Easel Card with Cut File

I decided to create a cut file for the Easel Card I created for my hubby and in the process made three different sizes. I created in Design Studio for both George and Plantin Schoolbook. There are little slots that will assist you in figuring out where to score your easel card. There are three sizes of each card… 4 x 8, 5 x 8 and 11 x 4.25 and all were made to fit in an A2 envelope (4 3/8 x 5.75).

Here is a picture of the card I made for my hubby that you can use as an example. I used Sweethearts for the cuts and Design Studio to create the card and cut files.

Here is a picture of the cut file for the card and where to score. I’m using the 4 x 8” cuts in the examples below.

Once the card is cut, scored and folded it will look like this…

After the card is cut – cut the pieces that will be glued to the card. They will be glued as the picture below shows.

This is how the card will look with the cut files glued in place...

Here is how the card will look if you have George and do the extra cuts included in the cut file.

I also created a PDF file that you can download as instructions
