Stamperia Sweet Christmas Carol Easel Card

RRR December Blog Hop:  Stamperia Sweet Christmas Carol Easel Card

Hello, Friends!  Today I’m sharing this Stamperia Sweet Christmas Carol Easel Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s sweet blog.

I’ve used the gorgeous Winter Carnival Ribbon Club Assortment to compliment the shabby chic papers.  Mineral Ice Checkerboard Satin Ribbon and Aqua Shell Print Satin Ribbon lend a frosty feel to the card design, making it perfectly wintry.  White Bead Berry Sprays are tucked in with my flowers to add lots of texture and sparkle.

Because this is an easel card, it folds for mailing and stands upright for display.

TIP:  When scoring your 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card base, add in a 1/2″ spine to allow the easel portion of the card to close neatly over the easel stopper.

Stamperia Sweet Christmas Carol Easel Card: A Peek Inside

It’s easy to add a pocket to the interior of an easel card.  Simply cut your designer paper layer about 2 1/2″ longer than the height of the base.  Score along the bottom and fold.  Create gussets for the sides and then adhere to the base.

You can add a gift card pocket on one of the upper folded sections as well.  Here, i die cut the Infinity Border from both blue and ivory cardstock.  Then I adhered just the sides and the bottom to the card base.

Tuck images from the cut apart pages of the collection inside the pocket.

This folio is simply folded paper with a little journal card glued to the inside.  But it’s a great resting place for a tea bag or other small treat.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties the lovely Linsey has in store for you.  Be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop, then finish up at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog where you will answer Bonnie’s question of the month.  This will enter you into the drawing for your very own Ribbon Club Assortment.

Stamperia Pink Christmas Ice Skates

Stamperia Pink Christmas Ice Skates for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  These Stamperia Pink Christmas Ice Skates are so dreamy when matched up with ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Ribbon Club.   Growing up in Vermont, I had to wear my older brother’s black hand me down hockey skates.  Not exactly inspiring for a young girl who imagined herself to be a graceful swan.  The reality is, I tumbled my way across the ice while pushing an old broom in front of me for balance.  But a girl can dream…and this card is the stuff dreams are made of!

Stamperia Pink Christmas Ice Skates: The Basics

This is a 5″ x 7″ top fold card with a 3/4″ spine.  Machine stitching, paper doilies, glittery die cut stars and soft pink posies amp up the shabby chic vibe.

TIP:  Create a shabby chic border by layering Mineral Ice Checkerboard Satin Ribbon with Aqua Shell Print Satin Ribbon along the top edge of the card.  Tuck the ends of the ribbon behind the card panel to create a finished look.

Tie a triple loop bow from the Shell Print Satin and top with petite posies and silver glitter jingle bells.  The Zutter Bow it All Tool makes it easy to tie these bountiful bows.

Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Ice skates and mini jingle bells top this tag.  Hold everything in place with a bit of Iridescent Metallic String.

Don’t forget to use ribbon inside your card!  It makes a great closure for this little gift folio.

These sweet gift card folios are a wonderful way to present a little Christmas Cheer.  I’ve filled this one up with some cookies, a Santa spoon, peppermint stick, honey stick, chocolate and tea.  Have several of these folios on hand during the holidays because they make wonderful last minute gifts.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.  And here’s a link to an older Stamperia Pink Christmas project.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamperia Pink Christmas Card Folio: The Layers

To create this rich, layered look follow these simple steps:

  • First cut a 5 5/8″  mat from soft teal cardstock.  Distress the edges and ink with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
  • Next, cut a 5 1/2″ mat from soft pink cardstock and repeat the distressing steps.
  • Now cut a 5 1/4″ layer of the pink and aqua mixed media background page from Pink Christmas. (The one with the squirrels on the back side).
  • Then stitch or adhere all 3 layers together .
  • Add a layer of white crochet lace from the ribbon club assortment along the border edge of the patterned paper.

  • Now fussy cut the image from the paper collection and back with dimensionals like foam tape or waste chipboard.
  • Use postage stamp shaped scissors to cut out the stamp images and layer behind the focal along with the “Christmas” banner.
  • Adhere a white glitter snowflake in the upper left hand corner of the card.
  • Then adhere all the other layers in place.

This little vignette is created on top of a slice of wood my son cut from a branch.  First, I painted the surface with Picket Fence Distress Paint.  Then I added some Ranger Crackle Texture Paste and Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the edges.  Then I adhered the mini Woodland Tree, some more bead/berry clusters and a vintage button from my stash.  Next, I adhered the entire assemblage to a cut apart from the paper collection, backed it with foam adhesive and adhered in place.  A few more shell buttons from my stash, some icy branches and a touch of Diamond Stickles and dry brushing with acrylic paint complete the card.
