McMahon Five Designs New image and Tutorial

I am very excited to show you today's Easel card that I created using one of McMahon Five Design newest image. I also included a step by step tutorial on how I put it all together.
********************************
Supplies needed:
Card Stock
Designer Paper
Ruler
Scoring Tool
Glue or double sided tape
and your embellishments
******************************
Cut one piece of card stock measuring 6"X 12" and score at 6" and at 9" on the long side. This will be your base.

Take a second piece of card stock and cut measuring 6"X 6". This will be your card topper.

Fold base card stock along the scored lines and it should look like this.

Cut some designer papers to create your card topper. I inked my edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

I colored in my lovely image using my beloved Copics and created a frame for her, also inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

Here is my completed card topper

I applied double sided tape on the base only where shown. The bottom half of the card topper will attach here.

And should look like this.

Inside bottom of card. Please note that when I embellished the base I added a 3-D embellishment so that when the card is in the open position it will rest against the embellishment and not slide closed. Oh I hope that made sense.

I hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial and that you will give it a try. Please let me know if you do, I'd love to see your creation.
