Easel card «Merry Christmas! »

By Yulia Kuznetsova


“Hello everyone!

I am back today with Christmas card for this month’s challenge. I chose Christmas Magic collection to create this card. I love the Ephemera cards in this collection and the festive palette.

I have already used all my paper sets and will show you my projects soon. And today – Easel Christmas card.


This card can be easily assembled and completed in about an hour. You need 1 sheet of cardstock, one or two sheets with holiday prints from Christmas Magic 8x8 Paper Pad, 1 pocket from the set of Christmas Magic Tags & Pockets, one card from the set of Christmas Magic Ephemera Cards and some stickers. You need also flowers and creative imagination)

I've prepared a template for you. These are postcard details from cardstock. Size my first detail 24 cm * 12 cm. And second detail have a size 12 cm*12 cm.  

Prepare patterned paper for base and Ephemera card. Glue on the cardstock patterned paper, then pocket and Ephemera card. Decorate the card with flowers and the gift is ready!


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. I hope you like my card.” ~Yulia

I have never made an easel card before, but I just might do it now that I've seen how wonderful yours is. It looks like it stands up really well, which is important with Christmas cards. The papers you chose are very pretty. And the flowers are just perfect. I really like it.

Great card format to create in quantity for neighbor gifts- a big deal here in Salt Lake City- as the card really can be used as decor in one's home. I will dig into my G45 stash...I have a lot of St. Nicholas to mix with the calendar collection.Thank you for the inspiration!
