Ben 10 Easel Card

Hi crafty friends,

Today, we have a little boys card.  This one is for a five year old. I found this image in a comic. It was perfect for what I had in mind. The finished card size is A5 Easel.

This is a very easy card, but very effective for any little boy who loves Ben 10.  But you could use any character you have an image for.  You will need:-

A4 Centura Pearl Card
A5 Centura Pearl Card
A4 Gold Mirri Card
A4 Green Card
Ben 10 images from a comic
3 x 2 in Holographic Green Card
2.5 x 1.5 in of Gold textured Card
2 x 1 in pc of Black Card
Alphabet Peel off
Green Colour bling to embellish
 Ultimate Pro Score Board
Double Sided tape and Foam Pads

Firstly to make the easel card, take the A4 card, short side against the butt end, score at A4 half and also A4 Gate.  Firstly fold and burnish in half, (to look like an A5 card), next fold and burnish the A4 gate fold, this .  This will become the base of the easel. 
Cover the front panel with double sided tape or glue, (remembering, only cover up the score line as this will become the easel). Lay the card landscape, now attach the A5 card (landscape) directly ontoit.  This is now your easel card to decorate.
Cut the A4 Green card in half and attach to the front and inside base of the card,. I think this gives it a stronger structure. 
Cut the Gold Mirri in half, giving 2 A5 pcs.  Cut an inch from the top and side, these will be matted onto the front and base giving a half inch border.
Using the main picture image, attach to the centre of the card, line up the base imagine and attach making sure that the imagery is in aliment.
To make the stopper, matt and layer, green holographic to the textured gold card, finally the black card.  Personalise with name and greeting and attach to the base.  Finally embellish with gems.
