Kickstand card

Here is a slightly different card style for you to try, it is called a kickstand card. The card base is folded at the top and a portion of the bottom of your card front is cut off, then a panel added. The panel can be any shape you like - round, oval, square, or rectangular as seen here.

A piece of Cutie Pie designer paper has been added to the front of the rose red card. The image, stamped in black Stazon on white cardstock, has been coloured using inkpads and a watercolour pen, but markers could also be used. This has been matted onto a piece of banana cardstock, and the bottom edge lined up with the bottom of the card base to ensure the card stands securely. Make sure you don't place any adhesive on the bottom part of the panel or the card won't open - trust me, the voice of experience! The sentiment was stamped in black Stazon on celery cardstock and placed on the kickstand panel.
