Festive Holly Easel “See Through” Card

Festive Holly Easel “See Through” Card

Hi Friends!

I just love Easel cards but I wanted to show you a bit of a twist in the traditional easel card.  I made it a windowed Easel card.

Products Used:

HCPC-3792 – Festive Holiday Cling Stamp Set

Project Instructions:

Start by creating a 6″ x 6″ easel card out of white card stock.  For a tutorial on how to make an easel card click here.  I wanted to make my card a little different so I cut a 5 1/4″ square hole in the center of the front panel of the easel card and added a piece of acetate on the back to serve as a window.  The wheel image was stamped on white card stock with Vintage Sepia Ink and die cut with the matching die before coloring with a combination of Vintage Photo, Festive Berries and Pearlescent Ivy inks and accented with Snow Writer and Crystal Clear Glitter.  The Festive Holly images were stamped on white card stock with Northern Pine Ink and die cut with the matching dies before coloring with a combination of Festive Berries and Pearlescent Ivy inks and accented with Red Stickles.  The sentiment was stamped on white Card Stock with Rich Cocoa ink and die cut with the Rebel Rose Untamed Tags die and accented with Crystal Clear glitter.

Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
