A pretty Easel Card I made for Mum this Mother's Day using pretty paper from My Mind's Eye along with pearls, lace, flowers and ribbon, giving it a little touch of vintage loveliness my Mum loves.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • plain color cardstock
  • design paper
  • flowers
  • pearls
  • lace
  • ribbon
  • glitter glue
  • sentiment stamps
  • double sided tape
  • Sewing machine

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Mum using Base Camp @ 2" or any of the other wonderful Cricut Font Cartridges.
I cut 10 of each letter to build height to give it a more dimensional look, keeping the main focus on Mum.
A great way to keep the letters aligned during the glueing stage, I used a couple of straight pins.
Easel Card. Cut a 12" x 12" piece of card stock in half giving you a 12" x 6" piece of cardstock.
Score and fold in half, this gives you a 6" x 6" card.
Then score just one side of the card down the middle, 3" in a mountain fold.
Cut another piece of cardstock 6" x 6". Embellish as you wish.
I stitched mine on the sewing machine, before attaching to the backing cardstock.
Then tape to the front of the card using double sided tape only on the lower half of the mountain fold.
This gives the card the appearance of an easel card.

Hope you enjoy making this as much as I did.
