Merry Christms from Cheery Lynn Designs!

WOW, there are only a few more days left and I still have gifts to wrap, shopping to do and cookies to bake!  But what the heck, I have to take some "me time" out of my schedule to keep my sanity so I put this pretty card together using lots of Cheery Lynn Designs dies and Graphic 45's new Seasons collection.

This is an easel card and they really are simple to make.  Now I got a little fancy with the die cut at the top and that does take a little finagling but if you do just a simple square card it's quite easy.  Here's a link showing you how to make an easel card.  It's not this card, but you can see how the mechanism works.

I used the French Flair Pierce Tool to cut the basic shape of the easel and then a smaller one to fit inside.  Next I layered on the green print Quadrafoil Square Doily 2  cut.  Next is a brown circle cut using the Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker Frames.  Behind the pretty Graphic 45 cut-apart is a white piece cut with the Square Frames 3 Piece Die Set.  It makes such a pretty frame for the cut-apart!

To make the mechanism inside the card that holds up the easel, I popped up a sticker from the Collection and placed that on a small die cut from the Nesting Doll- Oval #2 set and layered that over a decorative paper strip.  I also cut another shape with the French Flair Pierce Tool to place inside the card.
I love how easel cards stand up, they display so prettily!  To finish off my card, I made a poinsettia with the Poinsettia Strip 6 Piece Die Set and added a pretty bow.

I hope your holidays are merry and bright, filled with love of family, friends and good food!  Cheers!
