Easel Card

I've searched and can't find the thread that talked about how to make the card that stands up--think it's called an easel card. I want directions to make one that isn't square. TIA

I thought I was the only one who stands it up against the craft table legs. It's always in reach. Yes, the scores are a tad wider and deeper than the Fiskars blade. I now reach for the Pal when...

I just went to Stampingmathilda's blog. WOW. I could have spent all night leaving comments. Everything is terrific. I use a lot of scraps on my cards, but your art is way better.

When I did calligraphy to address envelopes, I rubbed a white candle over the inked address to prevent smearing if it got wet. Don't know if the post office machines could handle that today, though.

Went back to the blog and saw that she used a Sizzix. I have a Cuttlebug and don't think you can turn the die and have it fit the machine. Anyone know about this? TIA

Cuttlebug and Sizzix Original Dies

Can you use the Sizzix Original Dies in the bug? If so, what is the correct sandwich? Thanks so much for the help.

It sounds like newsprint, but that may not be the color you want. Try a commercial paper store, one that sells all kinds of paper in large quantities. You might also try a commercial moving company.
