Boy-ish Easel Christmas Card

on December 1, 2013

I was making a christmas card for a family with two grown-up boys, so I wanted to make something that wasn’t too girlish. I also wanted to make an easel card. This is what I came up with:

Card Front

This is the front of the card. The trees, house and hill design was taken from birdscards.com. The pp is from the A5 boofle pack. The green card stock, white die cut frame, and white card stock are from itsybitsy.in The green ribbon is from a local craft store.

Card StandingThis is what the card looks like when it is standing. I’ve used the complimentary green pp from the same stack. I used red card stock to complement the green pp. I added another tree and house in the center of the card and printed a sentiment on it. I used 3D tape to raise the oval frame.

Card OpenThis is what the inside of the card looks like when it is opened up completely. I added a piece of white paper to write my message on it, and bordered it with the red pp.

Materials used:

Green, red and white card stocks, die cut frames (white oval and rectangle) – itsybitsy.in

Red and green pp: A1craftsupply.blogspot.in

Green and red ribbon, 3D tape, double sided tape – local craft store
