Christmas in 2021


Card size: 5 x 7 1/2". Start with folded white cardstock measuring 5 1/2 x 7 1/2" (folded size). Lay outer die of the Holiday Snowflake Frame about 1/2" over the top fold and cut. Cut off the decorative edges (you will cut a new front and a new inside later. And score the top side again in the center (about 2 3/16” from previous score line). Fold the top down toward center fold. This is the base of the easel card.

Cut 2 more outer die frames from white and sponge the edges, including flakes, with Sky Blue Brilliance ink. Glue 1 to the top (match bottom edges and only glue the folded down portion) then glue the other to the card inside, you will have to trim the top of the inside die cut off a little to match bottom and side edges. Cut 5 simple snowflakes and 3 of the more ornate snowflakes from white. Glue snowflakes and pop up some of them along top edge of front and the bottom corners of the inside.

Stamp the truck back image 2 times using black, die cut full image of 1 and die cut the truck only of the second image. Stamp birds using black and die cut. Stamp some Festive Poinsettias (smallest size) at least 6 blossoms using Vermillion then sponge with Carnation Red. Stamp leaves using Fern Green then sponge with Leaf Green, die cut, sponge the backs and form. Form Poinsettias at the same time using the molds. Stamp sentiment using VersaFine Red and emboss with clear powder on white cardstock then die cut with Eyelet Oval and Basics Large. Color images that have not been sponged using Alcohol Markers such as Copic. Only color truck cut separately as the other truck on full image will be covered.

With the outside die of the Royal Gateway cut from gray decorative paper and from foam sheet to pop up. Glue the 2 cuts together then glue them to the center (horizontally) of the front but the bottom should be at the bottom of the card front. Cut the decorative part of the Royale Gateway die from gray decorative paper and from Luxe Silver, glue together offset. Also cut from both silver and gray, a decorative mat for the sentiment using Elaborate Oval Frames Die Set, glue them together offset. For the gate, fold gate open and sponge the back of opened gate with Hickory smoke gray Distress Oxide Ink. 

Glue the full truck/homestead image and a strip of white for the bottom of image to continue the snow look, to the gate frame on the card front, pop up the truck image that was cut separately (use pop-up deminsionals or foam sheet). Now glue the opened gate to the gate frame over image, the truck should be about centered in the open gate. Glue the birds to the top left side of the gate post.

For each poinsettia, glue 2 blossoms together, stagger petals, then insert 5 yellow Beaded Stamen and surround the stamen with yellow Prills.

Find the right place for keeping the card open then glue the popped up sentiment in the center to keep it open. Add poinsettia and leaves as well, they will help keep the card open for display and help keep the gates open to view truck.

Die cut 2021 from Luxe Silver using the small number dies and glue them to the tail-end of the truck. Glitter the flowers with Rajni’s Crystal Clear and glitter the card edges and snow with UltraFine Crystal Transparent glitter. Card can close for mailing but it will be thick because of the flowers.
