In due time, all of my friends and family will be able to get a good look at the NEW Close To My Heart Fall and Winter Catalog, and it is AMAZING! But in the meantime, let me make your eyes twinkle with a sneak peak of the new products in action! You can use your fabulous CTMH Products that you already have, but be ready to want want want the new products!!

Easel Card

Supplies Needed:
4 1/4 x 8 1/2 Piece of Pear Cardstock Paper
Piece of White Cardstock 4x4
Piece of Hooligans Patterned Paper 4x4
Stamp Set
White Cardstock for Stamping
3 3/4 x 2 Lagoon Cardstock (For outside)
1 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Lagoon Cardstock (for inside)

Step One:
With your 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock flush the long way on your paper cutter or scoring system, score at 4 1/4 and 6 3/8. Crease your folds

Step two:
With the 4 1/4 side down, adhere your 4 1/4 seperate square so that it is completely matched up with your square as it is folded. only adhere it to the top tab.

Step Three
Decorate the inside by stamping on your 4 1/4 piece of white cardstock. Adhere.

Step Four:
Scallop the edges of your 4 1/4 x 1 1/2 piece of lagoon cardstock. adhere to the bottom. Let the flaps loose so that they will catch the easel part when it sits up.

Step Five:
Adhere your Hooligans 4" square paper to the top of the easel. Stamp your images on white cardstock and decorate. Find a good place to put your brads- Remember- in threes works best!
