An easel card using Stained Mosaic technique

Had the day off so made time to try out the Easel card to show off my Stained Mosaic Technique pieces. First I want to show you my stamp. I made it 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 with fun foam pieces.

I made it very simple as I experimented making the easel card. I'll show you how I made it. You can decorated and layer to make a real masterpiece.

I used a 12 x 12 piece of card stock. You can get 3 cards by cutting each 4" wide. So you will have a piece that is 4 x 12. Score at 4-6-and 8 and fold like this.

Turn it over and add adhesive to the first 2" section.

Push down on it to adhere to the first section.

Here is a side view of what it looks like.

You can us anything you want to be the stop for your easel. Layer, decorate the inside and experiment with what can hold up your easel.

Well it's cold here. I'm glad I didn't have to go to work this morning. Luckily we don't have the snow worries the rest of the country has.
