Have Faith Easy Easel Card With Cottage Cutz Die Cuts

Happy Terrific TuesDIE Scrapping Cottage friends!
Melinda here with you for another fun Tuesday. My project today features some dies from the fabulous new Australian Friends Die Release!!! Here is what I created.

This super cute and very easy easel card!

To create the base:
I started with a piece of 4.25 x 11 white cardstock. I folded that in half at 5.5"

I then folded the right half, which would be the "top" in half again. I just folded that half to the 5.5 fold I made first. I burnished it with my bone folder.

Here is what the base looks like once you have made the two folds. EASY PEASY!

I then cut a separate piece of 4.25 x 5.5 and that became the "top" of my card. I simply attached it with some adhesive to the bottom half of that top fold.... tent if you will in the picture above.

Here is a side view to show how I attached it once it was done.

To make a "ledge" where the top can "stop" and be held in place I used the double stitched rectangle die set to create this sentiment. I hand wrote the word "Have" and then die cut faith from the Faith Sentiments die set. I cut out a couple of sets of that adorable Koala die from the new release and added some flowers to the corner of the sentiment. I added some foam tape under the rectangle when attaching it to the base. That gives it just enough lift to allow the top to catch

Here's a closer look at that sweet Koala. I nestled her among all the pretty foliage and flowers that come with the die. To finish off, I added a few hearts from the hearts slimline die. I love all the hearts that come out of the negative space of that die in just one pass! I added all of that to one of the double stitched rectangles. I used some fun and super colorful patterned paper from Paper House Productions.

Here's a view of the front finished.

Here's a view of the side of the card. You can see that I added a piece of white cardstock to the top half of the base. This is so I can write a note to the recipient. 

Here is the fantastic new collection
