To begin, I cut the bases of my easels using ivory cardstock in a medium weight.

5 1/2" x 11 1/2" - Cut two

Place on scoring board and score at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", and 11. The last 1/2" is used to adhere the pocket.

For the pocket cut ivory cardstock 3" X 6 1/2" and score on both sides at 1/2". The 1/2" on each side will be the gussets which will adhere to the sides of the base. Repeat this for second card or as many cards as you are creating.

For the covers I cut two 51/2" X 5 1/2" from ivory cardstock.

*Note* - These will adhere to the bottom front 2 3/4" portion of the folded base.

 Cuts for mattes and decorative papers

*Note* This cut guide is done per the way I decorated my cards using 2 mattes on my card fronts and pockets. This guide can be adjusted to your preferences.

Matte 1 - 2 7/8" X 5 3/8'
Matte 2 - 2 3/4" X 5 1/4"
Decorative paper - 2 5/8" X 5 1/8"

For the inserted tags I have used the Square Tags & Clocks die to cut the decorative pieces and adhered them to Graphic 45 Square Tags in kraft. I have also used the metal paper charm clips leaf charms to add a hanging embellishment to my tags.

All of my papers have been edged with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.

Such a beautiful collection to create with!! I have used flowers, chipboards, stickers, and fussy cuts to embellish mine.
