Easel Card - tutorial

My first one!! This will be long and detailed... I hope you find it useful! :)  Please, leave comments on what you think... the format, the details - too many, not enough?  What would you change?  For all the comments I recieve between tonight and Sunday evening, I will put into a RAK for the card I made :)  I know, not a huge prize, but doable :)  And it will be fun mail :)

KUDOS to you who write them frequently!!  I think I might try my hand at a video, but I only have a webcam, so we'll see how that goes :D

Thanks!

Easel Card

Cut your Soft Suede 8.5x11 cardstock into 11 x 4.25 inches
Score at 5.5 inches and fold
crease with bone folder
STEP TWO:
Take the front of your card, score at 2.75 inches and fold it under, creasing with your bonefolder. It should now make a tent with the back of your card.




STEP THREE:
Cut a piece of Soft Suede into 5.5 x 4.25 and adhere to the front of your card using adhesive below the crease only!











STEP FOUR
:
Cut Whisper White into 5.25 x 4.0 and adhere to the inside portion of your card

Colour in the image using markers, or water colour wonder crayons, or water colour pencils.
 
















STEP FIVE A:
Adhere to inside of Soft Suede card.
Stamp big heart from "Love You Much" set in Jet Black Stazon on Real Red, then cut out.












STEP SIX:
Punch out hearts, using Heart to Heart punch, in the middle of your Pretty in Pink cardstock, the Whisper White will cover it up!
Adhere the medium sized heart over the flower on the inside of your card, using HALF a pop up glue dot or a Stampin' Dimensional. This will help to tent the front of your card, creating the easel look.



STEP SEVEN:
Take your 5 x 3.75 whisper white cardstock and using your paper piercing tool and foam mat from the Mat Pack, pierce holes in each corner - 5 across/down, 3 accross/down.
