What fun it was creating this fun fold unique Easel Cards using the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Beautiful You.
At our Stamping Club Class this month the coloring technique used for her dress and hat was with an aqua painter and a Classic Ink Pad. Of course we just had to include Wink of Stella on top of the dress and hat.

To Create an Easel Card Tip:
- Use the same card base measuring 4-1/4” x 11”, just score at the 2-3/4” mark and then the normal 5-1/2” mark.
- One extra piece of card stock measuring 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” is what makes the card front an Easel
