  1. Follow General Directions for easel card.  The base for this card is 4.25" x 8.50" and was done in the Pewter Sky.  Score this piece of card stock at 4.25" and 6.375".  Fold on all score lines.  Fold the card in half and then fold the second score line opposite the first score line.my cards 001
  2. Cut a piece of cardstock 4.25" x 4.25" and set aside.  Put the 4.25" x 8.5" cardstock on the table with the 4.25" side down.  Apply Scor-Tape to the 2.125" x 4.25" section of the cardstock that is facing up.  Remove the tape liner and adhere the 4.25" cardstock square to the card base.  Line up the top of the square with the top of the 2.125" x 4.25" piece.  This makes the easel card base.my cards 002
  3. The main image is 3.75" x 3.75" and is stamped on glossy cardstock.  I used the Archival Ink because it is waterproof.  I used the distress inks and the colorbox stylus with foam tips to put the color down.my cards 006  The geese wings were colored with marker.  This piece was mounted on a piece of Not Quite Navy that measures 4.0" x 4.0".  Attach mounted glossy image to the 4.25" x 4.25" piece of the easel base.my cards 005
  4. I cut a border and placed it at the bottom of the base piece.  I also stamped the sentiment on the Pewter Sky card stock and punched it out.  I applied a pop dot to the tag and centered it and attached it to the border.  This catches the card and allows it to stand up.
