I was working on some class cards and decided to do some Easel cards. All the stuff I was finding on the net was for square cards. I like to make most of my cards in A2 size (5 1/2" x 4
1/4") so I made one that size also. The sample I am showing is the A2 size card. I used the stamp set Sunday Afternoon from TAC. The punched flower is to hold the Easel Card in place when open. The printed paper is some that I had laying around. It was "springy" looking and I am so tired of Winter so it was the pick of the day. I colored the image with my new Copic markers. I'm not used to using markers but thought it turned out okay. I really need the lighter set of markers so I can do some shading...my colors tend to be a little darker.
This is a picture showing the front of the card when it is closed. It wouldn't close all the way on the little easel because of the flower on the inside but it would close well enough to fit in an envelope.
I hope you enjoy the card and get some time to make some yourself.

I got the idea of this box from the March 2010 Scrap & Stamp Magazine. I did a little tweaking on the directions and made it my own. It was a fun project but I got a little carried away. There is 62 pieces of paper on this box counting the punched pieces. We did it in class a couple of weeks ago and everyone loved it. I hope you enjoy it also.
