Happy Valentine's Day

I've been requested to create a special Valentine's Day card from a special customer (COUGHsonCOUGH)! I decided to challenge myself and did my first easel card! LOVE how it turned out if I do say so myself! LOL!!

長男からのリクエスト: 特別なバレンタインデーカードを作てほしい。初めてのイーゼルカードを挑戦してみました!どうですか。。。上手く出来たと思います(\>0</)!

Be Mine by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: WorldWin Papers; Patterned Papers: Carta Bella (Devoted Collection); Stamp: JustRite PaperCraft (Antique Valentines Tags One stamp set); Ink: Clearsnap and Ranger Ink; Pearls: Want2Scrap; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Art (JBS4-356  Floral Ovals and JBE8-008 Classic Edges Two) and JustRite PaperCraft Custom Dies (JB-03990 Vintage Labels Two and JB-03775 Antique Tags One); Tools: Scor-Pal and ScraPerfect (Embellie Gellie); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOKING ADHESIVES By 3L (3D Foam Squares)

If you search online, you will find several tutorials on the easel card. I used SplitCoastStamper's (SCS) easel card tutorial.

You need a strip of 8½ x 4¼" cardstock and fold on the long side: 4¼" and 6⅜". Accordion fold the score lines and add a piece of 4¼" square cardstock on the 4¼" piece of the fold. Then embellish! Here's a close up of the bottom flap where the card rests on.

Have you tried an easel card? SO much fun!!

REMINDER: I have a Chicago area (Roselle IL) charity crop giveaway! Details and where to comment, visit Crop For A Cause Giveaway :) Deadline is Tues, Feb. 19th!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
