DOUBLE Easel Cards - Super EASY!!!

I love easel cards...but...I love Love LOVE DOUBLE easel cards!!!  They are so easy for beginners that don't have many tools...AND...there are so many possibilities for advanced cardmakers, like using dies and tons of embellishments! 

CLICK HERE to watch my tutorial on making these cards!

Here are a couple examples.

For beginners, this one can be made without a score board or dies.  Yes, I did use stitched dies to cut the oval and the tiny heart....but you can use other things like a button or embellishment of some sort in place of the heart (or any shape).  And in place of the oval with a stamped and colored image you can use a pre-colored image and cut any shape you want.  I used my Anne Of Green Gables stamp and colored it with colored pencils.  I also added some flowers....I thought they were really the perfect touch.

This one might be for the more advanced cardmaker.  I used heart shaped dies and one of my favorite Gorjuss Girl stamps.  I colored the image with colored pencils.  I used my favorite colors...PINK & GREEN.  In my video I show how to do partial die cutting to make shaped cards.
