Christmas Easel Card





Hello again. I have another creation to add to my gallery and this one is for the following challenges.
1. Friday Sketchers ... Sketch provided
2. Mo's Digital Pencil ... Colors red, green and gold.
3. Stampin for the Weekend ... Colors red, green and gold.
I decided to try to make an easel card since I see them on many blogspots. This is my first try at making one and I think I am hooked. I chose an image by Mo Manning called Noel bearing gifts. I decided to use Adobe Fireworks CS4 again and I really love the way the colors came out. I used papers from different stashes. On the front of my card I used my Fiskars round lace punch and my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I distressed the edges of my papers and the embossed papers. A few snowflakes, a silk flower and jewel brad, glitter glue and a sentiment completed the front. On the inside I used contrasting papers and cut out 2 scalloped ovals with my Nestabilities die. I used MS Word to print out my inside sentiment. Two gold square gems completed the inside.
