Easel Card Template

As I said in my last post, I've been trying out some new card shapes, just to have a change. I made this easel card using the following dimensions. (Click to enlarge the image if you are having trouble viewing it.)
I used my Tonic Studios Super trimmer for cutting and scoring the card, and I used my shape mates for the circle. The circle shape mate I used is actually slightly over the 12cm, but it still works fine with the card. In fact, it works better than exactly 12cm if I come to think about it.
Then you glue the circle to the card and trim the excess. Then you decorate as you desire.
I used a little button for this card to keep the card propped up. You can use a cut out shape on sticky pads if you prefer.
I stuck punched flowers behind the greeting to frame it with a colourful border.The other punch used in this card is the Multi Detail Butterfly.

For a completely different look, I went a bit monochrome.
With this card I used a petal pairs punch around the edge for a pretty border.

The difference with this card is that I added an extra fold which foreshortens the base of the card and provided a little ledge to stick the dotty border onto.
The image is from the Graphics Fairy.

So with one template,I have created two different looks.
I hope you have fun if you try this.
