Easel Card

DSCF5554

I haven't done a technique challenge at SCS for a while, but I kept seeing these intriguing cards around, so I thought I'd give it a shot.  This is EASY to do, but one of the those ones that you feel as if you need to include directions in the envelope for the recipient!!!  Anyway, since I have carpet installers coming today, here it is, quickly:

The button props up the "easel"; it then folds flat to mail, although with a double button, this one won't exactly be flat!!  The folded size is 4 1/4" but it is easily adaptable.  More details can be found here; the textured Real Red cardstock, DP, and the round embellishment are from the Christmas Jingle SB kit; images are from Season of Joy and the ribbon is from the mini catalog, Mistletoe.  Thanks for visiting today---hopefully I can stamp something this afternoon!

That is so fun, and it looks very easy. I may have to try one of those.
Hope the carpet install goes well.

LeAnne, your easel card came out fabulous!!! I just printed the instructions out last night, so I'll have to give it a try. I am sure it won't be as GORGEOUS as yours though. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
