My 1st Triple Easel Card
This card took me a little while (only because I dragged my heels). It was for my son's 30th birthday.
Firstly, he was confused as he did not know how it was meant to stand or look but thereafter was totally chuffed.
I have been making cards for about a year and a half and I usually only make them for my friends and family, although my husband wants to know when I am going to turn my cardmaking into a business.
I have sold a few but I am still not confident enough to sell them and I like to make a card according to the recipient.
I have photos of other cards I have made and will add them at another stage.

The Triple Easel Card is one of the variations on that theme and you will find more in the Easy Projects section in the NavBar to your left.
You can go from the single style right up to the Quad Easel Card and all are easy to do.
This card is lovely and shows how you can alter the way the Easels face to suit.
There are many beautiful designs for you to try and the Sitemap will show you every page on the website.
They are all waiting for you to try them out.
We are all our own worst critics when it comes to showing off our work or even selling it.
But we need to remember that lots of people have no interest at all in making cards and so the work that you produce is wonderful.
Always ask a fair price for the work you do and don't under sell youself.
It takes time and effort, care and skill to make cards and every one that you do will be special.
And of cousre the more you do the better you will become.
Didn't I say it would become addictive before long. I'm sure I did ... and that means your "Stash" will grow too until it over runs your entire house.
