June is a big month for card-making for me: I have 7 anniversaries, 7 birthdays, Father's Day for 2 dads, plus assorted weddings and graduations that come up every year! So I really love this new collection from Heartfelt Creations! My head is bubbling with ideas for beautiful projects! Be sure to see all the creative beauties created by the design team on the HC blog. Here's my first sample - it's an easel card - a really easy card to make that always makes a great impression. I have instructions below, or hop over to Splitcoast resources, where they have a really good tutorial.

The main card face is made using the single piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". This makes it easy to decorate before attaching it to the base card. Start by stamping the scroll image using embossing ink on the ivory cardstock, and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Trim the image closely. Using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, position the sentiment in the middle of the scroll, then stamp on the scroll in pink ink.
Mount one of the translucent paper rectangles onto the cardstock, then mount the scroll in the lower part of the card. Finish by adding the pink pearl swirls around the top of the scroll.
Cut and emboss a label 4 die cut from ivory paper, and use the next largest die from the Labels 4 small set to cut and emboss a pink label. Use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the sentiment the middle of the ivory die, using embossing ink. Then emboss the sentiment with gold embossing powder. Mount the ivory label on the pink one.
Score the base card at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4", then fold both score lines in the same direction, forming a base with a tent folded over it at one end. To create the inside, mount the other piece of translucent paper on the base. Mount the sentiment on the left lower portion of the base. Add pink pearl swirls around the sentiment. Glue a strip of lace above the sentiment.
The final step is to mount the card face onto the front of the folded tent on the base of the card. The lace acts as a stop to hold the front of the card upright.
