Ever since I saw a triple easel card, I have been wanting to make one. I made my card so it would fit in a legal sized envelope. Finished card is 3"x9". I started with a piece of cardstock 6"x9". I scored and folded it so that it would fold lengthwise. I made cut lines from the top of the card to the centerfold at the 3" mark and the 6" mark. This made 3 flaps on the card. The two side flaps I folded diagonally, making right triangles with the 90degree angles next to the center flap. The center flap I folded in half. Then I cut 3 squares 3"X3" to adhere to the easels. I put the dogs on either side and put the sentiment square on the center panel. Easel cards usually need something to hold them in place. I decided to use the bones from the set to make my stops. I stamped each bone 4 times. I cut out and glued the 4 bones together. That gave each bone dimension, enough to hold the panels back, but not so much that the card can't be folded flat and mailed easily.
