Easel Birthday Card

A Child's Year has this sentiment on it.  I cut it out at  2 5/8" to fit onto an A2 sized card and added some dots onto the letters with some old Martha Stewart markers I ran across the other day when I was re-arranging some things.   I don't like these markers because they take longer to dry than Stickles! LOL!


The paper is from Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza stack from Hobby Lobby and I think the brads I used were picked up at the Dollar Tree.  The sentiment stamp is from SU.

I've often wondered, when making an easel card, if the recipient will know how to display it.  There's a good printable diagram showing how it's supposed to work available online.  The link I found to it is on the Splitcoast Stampers website or you can access it here:

I printed the diagram out and am including one inside each of the cards.

Cute sentiment. I also wonder if they will "get" how the card works.

Cute card! I have also wondered about that. I never make them if I am not going to be there to show the person how to do it!!

I'm with you. I find myself trying to explain what they're supposed to do with it, but then feel like I'm treating them like they're not smart enough to figure it out on their own.

Oh well, I still LOVE easel cards, and this one is a great example.
