Snowflake Easel Card

Another easel card, this time with a wintery theme!  Whoever thought this fold up is a genius! The 3-D look is so much fun and there are so many stamps and dies that can be used.  They are my new favorite (I know, I'm fickle...everything is my favorite!).  Here is one that I used for Christmas cards this year!  The snowflake is a die from The Cat's Pajamas.  You can see it here.  I cut 4 of them out of typing paper, folded them in half and glued them together.  Then I added a string using fishing line and a crimp bead.  It's very easy because the snowflake is symmetrical and lines up perfectly when you glue it together.

Here is a close-up of the snowflake, it is so pretty!

My card needed a little sparkle so I made an embellishment using white and blue card stock, vellum and Stampin' Up glitter paper punched out using a bunch of different punches.  Here's a close-up.  

It's such a busy time of year and I was in such a hurry to get my cards out that I cleaned up without writing down any of the supplies I used.  I remember that I used a My Favorite Things clear stamp to do the dotted background, the Cat's Pajamas snowflake and a Spellbinder Labels die to make the easel cut out.  If you need specifics on the punches I used or have any other questions, please contact me.

Hope you are having a fun and festive holiday season!  Thanks for stopping by!!
