Circular easel card

These are quick instructions how to make a circular easel card- I used bright spotty paper and simple embellishments just to show you how to make one . If you have already made an easel card then it is just the same process except with a circular card blank instead of the standard square shape.

I used the scalloped circle nestibility to create my card blank but you could use a CD or similar to trace round to create a circle card blank remembering to leave a couple of centimeters at the fold joined together so it is an actual card and not just two scalloped circles(can you tell that that has happened to me before...more than once!!)

lay it out as in above photo and taking the top circle score and fold in half - folding it in the way to the centre fold

Cut a single scalloped circle with nestie in the same card and attach this to the folded half of top circle so it now looks like the photo below when you stand it up

And now you are ready to decorate- you will need to put something raised on the bottom circle to stop your card collapsing and for my card I used the sentiment Some Bunny Loves You and used 3D foam so it acts as a stopper for the top of the card

Decorated my card with Marshmallow decoupage image and a butterfly from the Daisy and Dandelion range

The card stock is from DCWV

A simple but effective card- hope that is some help to those who asked how to make one but if instructions are not clear then let me know and I will try and help you
