A Different Style of Stand-Up (or Easel) Card

Good morning friends!

It's my day to post on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog, and since I was having so much fun making these Stand-Up (or Easel) cards, I made one for the ECD blog and one for mine. This one was the prototype, and I kept it nice and simple.

I love that Stand-Up cards fold flat and fit in a standard envelope, but then stand up for display. Elizabeth Craft Designs has new Stand-Up helpers which include some with WORDS. How fun! I used the 'Best Wishes' Stand-Up Helper for this card, and the 'Hello' for the card on the ECD blog.

I first saw this style of Stand-Up helper on the web, by Julie Davison at Julie's Stamping Spot.

The paper stack I used for this card had a sheet of printed jars. I fussy cut one for the embellishment, then cut the lid off a second one to pop up with foam tape.  The die cut hearts have Glossy Accents on them for some shimmer & shine.

I didn't write inside this card, so I can add it to my stash and put the appropriate greeting inside when I go to mail the card.

I hope you will join me on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to see the other Jar Stand-Up Card and see how easy these are to make using any of the Stand-Up Helper dies!
