Punched Potpourri Easel Card

Easel cards are lots of fun, there are several variations in templates for them, but I preference the single 4" x 12" piece folded, rather than separate pieces stuck together. A good tutorial with measurements on my preference is here and I love it mainly because I can get 3 cards from one sheet of 12"x12" card stock and also because the base piece is all in one section rather than having to join bits together.

It uses several different techniques and was one I used as a make and take at a party workshop with moderately experienced stampers, it used stamping, punching, sponging, embossing with the Big Shot and markers direct to rubber.
