Celebrate Independence Day Easel Card

Celebrate Independence Day
Send out a few easel cards to celebrate!
I got in my stash and found some Authentique Glory Collection pattern papers and sticker, but any paper would work. 
Begin by taking a 5" x 6 1/2" card base and score at 2 3/4" on one of the 5" sides. 
This is the front of the card. 
Adhere pattern paper to the 2 3/4" next to the 5" fold. 
Cut a second piece of pattern paper 5" x 6 1/2" to create the front. 
Adhere it to the 2 3/4" next to the opening of the card. 
Border punch pattern paper; adhere to card front. 

Add stickers to pattern paper; corner punch edges. 

Add sticker stars and punched stars along with random stickers from the Glory Detail Sticker Sheet. 

Cut banners from sticker border. 
Add to top of card front. 
Decorate with small staples. 

Add random sequin stars and glossy accent dots to card front. 

Cut smaller pattern paper to add to bottom inside card; this will form the easel. 
Add border stickers to strip.
Add sticker to strip with pop dots. 
This will keep easel standing when open. 

I hope you enjoy creating and sending easel cards.
