I made an easel card for my swap and I love how it turned out! I think I like this technique because it lays flat to fit in an envelope but it also can stand up to be displayed while still covering the handwritten message inside. Below is a list of my supplies. All supplies for this card can be purchased at my Stampin' Store.
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Tip Top Taupe, Basic Black
