October Magnolia-licious DT Sketch!

Happy October 1st everyone! Since it's the first of the month that means it's time for the Magnolia-licious DT Sketch! This month it was my turn (Suzanne, hee hee) to come up with it, and I decided instead of a traditional sketch we'd use a fun template.

This Easel Card Template that you can find HERE is quick & easy to use and such a fun way to present a card! I easily switched my dimensions to a 5.5" square so if you want to make it bigger than the template--go right ahead!!
And JUST FOR FUN, as a TWIST (totally optional) you can make your card Monochromatic (all tones of one color)!!

This is a direct link to the template HERE! This is a direct link to the instructions HERE!
**NOTE--I will add a picture step by step tutorial slideshow for you on Friday! **


Now if you wanna join in on the fun, because you have allllll month to do so--upload your card here in the comment section so we can all see (I will try and get them in a slideshow for ya too) and for a chance to win a stamp of your choice from Magnolia-licious!

Measurements for Easel Card:
-for a 5x5" square (1 pc of cs at 5x10" & scored at 2.5" & 5", 1 pc cs at 5x5")
-for a 5.5" square (1 pc of cs at 5.5x11" & scored at 2.75" & 5.5", 1 pc cs at 5.5x5.5")
-for a 6x6" square (1 pc of cs at 6x12" & scored at 3" & 6", 1 pc cs at 6x6")

Directions for Easel Card: (click on slideshow to make larger)


Now scroll down to see all the fabulous DT's Easel Cards (they will be added as they come in)!! I added an extra picture of mine so you could see how the easel looks from the side--pretty cool!!

hugz,
Suzanne, Diana & the Magnolia-licious DT

Deana said...

Wow....I really like the easel cards. I always hate it when people throw out their card right away and the easel really encourages them to display it for a while (without having to go buy a stand). I will definitely be using this one again!

My card is here.
