Project Tuesday - Easel Card

Hello and thanks for stopping by!! Today’s project is for this week’s challenge over at Stamps and Smiles - Project Tuesday. This week we are making an easel card. This was the first time making one of these and it won't be my last... I had such a fun time creating this card!! We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

For my easel card, I decided to use a NEW image by Stamps and Smiles called Tis the Season to be Jolly. This stamp set was a popular set this season and one of my favorites!! The snowman image was stamped on white cardstock and then again on some fun holiday paper by Martha Stewart. The images were paper pieced together. The colors on my card also included bordering blue which also was embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folders.
To finish off my design, I used a snowflake border punch by Martha Stewart. A bell was added to the snowman to remind us that Christmas is right around the corner. Once all of the layers were in place, glue was added and then sprinkled with some fun Martha Stewart glitter - which I LOVE!!

We hope you will stop by the Stamps and Smiles – Project Tuesday page, The Design Team have some really cute samples to help inspired you for the holidays!! Have a fun week and I will see you this Thursday with a fun sketch challenge!
