Father’s Day Easel Card

Tell Dad that he is just as important as Mom with this Easel Card made just for him.  My father died a little bit ago and I wish I could send this to him.

What you need:

      • Very heavy cardstock for the base (Blue)
      • Scraps of cardstock (lt blue, white, grey, black)
      • liquid glue
      • tape glue (optional)
      • Download file
      • Foam tape

This is fairly easy one.  Change the colors to match your personality.  I used blue.  Your imagination is your only limit.

Cut everything out.  Save the little tool bits for a later project.  They make nice shaker parts for a shaker card. The letters look best with the darker color on the bottom.  I tried it the other way at first.  It looked funny. 

I put all the little parts on one mat by combining mats.

First, Re-create the fold lines to make sure they work properly.

Glue all the letters together.  Be careful.  There are two different sizes of some of the letters.  Make sure you get the right sizes put together.  Also make sure you don’t get the letters turned upside down.  It is very easy to do.  You can see on my card I got some of the As backwards. It isn’t something you notice right off, unless your looking.  Glue them to the circle.

Next glue the circle to the half circle on the base card.  This is your easel.

Stick the tool piece on with foam tape so that it sits a little higher than the rest of the card.  This is your catch for the easel.

The card fold flat to ship.

Your card is done.  Enjoy!
