Whimsy & Wonder Stars are Shining Easel Fold Christmas Card. Stampin for Christmas Blog Hop. November 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

How is everyone, hope you have all had a great week?

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means I'm blog hopping with the Stampin for Christmas ladies. We hop every month throughout the year to make sure we are building our Christmas stash!

I decided to make a lovely Easel Card today, It's pretty simple to make and with with foiled Whimsy & Wonder DSP and a fancy fold, it looks fabulous



Mossy Meadow Card Stock

1pc - 4" x 11"

1pc - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Mint Macaron Card Stock

1pc - 3 3/4" x 5 1/4"

1pc - 3 3/4" x 2"

1pc - 3 3/4" x 3"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 2 1/2" x3 3/4"


Whimsy & Wonder DSP

1pc - 3 1/2" x 5"

1pc - 3 1/2" x 1 3/4"

1pc - 3 1/2" x 2 3/4"

3 x Fussy Cut Trees.

Silver Foil

1pc - scrap


First of all layer all the pieces of  DSP onto the coordinating sized int Macaron card stock mat.Now, stamp the star onto the smaller piece of  Mossy Meadow card stock.

Take the Mossy Meadow  and score at 2 3/4" & 5 1/2". Fold the card in half along the 5 1/2", then open up the card and fold front the left towards the centre on the 2 3/4" score line and make sure you burnish both folds well. 

Hold the card in a portrait manner and add the two smaller panels to the base section, add the larger one with liquid glue, then the smaller one with dimensionals. Stack two dimensionals on top of each other to give some height. This will hold the card in it's easel shape. Make sure you don't go too far up with them on the top edge, as the top panel will need a little room to sit.

Stamp the sentiments onto a scrap of basic white, trim and sponge the edges. Add this to the stacked piece you just laid down.

Next, add the largest panel to the bottom section of the card, making sure you only add adhesive to the bottom half of the panel. Otherwise you will stick the card together and it won't stand up well.

Turn the card around and add the last piece of whisper white to the section of the Mossy Meadow Card stock section showing, this will give you somewhere to write a message.

Fussy Cut some images from the DSP and add these to the star stamped panel - adhere this to the centre of the largest piece of the card. Punch out a star in silver foil with the starlit punch and add just above the trees.

I hope you enjoyed today's card, please continue through the hop and see what all the other talented ladies in the hop have made. Gez is up next - click on the next button to head on over
