Loving easel cards too

I've been seeing tons of easel cards in blogland lately, so I thought it was time I showed you mine. They look so cool standing up, yet are really easy to make, which is a major winner in my book.
This is the first one I made back in January (still catching up!). The flower image is from my friend Kellie's 'A Happy Heart' set, as I don't have it yet & I'm sure you've noted that my 'Raspberry Tart' DSP is getting another work out. The greeting is from the free 'Happy Moments' Sale-a-bration set. You can find a tutorial to make easel cards here on Splitcoast. If you want to make this cute square size (with a 10 x 10cm front), cut your card to 10cm x 30cm & score the long side at 10, 15 & 20cm. You can get 3 of these bases from a 12 inch piece of cardstock.

I'll be back to show you some more easel cards. Until then, thanks for visiting.
Inky wishes, Di
