Easel Jake:


Good morning all!  It has been rainy and icky out the past couple of days - gives me a chance to pull out some of my warm and cozy clothes :)

I have a Christmas card to share with you (big shocker).  This is the first time in a couple of years that I have made an easel card.  I had to find some old photos that I took so I could remember how to even make one!


I made Christmas trees out of paper scraps as I think I am the only one who doesn't have a tree die.  To give the trees a bit of glam, I crimped, sparkled, and blinged them up.
Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  Stamp Fairy Jake, JustRite Signed Sealed Delivered (background)
Inks: Craft Smart Chocolate and Gold, Tim Holtz Old Paper
Papers:  MME Lost & Found Christmas Special Edition
Cardstock: American Crafts, Recollections
Bits/Bobs:  Recollections gems, Studio G sparkle glue, Celebrate It burlap, Celebrate It snowflakes,
Tools:  Circle Spellbinders, sewing machine, mineral spirits and blending stumps



I created this card for the following challenges:   Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch and easel card (do not display sketch), Penny's Challenge - easel, 52CCT - Christmas trees, C is for Challenge - make it sparkle.

Have a super wonderful Thursday!
