I decided to do a variation on his theme, and experiment with some twisted easel cards. Here is my easely peasely tutorial, just for you.
Take a square card
Fold the left hand side of the card, to form a triangle like so
This will form the front of your card, which we will now decorate
Choose a previously made topper, this image was stamped and coloured for us so we just needed to cut a frame for it using our Nesties dies.
Cut a piece of coordinating card to exactly the same size as your unfolded side of card.
Then glue your triangle like so
And adhere your cut card to this
Your card should now look like this.
Check the placing of your patterned paper before glueing
Then add 3d sticky foam to the topper
Be careful with the foam, it's double sided stickiness can cause problems
Once you have un-stickiefied your fur, chose a suitable cutter
And cut some card into funky strips
Glue to the centre of your patterned paper, or wherever you decide it looks best
Now, cut a piece of card, just big enough for a frame for a sentiment, and cut a slightly smaller piece of patterned paper, to fit just inside the card
Add your chosen sentiment
And use some more of those pesky sticky 3d
foam monsters, this time trying not to decorate yourself in the process
Here is the finished card.
As Podgy pointed out, the cards fold to fit in a standard envelope. Which is handy for posting to all your bear friends.
As usual I developed card making fever and made a few more with previously made toppers.
The topper box is looking a little empty now! Oops.
