Card Instructions   
1.     Cut Vanilla Bazzill 30.5cm x 16 (bone fold at the 16cm mark & then at the 23.5cm mark, this will leave 7cm over) this fold will create a easel. It will be short this will be covered in the next step.
2.     Cut Vanilla Bazzill 16cm x 16 cm, this will be adhered to the front flap of the easel card, so when folded your card will measure 16cm x 16cm.
3.     I have fussy cut flower sections and postcard sections from selected pieces of the Lemon Craft papers. Choose these before you start, but you will need to leave 3 sections 15cm x15cm for your main card pieces. I used the bottom left of the Music of the Soul, on the opposite spot side I have cut the remaining two pieces at 15cm x 15cm. Adhere these to the card sections.
4.     Using the white crackle texture paste, lightly cover your clock face chipboard. When dried lightly ink with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
5.     Lightly ink edges of your card, tags and chipboard using Distress Ink Vintage Photo
6.     Using your Xpress Copic Blending Card stamp your bold leaf stamp using your Memento Pistachio Ink and die cut. Stamp your Vintage Floret Flower on Vellum using white pigment ink and white embossing powder and heat set. When cool cut out your flowers with the matching Vintage Floret Die.
7.     Cut out two Elegant Swirl Dies using white Copic blending card. One will go under your flowers and leaves and the other will be trimmed to decorate the side of your Special For You chipboard panel.
8.     Using a Lemon Craft large tag trim to square off the end and choose a contrasting piece of cardstock and postcard and adhere your Special for you chipboard over the top with 1 vellum flower and some fussy cut small flowers.  Trim the elegant swirls to go on each end. Using 3d adhesive adhere this to the inside bottom edge of your card to create the ledge.
Assemble your card as pictured. Tip – Experiment with using 3d adhesive to highlight certain pieces, but you must use 3d adhesive on the Special for you sentiment to create a ledge for your easel to stand up.
I LIKE TO KEEP PACKAGING FROM GIFTBAGS TO BOXES EVEN PHONE PACKING, YOU CAN MAKE A BEAUTIFUL MATCHING PIECE TO GO WITH YOUR CARDS OR TO GIFTWRAP YOUR PRESENT. USE TISSUE PAPER INSIDE TO GIFT BOX YOUR CARD. THIS MAKES AN EXTRA SPECIAL GIFT.
