So far I’ve been using watercolors and pencils for all my Anita Jeram stamps – it’s time to give them some Copic love!

Here are the colors I used….

If your clouds come out perfect, go ahead and stop at this point! If not – add some branches hanging down. Be careful not to get too symmetrical… Mother Nature doesn’t do symmetry much!

Easel card measurements

Whatever size of the card – first score the card as normal. In this case, 5-1/2″. then divide the front half of the card in half and score that – in this case 2-3/4″…then attach the card front on the bottom half only of the front. Add a crossbar so the easel has something to lean on to stand up. Include a sticky note with how to display the card – “Lean the front of the card HERE” with an arrow pointing to the right spot – if it’s going to someone who doesn’t know what an easel card is!
