Engineered Cards: An Easel Card

This is the last of the cards we'll be doing on Thursday night.  This is an Easel Card.  It becomes a self-standing display. This is another super simple card to make.  You never knew engineering was so easy!

If you came to the Stamp-a-Stack last weekend you'll recognize parts of this card.  I took a card we made and turned it into this Easel Card.  To make these cards you score the front face of the card at the half-way mark.  Then you need something with a little dimension on the inside for the card to be propped on. I used dimensionals under my paper pieces but you could use brads or buttons too. And you can change the angle of the displayed card by controlling where you put the dimension piece on the inside.

I made 2 samples, one horizontal and one vertical.  It works either way.  Again, this card is easy and impressive.  One more way to make your card recipients say "Wow"!
