Half Cut Easel

Good Morning!
This will be quick.... I want to get my carpets done early!
After they are done ALL of my spring cleaning is done and
I'm a free woman! I used the same half cut die technique
I used yesterday only I made an easel card! This took about
an hour to figure out! Now I can tweek it up a bit with my
next one!

My card base is 41/4 X 12 and scored at 4' and 8'. I extended my 
half cut die from the first panel to the middle panel. It worked out
pretty well I think. I then cut my thoroughly modern dp with the
same nestie and used the negative . This is the first time I have
actually used the bird punch from SU to make a bird ! LOL!
This is the card flat. It will fit a regular business envelope!

Well that's it for today... see you in the morn with Magical Monday!
Carol.... one week from today :)

What a stunning card Patti. I just love the colours, love the bird (especially how you did the wing with dsp) and the stamp set too. I'll have to give this a try, its great that it fits inside a regular business envelope.
