Creating Card Stands

Click to Enlarge
I promised to share  several different ways that I use to make your cards free standing ... and over the weekend this is what I came up with.

Creating Card Stands  is another short video. 

I have tried to think of all the ways that could be adapted so that cards can be displayed in a very pretty way by the recipient.

I have covered the "A"Frame that I have used for quite some time and then moved on to ways to use the beautiful ornate stands that I discovered last week

These can be made out of any  card that goes with your colour scheme and I have given you some tips on what to do to make sure that your cards don't fall over.
 I got these  little stands  from  Ebay  and the link will take you to the straight to the page

And then I have also shown you how to make the most of your Spellbinders to create a frame that will be glued to the back of the card. 
You can adapt many of the dies that you may already have in your collection as long as it fits the back of your card.

And just in case you are saying that you don't have any Spellbinders or you don't want to buy the little card stand there is also a way that you can freehand cut a stand ... and so there is no excuse at all not to give this a go.
