RRR December Blog Hop: Stamperia Sweet Christmas Carol Easel Card
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.
