Trio of Christmas Cards with Authentique Paper – Wonder

12 Sep
Do you know how many more Christmas card making days you have left?
I estimate about 96 days, taking into account getting your cards in the mail a week before Christmas.
I have come up with 3 cards today that would be very simple to mass produce.
These are called Easel Cards.
Here is Card 1

All the patterned paper is from WONDER with the exception of my music paper, which is just from an old piano book I use for crafting.

These are such a nice card, and would be lovely to give away to the extra special people you want to give cards to this Christmas.

All 3 cards today have all the same “recipe”.

They are all 4.25″ by 5.5″, they all have a paper gathered ruffle,
(Card 2)

polka dot ribbon, embellishments using Excerpts and Icons,

words from Diction,

a custom pieced die cut with Authentique Paper,

and paper flowers and hearts made with Wonder paper.
(Card 3)

For the inside base of the card I stamped the holly stamp lightly from the Wonder of It stamp set.

The beauty of these cards are there are so many different ways to fold them when creating your easel.

I have done 1 of each, right triangle, left triangle and middle folded easels.

These did not take very long to make and if I had had everything pre-cut, I really could get a lot of these done in a short amount of time.

They look fabulous on display and can you imagine what a treat it would be to get one of these in the mail?

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today. The Wonder paper and all the things that coordinate with it are such gorgeous papers to play with. This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post. Have a great week.

    What a great idea for a card! I like the warm colors and the dark matting you used on the first one. Great details. Love ’em.
