New style easel card

I belong to several craft forums and recently a member of one of them hasn't been posting for quite some time. So some of the members have got together and sent her hand made cards to try and cheer her up. I was watching Create & Craft the other day and Dawn Bibby was showing a new style easel card blank - so I had a go at making my own. You cut up both sides of the front of the easel and a little way down the back. Then make folds so the middle section sits back a little (a bit like a stepper card). Not sure I've described it very well and I forgot to take a piccy from the side!
The scene and lady are from Debbi Moore's Enchanted Christmas Cd and the blue backing paper is from Crafter's Companion A Touch of Christmas Cd. It's been finished off with some peel offs and card candi. I'm entering this card into the CD Sunday Blog Challenge as the theme this week is Enchantment.

  1. Hi Pamela. This kind of easel card looks, as you say, a bit like a stepper but not. I know how you love easel cards and thank you for including this lovely one in our challenge. I hope your forum friend is on the mend.
