PTTC21 Easel Card

It's Tuesday, and it's time to PARTY!! Our challenge this week at Party Time Tuesdays is to make an easel card. I hadn't made one in a while, so this was a treat. I used my DeLovely paper by Cosmo Cricket for the ever-classic pink and black combination. Isn't it a great combo? I LOVE black satin ribbon! We'd love to see your easel cards, so check out this tutorial HERE to make one. Then, upload your creation at Party Time Tuesdays and share it with the world.

Tip:
The tutorial is for a 4 1/4 inch card. My card is 5 1/2 inch square, so cut your main piece of cardstock--5 1/2 x 11 inches. From there, score on the 5 1/2 (down the middle) and score 2 3/4 from the other end. This will work perfectly, although you may have to maneuver a little to get the 2 3/4. I usually measure and score the line from there on my Scor Pal.

Card Details:
Stamps: None
Paper: DeLovely by Cosmo Cricket; Melon Mambo
and Basic Black by Stampin' Up
Ink: None
Accessories: Cricut; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Nestabilities
(Scrapmart exclusive); SU black satin ribbon; black pearls
