Sending Owl My Love

Week four of July brings our weekly Challenge at Made Especially for You.
Create a card using a specific technique.
We are making Easel Cards.
I absolutely love, love, love to design easel cards. 

My easel card starts with a 4" x 8" base.  Beginning at the left side, lengthwise, score at 2" and 4"
Crease 2" score line up like a mountain.  Crease the 4" score line down like a valley.
Cut another piece cardstock 4".  This will be the front of the card.
Decorate the front as desired and glue this piece to the first 2" section from left.
Decorate the inside, which is the 4" section on the right of the 4" x 8" cardstock.
Please note:  when you decorate the inside, you will need to use mounting tape.
This will help raise the paper up just enough to create the stop for the easel.

The Owl image was a freebie from Melonheadz.
Owl sentiment from The Crafts Meow
Love sentiment from Close to My Heart.

Our sponsor this week is Paper Piecings by Nikki which you can find HERE.
One randomly chosen winner will receive a $15.00 Gift Certificate to their store.

We would love to see your Easel Card creations!
