Easel Card with Post-It Notes

   Hello Everyone! I hope you are all doing well. The fall season is fast approaching and that means more craft time!!! YaY! As much as I dread what follows I have to say that Fall is my favorite season with the beautiful colors on the trees and of course pumpkins! I havent been able to get much crafting done recently but hopefully with the cooler weather I will soon. I just wanted to share a card I made for a good friend of mine that lives out of state.
    I've done many easel cards before, its probably my favorite kind of card, but this time I tried something new. I made a 3x3 post-it note tray on the inside and because of its thickness I left a half inch space between the top and bottom of the card. The card front is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I trimmed a piece of cardstock to 5 1/2 x 11 1/2. With the cardstock horizontal I scored it at 3in, 5 1/2 and at 6 in. Then cut a separate piece of cardstock at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 for the card front. Once you fold the 5 1/2 x 11 1/2 piece of cardstock on the score lines you then adhere the separate cardstock front to the bottom half of the top of the card. If you adhere it to the whole top it will not work when you want to have the card stand up.
Hope you Enjoy!!
Any questions let me know!!
