Tutorial - How to make an Easel Card by Lu Lucker

Its DT  Lu here and I have a Tutorial on how to make an easel card with cascading flowers.

To start with you need a digi image (I recommend TCP Esty shop to go get one!)

Get that coloured up and go choose some matching papers or card stock.  On this occasion I wanted to use papers for decorative purposes, so I cut 3 of the same shapes out on plain card and then cut another 2 design papers in the same shape.  Glue the papers to the card stock.
Score the plain piece as shown, half way and about 1cm from the top, then fold.

Glue across the 1cm part and stick down on one of your patterned shapes.  Glue again in the larger space and stick your last patterned shape ontop.

It should now freely move and look like this.

Now for the fun parts, stick your image to the card and start to embellish.  I decide roughly where I would like the card to open to and glue the flowers in place. 

I like to use the flowers on the base as an anchor and position the flowers on the topper to slot in and create either a cascade of flowers or bunches.

Embellish to finish to your taste.
