My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #33 - Easel Cards


Hey everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was great!
Well it's time for another Monday Challenge over at My Craft Spot. This week it's #33 Easel Cards.
I had such a great reaction to my other wreath card that I thought I would show you another version.
I just love pink and white for Christmas.:)
Make sure you head over to My Craft Spot and check out what the other design team members have made and make sure you enter this weeks challenge for your chance at a fabulous prize. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
Wreath cut out at 3 1/2 from the Jolly Holidays cartridge
Cardstock - Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper - Recollections
Martha Stewart branch punch
Embossing folder - Stampin Up
Ribbon - Papertrey Ink
Also used glitter, bling, 2way glue pen, atg, dimensionals, tombow mono glue

Well I`m building up the muscles in my one hand making these cards. LOL! Punching about 50 branches for each card is killer, but well worth the end result. Make sure you use a thinner cardstock to punch  the branches, not Papertrey Ink. Their cardstock is way too thick to punch. I tried!

I love that Kimberly`s sentiments can be used for the inside and outside of your cards

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Now go make yourself an easel card and enter the challenge.
I am also entering this into some challenges. Stamptacular Sunday #138 -Punch It & C4C113

Take care,

I love the card, and pink and white for Christmas is my favorite color combo:) the wreath is beautiful.

Carrie said...

That's so cute. I love that you used pink on a holiday card. I mean, who doesn't love pink?! heh. I can't imagine punching out that many branches for each wreath, but it's beautiful.

Another gorgeous wreath... What a showcase! I bet that hand must be all cramped out with punching out all those branches... I really love the end results though ~ it is sure a picture perfect card.....

This is so gorgeous, Candy! I've got to give one of these wreath cards a go as I've been so impressed with the ones you've created! I love the non-traditional colours you've used for this as well. Great job!
