Easel Cards

I am going to be running some card making classes for Adrienne at the Scrappin' Patch over the next few months, so I thought it would be nice to put up some pictures of the sort of cards we will be making.

The first class will focus on easel cards, starting with a simple easel card, similar to this one.

These two cards are made using Nestabilities Labels dies and Cuttlebug folders.

The shape of these cards makes them look really special.

The final example is a Twisted Easel card. This one was made for a card swap with a white on white theme, but it looks very effective in other tomes as well.

I used Tim Holtz Tattered florals die for the flower and the Elegant Flourishes die for the flourish. The text is a cuttlebug folder and I used the Swiss Dots folder to emboss the flower.

I hope the class enjoy making these cards. I also plan to do some classes on cards made with fancy folds, tri-shutter cards and 6-fold cards.
