Welcome to another SU! Only Challenge as we present you with a Technique Challenge.  For SUOC #79, the theme is your favorite technique and I decided to feature the Easel Card technique.  The design team is excited to see what favorite technique you'll be sharing.  Now, here is only ONE of many favorite techniques that I have…

SUOC #79 – Favorite Technique

Ornament Keepsakes Easel Card

Ornament Keepsake Easel CardI only learned how to do an easel card this past spring and although I haven't done many, I just love the technique.  Just think, the card is self supported and stands beautifully to showcase the work you've created.  For this card, I started with a standard measurement of 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock and cut it in 1/2 to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  I did not fold it in 1/2 but instead folded it so one side was approximately 1/2" shorter on one side.  Using the Scallop Square from the Square Framelits I cut the folded piece of card stock but made certain NOT to cut the fold then I folded in 1/2 one side of the folded Scallope Square card.  Next, I again used the Scallop Square framelit to make a second Cherry Cobbler scallop square which I attached to the bottom 1/2 of the second fold on the Scallop Square card.  

On the inside and front of the card, I added a layered square from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack layered on Crumb Cake card stock.  I also tied a ribbon on the inside using the Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon as the prop for the Easel card.  The stamped image on the front features the Prince of Peace Single Stamp (134811) which I stamped using Old Olive Classic Ink and cut out using the Deco Labels Collection Framelit.  The stamped Prince of Peach Single stamped image was layered using two Deco Labels Collection framelits cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The ornaments were stamped using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set.  

So, the Easel Card technique is one of my favorite techniques and I hope you enjoy the card I've created for you.  Now, don't forget to visit the SU!
