Quick and Easy Easel Card Tutorial

October 24, 2017

I’ve made a quick and easy easel card tutorial for you today so you can make one for yourself.  It’s not hard at all and the finished product offers a bit of a WOW.


Oct '17 PP Easel card

You’ve got to try this easy easel card!

The easel card does require a whole-card-and-a-quarter from the October Kit.  Fear not.  You’ll be able to use the full front or back of the card as a layer for another card using a Whisper White card base.   Thus you’ll be getting two cards from one.

Since I’ve used up all of my supplies, you’ll have to use a bit of your imagination for construction of the easel card.

Easel Card Step 1-  8-1/1″ x 5-1/2″ card stock, scored at 4-1/4″ (fold on score line to form card base) and 2-1/8″ on the back side: fold on score line in same direction as card base.

1- Cutting/scoring card stock

Score card base for your easel card


Easel Card Step 2:

2- fold on score lines

Fold and crease on score lines; burnish (rub over folds) with a bone folder


Easel Card Step 3:

3- attach layer to flap

Attach a 2-1/8″ x 5-1/2″ layer to folded over flap


Easel Card Step 4:

4- attach stopper

Stamp a banner and create a slight larger banner to place under it. Attach to each other and then to the card with Dimensionals. This will be the ‘stopper’ for the folded over easel.


Easel Card Step 5:

5- attach decorative layer

Create a focal piece for your easel card’s message.


Easel Card Step 6:

6- apply adhesive to only half of layer

Be sure to leave the top half of the easel card layer free of glue so it will ‘float’ when the easel is in place.  Attach glued area to flap.


Easel Card Step 7:

7- card will lay flat in envelope

You can flatten your easel card to fit into a standard medium (A-2) envelope and your recipient will hopefully slide the easel in to place.


I obviously didn’t have any more of the October Paper Pumpkin kit supplies to create my easel card tutorial but this shows how one of these cards can be created from any type of card stock and decorative paper.  Try one today!  (and then consider sharing it with us in a comment.)
