My very first Easel Card

Hello again, I'm so excited about this card as it was a first for me. Now I know why so many people have fallen in love with them.  I've certainly been converted!!!  I was surprised at how easy these easel cards are to make.  
I used A4 card stock and left the length at 29.5 cm but cut it down to 14.5 cm, next I used  my Eazi Score board ~ line 7 (A4 half fold) then line 4 (A4 gate fold). Only use line 4 on one side as this creates the back that your front will attach to.  Cut a square piece of card stock 14.5 cm x 14.5 cm, this then makes the front of your card.
You will need to raise your embellishment on the bottom part of your card to allow for the card to stand up. 
I had great fun making this card and will be making a few more in the not so distance future!!
