Many of my friends are avid Harry Potter fans (as am I), and I thought it might be fun to recreate Virginia's project with a Harry Potter-inspired one.
To start my card I scored an 11" x 8 1/2" piece of red 110-pound cardstock at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4".
I then Z-folded at the score lines.
After adding strips of Scor-Tape to the last panel . . .
I cut a yellow mat panel 5 1/4" x 8 1/4" and some Harry Potter-themed pattern paper slightly smaller . . .
. . . and adhered them to the card base.
Using images from Kindred Stamps' Students of Magic stamp set and patterned paper, I created a little scene -- adding a small calendar to a black banner. The "Platform 9 3/4" was stamped with some Just Rite letters and numbers, and the sentiment was computer-generated.
I then adhered this completed scene to the easel front and added the owl "bumper," which holds the easel open. I used large foam pop-dots to adhere the "bumper."
Here is a side view of the easel.
