My stepper easel card

I have always liked the style of handmade card which is the stepper. My only 'problem' with this style of card is that it seems to be prone to collapsing / flattening when on display!! To remedy this, I thought I would combine the stepper with the easel style card. The end result can be seen in the photos below, followed by the recipe . .
Recipe for the stepper easel card above is:
 1 x card 210mm x 435mm
1 x A4 gold mirror card
1 x A4 printed backing papers (Jems Designs cd rom Enchanted)
1 x sheet toppers from the same Enchanted cd rom

white marabou feathers
ex large faux diamante gemstone sprays and self adhesive gems (hobbycraft)
number peel offs.

I scored across the base card at the 145mm mark (1/3 along the longest side) this section forms the base / easel part of the card, and which left me with an A4 size section of card which I scored as per instructions from my hougie board to create the stepper.
As with all easel cards I placed a raised border along the edge of the base section to form a stopper at the back which is what prevents the card from collapsing when on display.
With the extra section, this card is too bulky to fit into a normal A5 envelope but fits into an A5 card box quite nicely.
Thank you for visiting, it's been great to see you. xxxx
