Ornament Easel Card

This is a 4 1/2"x6 1/4" easel card. I used white cardstock for the easel base. I trimmed some dark blue shimmer cardstock 1/4" smaller and some white cardstock 1/4" smaller than that and layered them all together. The front of the card was made with the dark blue shimmer cardstock, cut at 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I cut some white cardstock 1/4" smaller. To create my patterned background, I punched a snowflake out of a piece of paper. I then used it as a stencil and inked snowflakes onto the white cardstock. I used a blue and a silver ink for the snowflakes. I cut the ornament from the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge. It is cut at 5 1/2." I then added a couple of silver snowflake buttons. To finish the inside I cut a strip of dark blue shimmer cardstock at 4"x1." I then added another silver snowfake button to act as the stopper for the easel. I also stenciled in two more snowflakes with silver ink and stamped my sentiment in the blue ink.
I made this card for these two challenges:

  • 365 Cards: "Day 225" - use a punch to create a stencil to decorate your card

  • Friday Mashup: create an easel card with snowflakes
