December 1 and time to get serious about the rest of the cards. A couple of grandsons are visiting this week so there will be a break in card making. This is the outside of an easel card - only the second I have made. I plan to make one for each of our grandchildren - to give them a bit of a memento from each Christmas - so they will be quite similar, with different layouts. Since I do not have the photography mastered, these will be posted in two different posts. The stamp is Stampendous, and the sentiment is inside the easel. I used three different embossing folders - snowflake, leaves, and a geometric pattern. I added some gold metallic mesh for one of the layers, as well as gold ribbon and a gold star. Inside (next photo) there is the sentiment by Stampabilities, Cheery Lynn pine branch die cuts, half pearls and glitter on the branches.
