I think easel cards are always fun to make - and you can make them as circle cards. You start by making a circle card with a scallop circle die (by having the fold be slightly inside the cut line. then you need a single thickness circle of the same size (and color in this case). On one of the sides of the circle card, score it in half - that makes the easel mechanism. You then attach the single circle to the upper half of the mechanism piece. Now you just decorate the card - in this case I have Marcie from La-La-Land Crafts with her sporty inner tube and hat - stamped, colored with Copics and cut out - attached with foam tape to the top of the card - along with a happy birthday sentiment from Penny Black and some punched sea stars. The words stamped on the inside piece is attached with foam tape - that catches the top piece and creates the easel card.
