I {heart} Hearts Easel Card

Today's project is an easel card, which is a fun way for the card recipient to display his or her card all by itself. You can find a wonderful tutorial, complete with measurements on Splitcoast. We made this card at last week's Valentine's Day stamp camp.

This card uses the I {heart} Hearts and Well Scripted sets from the Occasions Mini catalog. I combined Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry for a fun Valentine's Day color combo. Here is a view from the side:

The button holding the "easel" part of the card in place is clear, backed with a pieced of Razzleberry Lemonade dsp, which coordinates with the dsp on the top portion of the card. I love the bright, happy feel of this card! And don't forget - from now until February 28, when you purchase the I {heart} Hearts set, $2 will go to American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund. Visit my demo web site to find out more.

Thanks for stopping by today - things may be kind of quiet around here this week. I have one sick kiddo and another who seems to be coming down with the same thing. Sigh. Anyone else ready for spring? :) I'll post any projects that I complete, but it may take me longer than usual. Bye for now!
