Sweet Stamps Challenge 38 - Easel Card

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to make an Easel card.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.

I began with this wonderful new Christmas Joy 6x6 paper pad from First Edition.  It has some fabulous papers, glitter and non-glitter.  I created the card then stamped and heat embossed Tree Lace, Holly Sprig Large and Holiday Sparkles with Medieval Metals embossing powder.  I created the frame around the tree by stacking an Oval XL Stackers Nesting die on top of a Scalloped Oval XL Stackers Nesting die.  The last step was some gold Viva Decor Pearl pen accents.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
