A traditional A6 card

A6 cards are the size I have decided to go with. The reason may be because I have about 800 envelopes that size - LOL!

This is my first break from easel cards. I hope I can stay away. They are so tempting!!!!!

Anyway, I believe this is a Stampendous stamp but I forget.  I went back to my prismacolors and gamsol for this card.  The background sky is done with a ColorBox Chalk pad and a Kosh, another oldie but goodie.

I hope you enjoy it!

Easel Card #4

This is my favorite. I am not sure I can do better than this so I am going to quit making christmas easel cards. (Yeah, right!)

This card just fell together. I realized that the texture of the beard and the fluff of the hat should be different so on the beard, I used Liquid Applique. Any of you remember that baby? I used that years ago and now I am using it again.  I then stamped a tiny holly and mounted it on a dimensional to keep the "easel" in place.  Don't forget to click!

Easel Card #3

Boy, it really is hard to stop making these babies.  This card is really cute. I found this stamp at a convention in Las Vegas and thought it was so cool!

I used the same paper as I used in the first easel card I made.  If you click on the card, you can see I used the new cuttlebug borders for 5x7 cards on each side. That tied the paper in.  I used a christmas bulb as the stop for the fold.  For the beard and the hat I used faux flower soft. It is so easy. Just get styrofoam balls from the dollar store. Rub them together over a ziploc bag or something. Then take glue and put it where you want the fluff. Sprinkle the fluff and you're done. Easy Peasy!

Don't forget to click so you can see the affect of the styrofoam.

Easel Card #2

I decided that I didn't want to make small cards anymore. So this easel card is 5" x 5".   I never thought I would have a use for the background paper but it was a perfect fit to this Holly Card.  The holly and the berries are sealed in diamond glaze. It is a very pretty affect.

Easel Card #1

I have to say that when I first saw easel cards, I wasn't impressed. Then I was looking for an easy and fast card to make. Well, let me tell you, I fell in love with easel cards.  I am crazy about them.

I first started out with a 4" x 4" card.  I had some paper that I had for ages so decided to use it on this card and it really looked great!!  You can't tell that the dots are red rhinestones but they are.

Thanks for looking!
