For our Christmas Facebook Challenge this month we were asked to create 4 cards using the 3D technique. I've never done an easel card and with just coming in under the wire, again, I thought this was a simple yet effective card. I started at noon and, with the assistance of a migraine, managed to make these in just under 2.5 hours. Had to restamp the tree once but happy the way they turned out.
If you haven't seen the Easel card technique, just either search YouTube/ Splitcoast or leave a comment below and I'll try to get a video up.
I used Night of Navy cardstock and ink as well as Whisper White.
Stamp set: SNOW IS GLISTENING
DSP: JOYOUS NOEL
Die: SWIRLY SCRIBBLES
Punch: EVERYDAY LABEL
Silver Embossing Powder
The card base is 12 x 5.5 scored at the 3" and the 6". Fold on both score lines.
Cut the DSP 1/4" smaller (sorry my head just won't process numbers with this migraine)
The big thing to remember is when adhering your image mat to the front of the card, you are only placing adhesive 3" of from the bottom of the mat on both sides, otherwise your card front won't stand up!
I LOVE this stamp set. I've been wanting one similar (retired) for years so was thrilled to see this one come out. The set is part of our Snowflake Showcase will be available to you in the month of November, so just a few more days!
I may have posted the video previously (been a bit crazy here) but wanted to make sure you'd seen this collection.
I may need to order at least one package of the velveteen paper and of the trinkets. I like the lower profile of the snowflake trinkets so they may mail easier.
