Stamp Class Sneak Peek

Tonight I'm hosting another technique stamp class, and the theme tonight is shake it up sizes.  Each card we are making are different sizes than the traditional 1/4 sheet size card.  

Below is a sneak-peek of one of the cards we'll be making.  It's an easel card, and while it closes to the same size as a 1/4 sheet card, it's full of surprises for the recipient.

You start with a 11'x4-1/4" piece of card stock.  Score it along the 11" side at 5-1/2" & 8-1/4".  You'll also need a piece of card stock for the front of the card that is cut at 4-1/4"x5-1/2".  

Here is a side-view of the finished card.  The 11"x4-1/4" piece is folded along the scored lines, and the short end is attached to the card front piece.  Decorate as desired.  Here I used some of the Everyday Enchantment DSP from the Sale-a-Bration brochure (it's only available through March 31st).  You need something to keep the card open in the easel position, and the button works out really well.  

The stamp set used is Everybunny from the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog.  It's such a cute stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by!
