Snowman Season Merry Christmas Reverse Easel Greeting Card. Stamp n Hop December 2021 Blog hop

 Good Evening Everyone

I'm hopping along with the Stamp n Hop ladies tonight and we have the Christmas theme for our final hop of 2021. 

I wanted to try out the Reverse Easel Fold for a long time but I always thought it was going to be super tricky and complicated - It's not at all - if I can do it ANYONE can do it! haha, plus I need to say a massive thanks to Karen Egan of Crafty Karen Designs who inspired me to create this, and I also used her measurements as a starting point - which helped so much!







Measurements

Basic Black Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 10"

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

1pc - 4 1/2" x 3"

Basic Gray Card Stock

1pc - 4 3/4" x 5 5/8"

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

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

4pc - 2 1/4" x 5 5/8"

Peaceful Place DSP

1pc - 5 3/8" x 4 1/2" 

3pc - 2" x 5 3/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 1" x 3 1/4"

1pc - 2 1/2" x 4"

1pc - 2" x 5 3/8"

-----------------------

On the long side, score the basic black card stock at 2 1/2" and 5" and fold and burnish as though you are making a Z Fold card to create your card base.

Take all the DSP and adhere to the relevant sized basic gray mat. Also add the 2" x 5 3 /8" of Basic white to a matching mat.

Add the largest panel to the card base, then two identical DSP panels above. 

On the reverse of these sections add a DSP panel to the top and the basic white panel below so there is somewhere to write a message.

On the last piece of basic white, stamp the snowman and the sentiment in memento. Once dry colour the snowman in with some Stampin Blends and layer to the remaining basic gray and basic black card.

Stamp the sentiment onto the smallest piece of basic white, then layer to the Basic Gray and Basic Black mats.

Add the sentiment to the card base centrally about 1/2" away from the edge of the card with dimensionals. this will give height to tuck the snowman panel behind and keep the card upright.

Pop some dimensionals onto the top third of the snowman panel and adhere to the top panel of the card, again making sure it is centered with the sentiment and the card base.

I hope you like today's card. Please take a few minutes to go through the rest of the hop and see what other Christmas Inspiration the other crafters have made to share with you. Liz Yuille is up next, click below to pay her a visit.......
