Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I traveled to western Wisconsin to teach a basketry class and enjoyed every minute of my time there and traveling. While the vibrant fall color is fading, it was still a beautiful drive through the Wisconsin Driftless area.
Today I wanted to share this sweet little easel card with you, made with CTMH City Sidewalks paper, the Joy to You and Me stamp set by CTMH, and a cute sentiment stamp from Stamps of Life. I had a great time making this card, and I love the little surprise element when it is opened.
I made this card by using the horizontal orientation of a blank card, and cutting away the outside layer, leaving just a 2 1/4″ panel. There is about a 3/4 inch side strip to the left where I layered red and the small top strip from a piece of the City Sidewalks paper.
The right panel is stamped with the Stamps of Life stamp and I ran just the top portion through the Cuttlebug with a snowflakes embossing folder.
I love the little easel portion which was created with the Joy to You and Me stamps. I stamped and cut each little house out separately, stamped the lamppost and snowflakes right on the designer paper and stamped that tiny little dog in front of the red house. I had to make sure he got back in the folder. I’d hate to lose him.
The inside, under the panel, is just a fun little scene. This is the second time I’ve used this set and I love how sweet and versatile it is. A couple little rhinestones hold up the panel when the card is open.
That’s it for today. Thanks for joining me and have a great week!
