Quick and Easy Square Easel Cards

 I don't know about you, but sometimes I find myself needing to whip out a card or two for an event with a very limited time to do so.  Between teaching and ministry at church, there are times during the year that I am scrambling to keep up with my card making.  That is why I love having a few quick and easy cards in my arsenal. Square easel cards are perfect for this very thing.  With two score lines and the ability to cut the card base with a simple paper trimmer, these can come together very quickly and still look AMAZING!   

Here I used this lovely pack of papers from Craft Consortium that come with a variety of toppers and coordinating embellishments to quickly assemble this beauty. I was in a hurry making them because I was getting ready for company and working. I wanted to come up with a card type to teach my Mother-in-law and visiting Aunt to make on a crafting day they planned on having with me.  I had about 40 minutes between the end of the school day and a tutoring appointment to throw this together for the following day.  Yes, it is a simple layout, but it still looks great.  It was also easy enough for my Mother-in-law and Aunt to learn how to assemble as well. They were so thrilled with the results. They each made two of their own.  Here are the ones I made during our crafting day.
