Easel Card using a Stand Up Helper

 Elizabeth Craft Designs have created this new and clever idea – Stand Up Helpers. Their major purpose is to use these when making easel cards but they can also be used for sentiments just like you would use any other sentiment die. Just cut along the fold line. I hope to do a video shortly to show these in more detail but that will be at least a couple of weeks away. In the meantime here is the first card I created when having a trial run with this new creation.

The card stands easily behind the standup helper as you can see below.

 The Season’s Greetings can fold down when the card is laid flat and being prepared to go in an envelope.

 This photo shows the card as I began to flatten it out ready to go in the envelope. Folds flat like any normal card.

 This picture shows the top of the card folded back revealing the Season’s Greetings cut into the base card. If you wanted to use this sentiment on the front of a card you could just cut it from any scrap piece of card and then you cut on the line at the base of the wording. I will do a cut as soon as I can so that you see what I mean.

If you have any ideas using these Stand Up Helpers, I would love to hear/see them.

I will continue to create with these and add ideas.

Thank You for looking!

There are a range of sentiments available in the sentiment helpers and I have decided now to stock each of these. They will be arriving to my store later this week. They are:

Thinking of You, Thank You, Season’s Greetings, Hello, Happy Birthday, Get well, Congratulations and Best Wishes.
