I am still working on my Christmas cards, so for now, this will have to do. My family and friends should know that I am indeed thinking of you as I remember the blessings of this past year.
I've seen some lovely easel cards that I have admired. So, my goal for my Christmas card was to design one myself. That being said, the many steps involved in what you see here means my cards didn't hit the post office when I would have liked. However, I am quite pleased with what I settled on for the final card design.
The first image you see is the card as it is meant to be displayed. Then, the second image, just above, is how it arrives in a standard envelope. Below, I wanted to show that the easel is created by scoring the front of the card base at 2.25 inches. The card front is then attached only to the 2.25 portion you have once folded at the scored line.
The sentiment on the inside of the card is adhered with foam tape. The added dimension acts as a door stop to allow the easel card to stand. The back of the card features a stamp in the Made with Love stamp set that I just love. What a nice way to sign your work and let folks know how special they are too.
