Big Bulb Easel Card

Lois here today with another fun card.  Here it is the first week of December.  Christmas is right around the corner.  I'm sure we're all in the middle of making lots of Christmas cards; I know I am.  My card for today is another one using the CottageCutz Ornament dies and Peachy Keen face stamps.


Supplies used on my card:

White cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Patterned paper cut 4" x 5 1/4"
Coordinating patterned paper cut 4" x 5 1/4" and 4" x 1 1/2"
Scrap of yellow cardstock approximately 3 1/2" x 4"
Scrap of silver cardstock
Gold enamel dots
White and red gel pens
Distress ink - Scattered straw
Silver cord
CottageCutz Ornament die - Bulb
Peachy Keen face stamps - 1 5/8"
Adhesive (tape runner, tearable tape, foam dots)

Cut out the ornament from yellow cardstock and the cap from silver cardstock.



Sponge the yellow distress ink around the edges of the ornament to add some depth.


Cut the cardstock panels to create the card.  Because this is an easel card, you will need to score the 11" x 4 1/4" panel at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4".



Adhere the silver cap to the top of the ornament, then stamp and color the face, as shown.


Complete the front of the card with the patterned paper, ornament die-cut, twine, and enamel dots.



Because this is an easel card, you will need to place adhesive on the small bottom section of the card base.  I used tearable adhesive tape for ease of application.  Adhere the bottom of the card front to this bottom section of the card base.  Create the easel by folding on the score lines.  Then add a "bumper" by placing a large enamel dot onto a foam pop dot and place in the center of the underlying base at a point where you would like the card to stand.  Then add a few more enamel dots, as shown.
