BSS-Monday Challenge-Round Easel Card

Good Monday morning and welcome in to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge. Today's challenge is to make a round easel card. It is the same principal as a square easel card.

2. After you have your circles cut out,(see #1 below) you fold the front of the card from the bottom to the fold at the top in half as shown. Put adhesive on the flap and place the extra circle which will become the front of your card on top of the flap, lining up the circle with the bottom one. Decorate the card as you wish and remember, you have to have something on the inside that is raised, I cut out the kite on the inside and raised it up to hold the card open.

1. You will need to cut a circle from a folded piece of cardstock. I used a five inch circle which I traced onto my cardstock making sure to leave an uncut space on the fold to form the card. You will also need a second circle of the same size. You can cut these with your nestabilities or sizzix if you have them. If you trace the circles, cut around the edge with decorative scissors so you don't have to be perfect with the cutting.

This is a pretty easy card to put together and something a little different. You can make any number of shapes, using your nestibilities or cricut or sizzix to cut out shapes.

The stamped image on my card is by Flower Soft. Flowers are by prima. I distressed the edges of the main image and used distress ink.

Hope you have time to try this, makes something a little different.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Monday. Until tomorrow........................
