These three cards illustrate three different orientations or sizes as well as three different ideas for creating the easel.
The first one is a vertical A2 card with the fold at the top. A layered sentiment on pop dots creates the easel.
This one is a horizontal A2 card with the fold at the top. The clouds were masked with torn scrap paper and the sky stippled with Distress Ink. The easel is formed with a strip of green cardstock - the "grass" is cut with my new fringe scissors (see a previous post about these) and folded up to provide a lip to hold the card when it is displayed.
And the last one (excuse the pink picture - these are white cardstock pieces - have no idea why this photo came out this color!) is a 5" square, top-folded card which has a button for the easel. The tulip was stamped with a watercolor technique - waterbased markers were used to color directly on the stamp and then lightly misted with water prior to stamping. It's an easy way to get a beautiful watercolor look.
