Easel Card

By Erika Martin - Stampin’ Mama http://www.papercraftplanet.com/profile/ErikaMartinStampinMama

Pg. 1

Supplies: * Dasher stamp, Serene Snowflakes set, Four the Holidays set (all Stampin’ Up) * Cardstock: Ruby Red, Kraft * Holiday Lounge patterned paper (Stampin’ UP) * Basic Brown ink * Pop-dots * Mini silver brad * Ruler & pencil * Thumb tack

Step 1: Cut 1 piece of Ruby Red cardstock at 4 x 8 inches. Cut 1 piece of Ruby Red cardstock at 4 x 4 inches.

Pg. 1

Step 2: Score and fold the long piece of cardstock at 2 and 4 inches.

Step 3: Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock at 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ inches. Cut a piece of patterned paper at 3 ½ x 3 ½ inches. Cut a piece of patterned paper at 1 x 3 ½ inches. Layer the pieces as shown in the picture.

Step 4: Adhere your layered pieces onto the 4 x 4 inch piece of Ruby Red cardstock that you cut in Step 1. This becomes the front of your card.

Step 5: Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock at 2 x 2 ¼ inches. Stamp the Dasher image onto it with Basic Brown ink.

Step 6: Cut a piece of Ruby Red cardstock at 2 ¼ x 2 ½ inches. Adhere the Dasher image on top.

Step 7: Apply pop-dots to the back of the Dasher image.

Step 8: Adhere the Dasher image to the front of your card. You can add glitter to the image if you’d like to embellish it a bit. I added glitter to the antlers for a little bit of sparkle.

Step 9: On the long piece of Ruby Red cardstock, find the center point of the large un-scored panel. You can do this by measuring up 2 inches from the bottom and 2 inches in from the side and then meeting where the two measurement lines would intersect. You can draw light lines with a pencil and then erase them later if you’d like.

Step 10: Use a thumb tack to poke a hole in the center point of the cardstock.

Step 11: Secure a silver mini brad through the hole.

Step 12: Stamp a greeting (I used one from the Four the Holidays set) along the edge of the cardstock, underneath the brad, with Basic Brown ink.

Step 13: Stamp some snowflakes (I used the cluster snowflake image from the Serene Snowflakes set) around the greeting with Basic Brown ink.

Step 14: Fold down the first scored section of the Ruby Red cardstock and apply adhesive to it.

Step 15: Adhere the front of the card to the folded part of the Ruby Red cardstock. Make sure the card front’s bottom edge is flush with the edge of the folded Ruby Red cardstock.

You’ll be able to fold the card down so that it is 4 x 4 inches and easily fits into a standard quarter-fold envelope. Scroll below for pictures of the finished card.
