Our family to yours Christmas Card


I have made this easel card for friends that go back a long way and their family.

I have covered the top and bottom of my card with patterned paper from my stash. I die cut the baubles with a Spellbinders nesting set in red mirror card and cream card. I added the satin ribbon and bows on the top of the baubles. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a die from a Spellbinders nesting set. I used the next size in the nesting to cut a red mirror card shape to mount the sentiment before attaching it to my card. I have used a Gemini Edge'ables die to cut the element for the base of my card in red mirror card. I paper pieced the sentiment with gold mirror card. I attached a strip of cream card across the base of my card. I used foam pads to attach the strip so it will act as a stopper for the easel. I added satin ribbon and a bow to complete my card.
