I just remembered this video that I managed to do this month and thought I should share it here on my blog.  I had so much fun putting this together.  So lovely to work with some older photos of my youngest daughter.

Friends Like You Easel Card

This is a really cute card that we have available as part of the Spectrum Noir Monthly Kit - Red pens.
I thought it would be fun to show you how you can make an easel card so you can make you own, with or without your stamps.  These cards are really fun and really easy.

You will need:
One 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock
One 4 1/4" square piece of cardstock (same as above cardstock)
One 3 3/4" x 1 1/2" coordinating cardstock
Scoreboard
Adhesive Tape

Optional: Stamps, inks

How To:

Score the 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8"


Prefold all score lines so your cardstock looks like this
Place cardstock on table with the 4 1/4" side down so it looks like this and add a couple of strips of adhesive tape.
Adhere the 4 1/4" square cardstock to the base of your card.  Line up the top of the square with the top of the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section.  This is what your card will look like from side one.
Adhere your 3 3/4" x 1 1/2" coordinating cardstock to the bottom of the inside of your card.  This will help to hold up the easel part of your card.
Now you can decorate the front of your card and add a sentiment to the inside of your card that will show when your card is standing up.

Come and join us for a fun morning of paper crafting.
Each child will complete two fabulous mini albums, one being a fun pop-up mini book and the other a nice mini book style album.
Your child will need to bring some photos, how many is up to them but at least five for each project would be great.  If they do not have photos that is ok too, as they can add photos later.
