Diamoond Easel- Father's Day



A diamond easel card is an impressive looking card that is just as easy as a regular easel to put together. The main difference is the card front is cut to a point and the square topper is turned at an angle. I used a stamp set from Crafty Meraki called “My Hero”. I had never purchased anything from this company before and only heard of them through the Stamp and Scrapbooking Expo. I was very pleased with the set. It is photopolymer and the sentiments stamped very well. The set is 6 ½ by 8 and they would fit on many different sized cards. All but 1 of the stamps is over 2 inches tall. I will definitely be taking a second look at the website.
