Today I am sharing with you an Easel Card.

Starting with a piece of cardstock 6" x 12", place across the Scor-pal and score at the 6" mark.

Using the Grand Nestabilities Scalloped Circles (3rd from the smallest), lay on top of the folded card, allowing the top edge to be clear of the cutting edge. This creates the edge that keeps the card as one piece.

Once the card has been cut, open it and place on the Scor-pal again, and score at the 8 3/4" mark.

Fold on this mark and add Scor-tape to the bottom areas as shown. Cut another single layer scallopped circle with the same die. This will be used for the top of the card.

Refold the card and lay flat. Align the single layer on top, matching the scalloped edges. This creates the Easel effect.

To finish my card, I cut 2 circles from light blue cardstock and one smaller circle from white. On the white circle I stamped clouds with Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink, then lightly sponged Robin's Egg Pigment Ink about the panel. I stamped, colored and cut out my Magnolia images and placed them on this piece. The little fisherman ponders while fishing in the stream. Then I used Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink around the edge of the panel.

The Magnolia Ink sentiment was stamped with Chestnut Roan, then cut and mounted on blue cardstock. This was added across the center of my card with foam dots. This gives the card it's resting place so that it stands up.

Once I was done, I spritzed Ginger ale Smooch Spritz on the card. It's a little hard to see, but it gives a nice sparkly finish to the card.

Please continue along the hop, stopping at each designer's blog for some great inspiration!

    that sweet little guy takes me waaaaaaaaaay back a hundred years or so ... Once upon a time I so wanted to go fishing that I literally bought minnows, toted them in a bucket on my bicycle handlebars, and often spent a summer afternoon at a nearby creek. Fact. I believe in this little guy for sure!
