To make the card base you can use 8 1/2 x 11 card stock. The heart dies i used are retired-you can use any shape die to make the easel card. Basically you measure your die height and width and cut the width by 11 from card stock, then you score at the height. measure up from the score line to edge of the 11. Say the die was 6 inches high and you score at six the measurement up from the score line will be 5. You take this measurement and divide in half, in the example that would be 2.5 (5 divided by 2) so the second score line would be at 8.5 you then fold over at 6 and up at 8.5, Then you run through bigshot with the die having a gap at the top creating a hinge. You then adhere a full die cut to the flap and you have your base. I think we may need a video. leave me a comment if you want a video added.
I have instructions for assembling this card if you click on the TAMS link.

Happy New Year-This last month I've been putting the craft room back together after adding a powder room and then having it painted. I got quite behind for Christmas and somehow Christmas still came-and went and now here it is a New Year! Welcome 2016!
I took some picture as I put this card together. I cut the Sunburst out in silver and gold glimmer paper. Now the trick to getting the two tone to line up. I cut the glimmer papers and an adhesive sheet (sorry they are retired now) all to 4 x 5.25. when I cut the glimmer papers I lined the edge of the glimmer papers up in the same corner of the die for each of the colors.
a big bow was tied in the cord and it was glued to the back. the sequin trim was added and it was all adhered to the doily.
next blog! See you next month! All the supplies are listed below the blog links.
