Easel Card

If you are looking for the Robin's Creative Cottage Stamp Release Celebration Blog Hop post click HERE!

Hello! I am so excited to finally be able to start participating in challenges again after my move and car accident injury! I have really missed doing all the fun challenges out there!! One thing I missed is those challenges that get you to learn and try new techniques. That was the case with the challenge over at My Craft Spot this week- Easel Card.  I have never made an easel card, but have been very interested in learning new card techniques.  They had a link to a great instructional video on their challenge post and it was very fun and easy! I am also entering the card in the challenge at Frosted Designs this week which was to use die cuts!
Here is my card:
And here is the side view:
All the paper is from SEI's Glitzmas collection (really love this paper collection- I've used it for 4 projects this week alone, lol). I just recently got the Elegant Edges cartridge, so I was very excited to break that one out! I used it for the border. I cut the tree with Winter Woodland, and added some Glossy enamel for the snow. The stamp sentiment is, of course, from Robin's Creative Cottage.  Here is a close up of my winter tree:
I hope you enjoyed my project and thanks for stopping by!!
