a piece of A4 cardstock lenthwise. I took one half and scored this piece it at the A5 mark on the paper trimmer and scored again at approximately 7.5cm.  I then folded on the score lines to create a base with a triangle.  I then took the remaining piece of cardstock and cut it in half to create the card front.  The trick to these cards is to add an item such as a brad, button or raised cardstock to help hold the Easel in place

 

Here is the view from the side where it is easier to see the base and the triangle

I used the divine FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL STAMP SET as well as the matching URBAN OASIS Designer Series Paper

Here is a close up of the embossing on the flower and greeting
