Slanted Easel card


Had a few request for the Slanted Easel card I made, these are just so simple but effective,  I am sure lots of you know how to make these anyway.




I have made this card to face the other way just so you can see how easy it is to ring the changes.


All you need to start is:

A Score Board

Double Sides Tape

A 5.1/2” square Base Card

A square of white card 5.1/2” square.

Your Image, backing papers and embellies




Now you need to score diagonally from corner to corner on the front of your card, use a score board to get a perfect fold, to make sure the corners line up I run a pencil down the scoring line I am going to use, it is much easier than doing it by eye, I think you can pick up the pencil line in the picture below





Fold along scored line and your card should look like this, ( when folding a scored line always make sure you go down the fold a couple of times with your bone folder this gives a really crisp fold).


Now add double sided tap[e down the triangle, on this picture I have only added it to 2 sides you would actually add it to all 3 sides.




Now add the 5.1/2” sq white card to the triangle.




Now its up to you to decorate as you wish.


On this blog I havent really explained how I decorate my cards from start to finish but if you feel that would be helpful leave me a comment.

Jacqui I have made a few of these now, but none anywhere near as gorgeous as yours! :) Fantastic image, perfect colouring, and beautiful decoration.
I love that edging you have done, is it a Martha Stewart Punch and if so which one? (I need it! lol.)
