Snowfriends Easel Card


There are two things I love about this card. First, this is one of my favorite CTMH seasonal stamp sets. It's called Snowfriends and it is a set of the most adorable snowmen. The second thing I love about this card is the way it displays your artwork. I got the instructions from Splitcoaststampers Technique Monday where the template was so generously shared by Penny Wessenauer. You can find the instructions HERE.

I know that I will be making these often. The first easel card I made involved a digi stamp and I am waiting for the artist to give me the go ahead to post. In the meantime, let me tell you a little about this card. The snowman image was stamped in Black Soot Distress Ink and then colored with copics. I added some glitter to the snowballs and Polar White Flower Soft on the bottom to look like snow. The snowflakes were made with a Martha Stewart punch and then embossed with polysparkle EP. I then layered them with snowflake brads to which I added stickles. The white fiber is a clearance find from the LSS. For my brace, I popped up my sentiment but as a variation for your easel cards, you could also use a brad or a button. As for the background, I made it using impressabilities, ink and perfect pearls. I hope to have a tutorial on how I did it sometime next week so please check back.

I hope you'll give making one of these a try.


  1. Great card! The Snow Friends guys are some of my favorites too. :) And I really like how you designed your easel card. The snowflakes in the background are just perfect with the stamped image.
