A Christmas-y Everything Eleanor Easel Card

Challenge #7 on the Stampin' Addicts Pinterest board is to create an easel card. It's a fun layout which leaves the front of the card as a show piece. Although nice for any occasion, I think it's especially fitting for the cards we leave out on display like Birthdays, special anniversaries and especially Christmas!


This card actually uses non-traditional images (from Everything Eleanor) along with a carry-over holiday greeting set called Greetings of the Season. I love the large label stamp and how it coordinates with one of the framelits in our Apothecary Accents set. The shape is exactly the same but the die cut is smaller (you can see it popped up on top of the stamp here.) And those swirls could mimic branches to hold ornaments just as nicely as they hold this cute little bird. I should color his cheeks black so that he resembles a cardinal!

Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Greetings of the Season
Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Midnight Muse
