Sideways Easel Card Tutorial

I Love making Easel Cards! Recently I learnt how to make a Sideways Easel Card. I was asked how to make it so here you go!

You will need:
8x8 inch Card
An extra piece of white card stock
Scoreboard or Trimmer
Bone folder
To decorate:
Pattern paper
Image (Daisy Doodles!)
Edge punch

1. Take a 8 x 8 inch card. Open up as portrait, shown below

2. Lay the card in the paper trimmer, the top section of the card and score diagonally from the top left corner to bottom right, .
3. Use the bone folder to make the crease. Put the card to one side.
4. Take the extra piece of card stock and cut to 8 x 8 Inch square.
5. I always Layer up with the matts before assembling my card. So put all your layers on to the base card and on to the front piece you have just cut.
6. Make sure that when you make your "buffer" you place it at a diagonal as shown above.
7. Add your image and embellishments as shown above.
8. Attach the 8 x 8 inch section to the folded card, as shown.

That's it!! Hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and thank you for looking.
