While I have been extremely busy the last few days, I did manage to find time to make a card.
I was busy working on over 200 cards for a friend of mine who has ovarian cancer. They wanted a project that the ladies could do while sitting and getting their chemo treatments. I offered to cut everything for the cards for these amazing women. My cricut sure was tired afterwards, 200 3inch ribbons, 200 1 inch ribbons, butterflies, and flowers along with the words and word window punch frame for the word windows. I hope they enjoy making them as much as I did doing all the work for them. They are finished and being shipped out asap after the storm. Hope everyone is safe during this storm Irene.
On to my card I made today.
1. You will need one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock.
2. Use a paper trimmer to make a card base of 4 1/4" x 8 1/2".
3. Fold the card base in half to create a 4 1/4" square card.
4. With the card closed and the fold on the left, score the card front from the bottom left corner of the card to the top right corner.
5. Fold the scored corner down to make the easel.
6. Embellish your card as desired. Just make sure the element on the front of your card is adhered to the bottom right portion of the card front and not the entire front. Use a brad, small flat embellishment (which I used in this picture), button, punched scallop or any other small accessory to prop the easel.
7. This card will also fold flat so you can put it in a square envelope.
This was super quick and makes a stunning card, hardest part is deciding how to embellish your front of the card.
