Hello and welcome to the Easel Card Blog Hop! If you've hopped here from Jenny's blog - you are on the right track. Otherwise, so you don't miss any fun, you can start back at the beginning with Ashley's blog.
If you have never tried making on of these cards before - you should really try! They are fun to make and can serve many purposes. I'll show you how!
First, here is a link to the directions how to make easel cards. Click HERE.
We have a busy month of birthdays for August and I will definitely be in need of some cards.
Here is what the front looks like.
Then when you pop it up - the button keeps it in place like a built in stand.
Side shot -
The monkey on the cover was created by an svg file called Birthday Monkeys from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs of which I am a proud design team member for.
Another great idea is change up your measurements and make you cover a 4" x 6" or 5" x 7" . Then put a picture on the cover. Works great for Christmas cards and instead of hanging it from the wall or on the fridge, it can display nicely on your table for the season. Another thought is putting your child's school picture on there! Endless possibilities!
Hope you enjoyed my project and ideas! Be sure to hop on over to Jessica's blog for her fantastic project! If you get lost along the way here is the entire lineup.
