Crazy for Challenges – Easel card

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, hope you’re all having a good week so far and to everyone who went to the NEC, I hope you had a great time!
This is one of the sample cards I made for the Craft Barn with another lovely Motivet stamp which they now have available and the easel style which I think is my favourite at the moment lets me enter it into the Crazy for cards challenge.  The colouring is with copic markers and the paper is Eskimo Kisses by BasicGrey. I’ve cut a nestie label shape for the bottom of the card and added a Craftwork Cards sentiment. The snowflakes are punched with a Martha Stewart punch and I added some wide ribbon and stickles to finish. TFL.

Love this card Chris, how clever to use a nestie on the base, thanks for that (I seem to be making rather a lot of these cards at the moment!)
