Easel Birthday Card Using March Stamp of the Month

Pin It
This is a super fun and fairly easy birthday card that we made at my last workshop.  We used the March Stamp of the Month and the You Rock Level 2 Paper Packet along with some Blush Cardstock.  The You Rock papers are generally pretty bright and cheery, but try flipping them over and using the patterns on the back too. 

Score Olive CS at 4”, 5 1/2,” and 6 3/4.”  Fold cardstock so one end sticks up as the easel portion.  Crease with a bone folder so the easel will stay fairly well.  Add a strip of cardstock at the other end using foam tape.  The bottom of the easel portion should stick under that strip.  It folds flat for mailing!  Feel free to leave a comment or question.  Thanks!
