Can I still make this card if I don't have the Frame/Easel die cut? If so, how?

Very cute and easy card -- and I'm not a card-maker! Thanks for the info on how to make this without the Frame/Easel die cut too. I have lots of Sizzix dies but not this one.

Correction: thanks for "any info" on how to make this without the die! :D
