Santa's Gifts Candy Cane Easel Cards

The final project from my November Holiday Card Stamp-a-Stack Class is cute & whimsical!  It features the cute characters from the Santa's Gift stamp set from the Annual Catalog, as well as a fun & fancy easel fold!  Let's take a closer look…

Santas Gifts - reindeer 1

Background Basics—The candy cane themed background really makes this card festive!  I adhered a 5" x 2" piece of the Holiday Fancy Foil Vellum to a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock, then matted it on a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Real Red.

Santas Gifts - reindeer 3

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Santa's Gift sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on the background.

Card Front—After wrapping some Whisper White Organza Ribbon around the layer and tying it into a double knot, I adhered it to the 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" Whisper White layer.

Santas Gifts - reindeer 5

Easel Card Base—The card base started as a traditional 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" folded Whisper White card, but I added one score line across the center of the card at the 2-1/8" mark with the Simply Scored tool.  That panel is folded toward the center of the card.  The stamped card front it then attached to the bottom panel only.  TIP: I like to use several strips of the Tear & Adhesive Tape for a secure hold.

Santas Gifts - reindeer 4

Easel Stand—To keep the front of the card standing, I adhered a 1-3/4" strip of Real Red card stock to the inside of the card.  That layer doesn't have much of a "lip" on it, so I also added a popped up element that could be used instead to keep it standing.

Sweet Sentiment #2—The stamp set has a two-part greeting, so I stamped the second part on a 3/4" x 3" piece of Whisper White, then trimmed the ends into fishtails.  A couple of Pearl Jewels flanks the element and adds a nice touch.

Santas Gifts - reindeer 2

Reindeer Focal Point—I stamped the reindeer image with Memento Black Ink onto a Whisper White Ovals Collection Framelits die-cut.  I used an Aqua Painter to color in the deer with Soft Suede for the body, Real Red for the scarf and nose, and Smoky Slate for the hooves.  I layered it only a Real Red Lots of Labels Framelits die-cut that I cut in half and positioned on the top and bottom edges of the oval.  The element is popped up with Dimensionals.

Santas Gifts - reindeer 6
Two Cool—I tried one of the three cards with the Santa image, colored in Real Red and Basic Gray, with Blushing Bride for his face.
