Taking Pictures Easel Card Tutorial

Good morning - it's Helen here with a tutorial to shown you how to make this card.  Its's variation on a traditional easel card and is very easy to make.

I've used the very cute 'Taking Pictures' stamp which is here in the Crafty Sentiments Designs shop.

And here's what you need to do:

1. Stamp the 'Taking Pictures' stamp on to white card and trim to 10cm by 5cm.  Colour the image with your choice of colouring medium and then mat on to dark brown paper measuring 10.5cm by 5.5cm and a piece of kraft card measuring 11cm by 6cm as shown in the photo above.

2, Open out a 12cm card blank and cut from the outside of the card to the fold at 4cm and 8cm - this will split half of the card in to three pieces.  Trim along the card fold to give the shape shown in the photo above.

3. Fold the remaining panel in half and score well to form the easel part of the card as shown in the photo above

4. Decorate the base of the card as shown in the photo below.  If you're making the card for someone special, you can use a map which relates to somewhere they live

6. Stamp your sentiment on to white card, trim and then mat on to dark brown and kraft card again.  Attach this to be base of the card using foam pads - this is the 'stopper' for your card.  Attach the image panel to the front of the folded 'easel' part ensuring the image is central on the card. I've added some black gems to the image panel to finish the card.

And here's how your finished card will look.

I hope you've enjoyed my tutorial. Have a wonderful weekend!
