Easel Card for Valentine's

Just a quick post of a standing Easel card. These are great because they fold flat for posting but stand up for display. I sell a lot of these at the Markets, but I could design a class for you around this type of card if you like.
No red hearts here - just a simple little wooden accent heart and some gorgeous paper. Here is the card folded for posting

 and here it is standing up.

thanks for looking, 

To cut only the half circle you use the "partial die cutting technique". There are lots of video tutorials on how to to do this, but essentially you place the top acrylic plate only where you want the framelit to actually cut and leave the remainder of the shape uncovered by the plate. This means there will be no pressure from the rollers going over the uncovered cutting surface. If you would like to see a video with the instructions for how to make this card you can click on this link. I have CASE'd Debbie Henderson.

  1. Could you please just tell me how to cut that half circle? I would apprierate it. Thank you! Please forgive my spelling!

    1. Hello Gloria, thank you for your interest. I have updated the blog post with a link to a video tutorial to explain the partial die cutting technique you have asked about. Hope that helps, Liz
