ID: MC Nov/15 - Fancy Side Easel - ECD Season's Greetings - When This Christmas card
size: 6"w x 6"h 

Created: November 12, 2015

I do a lot of easel and side easel cards (my favorite style) but wanted to do a side easel that's off the edge...

The rubber stamp quote is by Quietfire Design  and the "Season's Greetings" from Elizabeth Craft Designs also available on Quietfire Design HERE

("When This Christmas..."); 


This side easel is the same basic structure as a normal side easel, but instead of cutting another piece the same size as your card base, just add on to the triangle shape of the fold... Scored and folded my cream toned cardstock.

I die cut (Spellbinders "Holly Frame") the front base layer from white cardstock, sponging through the die with Distress "Mowed Lawn", then cutting it diagonally to fit the triangle shape and using scissors to cut around the leafy flourishes. Dry embossed using Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder in the center section only. Adhered to card.

Die cut the dark green layer (Spellbinders "Beaded Circle") and adhered to card adding green holographic glitter circles (Stampendous "Green Holo Jumbo Circles").

Die cut the next layer (Spellbinders "Persian Motifs" set) from white cardstock, sponged with a dirty brown sponge and adhered to green layer.

Die cut the "Season's Greetings" from gold adhesive backed contact paper. Adhered to card.


On the floor: Stamped the quote on to white cardstock using Versafine Toffee and embossed with "Queen's Gold" embossing powder. Die cut with (Spellbinders "Decorative Holly Frame" set) moving the die to get a larger die cut. Adhered to card floor with 3D foam tape and it becomes my stopper.

Die cut the holly flourishes from cream toned cardstock and the dark green cardstock, shadow layering them. Adhered under and over the quote area.

As a final touch added some pearl flourishes.
