Winter Noel

Welcome back!  Sunday rolls around and so do the deadlines.

First up: Sketch – Try Stampin’ on Tuesdays (#583), Color: Color Dare (#523) and Retro Rubber (#196) for Style, Tools, Technique and Embellishment. Additionally, Creative Creases (#46) as I made an Easel Card.

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (11” x 4¼” scored at 5½” and 3¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock for an Easel Card.
  • Card Front Panel: (4¼” x 5½”) Brushed Silver retired cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Winter Tree patterned pieces of paper from the retired Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Accent Diagonal Rectangle: (2” x 3½”) Brushed Silver cardstock.
  • Focal Rectangle: (2” x 3½”) Winter Tree patterned piece of paper.
  • Cross Strip: (6” x ⅜”) Silver Metallic Ribbon retired colored with the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend Marker.
  • Sentiment Shape: (1½” x 1”) Brushed Silver cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, “Noel“, from the retired Antique Tags stamp set (circa 2015) was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.
    • The, Noel, was fussy cut with Paper Snips.
  • Inside Easel Stop: (4¼” x 2¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • Sentiment Accent: (4” x 2”) Sky section of the Winter Tree patterned piece of paper.
    • The sentiment, “Wishing you love, joy & happiness this coming year”, from the retired Encircled in Warmth stamp set (circa 2021) was also stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.

The decorated, stamped Easel Stop was adhered to the bottom edge inside the card with Mini Dimesionals along the top edge.  All other elements were adhered to the card front to match the sketch.  The sentiment was popped-up with Dimensionals over the colored ribbon.

Merry Christmas.

  1. Another absolute stunner, Jolanda – I have hoarded a couple PACKS of this DSP – how did you know it was my fave, lol? Anyway, such a genius design – love the sort of spotlight of this gorgeous paper! And it’s an easel to boot – you’re amazing! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

  3. Beautiful Christmas easel card, Jolanda! I just love that DSP! Sadly I did a paper share that year so didn’t get enough of that one. I sure wish I had more of it in my stash. Thank you for playing at Creative Creases Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
