Long Style Easel Card Tutorial by Gail Scott - Feb 23, 2016

Supplies:
Designer Cardstock for base - cut @ 5 1/2"  x 6 1/4"
Plain Cardstock for mat  cut @ 3" x 5 3/8 "
Recycled cardboard - 2 pieces glued together - cut  each @ 1 7/8" x 5 1/2"
Circle Die for stamped image [other shapes can be used]
Stamp & Ink
Coloring medium of your choice for image
Embellishments of your choice

Instructions:
Cut the card base 6 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches










Lay the 6 1/4 inch side at the top of the scoring tool - score at
1 1/2 " and 3 1/4 " - burnish the score lines










The scored section shown to the right of the card base in this photo, is where the Plain cardstock and recycled cardboard pieces will be glued down
 














Cut a piece of Plain cardstock 3" x 5 3/8 " to be used at the mat 







Cut two piece of Recycled Cardboard 1 7/8 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches long and glue together - one on top of the other

 










Glue the Plain cardstock on the mat area first and then glue the recycled two layered cardboard piece on top - I glued the recycled cardstock 3/8 inches from the edge of the card as show in this photo 











 After gluing the mat and recycled cardboard your card should look like this











Stamp your image on white cardstock - I am using MFPSS Lion image with Rangers Black Archival Ink .  Color the image with the medium of your choice - I used Spectrum Noir Markers - Chalk - and I distressed around the edges with brown ink












Cut your image with a Spellbinders Circle die or any die shape of your choice









Here is my image colored and die cut













Measure where you want your image to be placed on the Front Panel of the card -  I placed my image on the top panel and drew a pencil line so I knew where I had to place my score tape - the Score tape will be positioned on the lower part of the image only. 













Score tape has been added on the back of the image in the lower section as shown in this photo of the back of my image - remove the protective tap from the score tapeand glue to the Front panel of the card











Your card should look like this after the image is glued to the front panel








Here is a front view with the card standing up and the front panel behind the cardboard










Here is a side view


Please note - sometimes I find Easel type cards do not always standing upright - I have found if I lay the top part of the card flat and then insert the top panel behind the cardboard it will work again - another trick is to add buttons on the recycled cardstock card base like I did in my finished card to give extra support.

Embellish your card as desired. The top panel will fold flat and the card will fit inside a size A2 envelope for mailing.
