Christmas Inspiration

Hi Everyone,


I have been in the Christmas card designing mode for a few days. Now, I know some of you like to get an early start on your holiday cards so here is a card to inspire you today. I decided to design a circle easel card. I've been wanting to use this holly stamp for weeks now, so here it is.







Here is the card opened up. What is so cool about easel cards is they can be displayed very easily and are easy to make too.







Here is a close up of the sentiment stamped on the tag. This is popped up with dimensional foam and it's what holds the card open.






Here is a side view.













The easel card is quite simple to make and you can make it a square, rectangle or circle shape.I love that flexibility when designing a card. Hope you give the easel card a try.

Here is the card recipe.
