Easel card with blue toile stamping tutorial.

Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am sharing an easel card tutorial with blue toile stamping.  This is card brings back some oldies but goodies in my Unity treasure box.

Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.  Be kind.

Using toile accents really makes this easel card pop.

Helpful tips:
Here are tips for creating this toile easel card:  First, stamp the background toile and the sentiment onto cardstock using a stamp positioner like the Misti.  Next, trim or die-cut all of the cardstock stamped panels and layers.  Now, score the blue frame panel to make a front easel.  Then, begin assembling the top layers and add twine or cording to the tag accent.  Next, fold the blue scored easel panel and adhere the back section to the top fold card base.  Now, add the top accent sentiment section.  When finished, this is an A2 sized card with a front panel that folds out to make an easel card shape.
Card base:  A2 top fold
Blue frame panel:  cut 4" x 10 1/4" and
score on the long end at 5 1/4" x 7 3/4".
Toile background:  5" x 3 3/4"
(Also, make an accent trim with leftover cuts.)
Front white bottom panel:  2 1/4" x 3 3/4"
Layered Tag:  3 1/2" x 2 1/2"

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
