With Father’s Day right around the corner, I wanted a fun card that my kids could give to their dad. I chose to make this fun easel card, that props up to display the message. Here is how you can make one.
- Industrial Revolution by Quirky Twerp
- Trimmer, scissors, adhesive, ink, scoring tool
Step 1: Create a design 5″ x 10″ – you can either use digital paper for your base or use cardstock and cut it 5″ x 10″. You will also need to create a top and a stopper. The stopper will be used to prop your card up. For the top you need a 5″ x 5″ square, for the stopper 2.5″ x 5″. I added all my digital elements to the top and the stopper and then printed out my design.
Step 2: Cut out your pieces and score your basecard at 2.5″ and 5″
Step 3: You will now fold your scored lines and get your top and stopper ready to be adhered.
Step 4: I opted to ink the edges of my top and stopper cards then I adhered them to my basecard.
Step 5: To give the card the ability to stand, you will use a popdot for the stopper. You can also do this with a button, a flower, or a brad. Anything to give your top part something that “catches” it.
Lastly, this card will lay nice and flat so you can put it in an envelope. Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial. I enjoy making these cards as they are quick and easy to make.
