I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have covered the top and bottom with card from the Crafters Companion Nativity 12x12in paper pad. I die cut the Mary and Joseph element in gold mirror card and attached that to my card and then cut the them again in light blue, burgundy, pink and white to enable me to paper piece the element. I used dies from a Spellbinders nesting set to cut the shapes added to my card. I added the gold mirror and white shapes in the top corner of my card with the sentiment attached. The sentiment is cut with a Sue Wilson die. I have cut white and gold stripes to add to the bottom of my card. I added navy satin ribbon to the card stripes, and attached this to the bottom of my card with foam pads so it will act as a stopper for my easel card. I used the Spellbinder nesting set to cut the elements for the base, the white element will include a personalised sentiment closer the to Christmas.
