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.

    So lovely, Kathy. I always enjoy seeing the new ribbon collection and the beautiful creations you make with it. We may have closets of shame for our paper but I also have a large “bin of shame ” for the ribbon I regularly collect and regularly forget to use when I’m creating cards. Sounds like a New Year’s resolution in the making 🙂 I might need another bin if Santa brings me a RRR subscription! Wouldn’t that be nice? Thanks for sharing this folio and very tempting December collection of ribbon. Hugs

    Thanks a bunch for the tip to add in that 1/2″ depth on the easel base. This is such a lovely card…i’d definitely leave it on display all year long! That little pop of a darker blue adds such nice interest on this, otherwise. pastel card. Nice design decision! I LOVE the look of the inside of this card, especially the top section…LOVE that rose designer paper!!! Well done!
