BSS-Monday Challenge - Variation on Easel Card



Hello, and hope you're having a good start to the week. Today's card is for the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge. It's a variation on an Easel Card. That is, the card is able to stand
on it's own for displaying. The basic card is 6x6 scored at 3" and 6". Fold the three inch score
in a mountain fold and the six inch score in a valley fold. (see second picture above) Decorate the back six inch panel with designer paper. Affix a 2-21/2 circle in the center with a brad close to the top. You need to leave enough of the half circle so your image can be tucked up under it to hold it in place. Decorate the front and affix your image. That's it. I used black cardstock, the designer paper is Graphic 45. The image is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado. The leaves are a cuddlebug die and matching folder. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them if you need a better look at something. If you have questions, you can email me at rsdrees@verizon.net. Hope you get a change to try this card. Have a great Monday. Until tomorrow.....................
