Here is a quick look at what an Easel Card looks like from the side...these are very fun and easy to construct. I used pretty printed papers from the Abbey Road paper collection (My Minds Eye) and used an Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug/Provocraft) on my card front. I lightly swiped over the embossed design with a soft yellow Chalk Ink Pad (aka cat eye/Colorbox). The "grass" is what is holding the card front in place...
Speaking of the "grass", let me introduce you to the newest addition to my scissor collection...Fringe Scissors (some call them Shredding Scissors)! They are fabulous for cutting fringe and they retail for about $10-12. You can find them at Michael's (Martha Stewart) and also at The Container Store. They are so easy to use...but I have to warn you...they do look a little scary! Four separate scissor blades all combined in one single pair of scissors...wow! I just love them!
