WINNER! Baby doll...

 This Mo Manning image has been colored with Copics in one of my favorite color combos in the RV color family for the  iCopic Weekly Challenge   I created the faux frame around her by masking the edges and sponging with Distress Inks.  The main image panel is then mounted on DP and fastened to the top fold of this Easel Card.  An explanation of the fold for this card and photos are found at the bottom of this post.

This card should be eligible for the following
IMAGES:  The focal image is "To Grammy's" from Mo Manning 
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from K & Company "Sweet Nectar"; base CS is Georgia Pacific.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Candi  was colored with Copics & ribbon is from my stash.
INKS: Distress Inks: "Bundled Sage" was used for creating the faux frame around the image. The focal image is a digi from Digital Pencil Too printed out on a Canon Pixma & colored with Copics: 

Here are the steps for making this very easy Easel Card:

  1. Starting with an A2 card with the fold at the top.  Fold back the front of the card in approximately half to make the bottom edge meet the top fold as can be seen here.
  2. On my card I have attached DP panels to the front and inside of the card to match.  I also attached an all white panel hidden under the image panel that will be used for my personal message.
  3. The image panel is mounted on coordinating DP to provide a strong mat as it will only be attached to the top half of the card front. 

4.  The sentiment was stamped and matted with the same DP used for the focal image and (this is the important step) was mounted with foam tape to the inside bottom so that it is raised and will hold the card open.  The image panel merely catches behind the sentiment panel and voila! - an Easel Card is made.

5.  Embellishments are added as amuses you!
