Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  It's December so let the countdown to Christmas begin!  I know you're making seasons bright with all your creations this month!

I'm smitten with a fussy card but they're not always so simple to make.  I am always in awe and then find the directions too complicated for me to reproduce.  I love  the easel dies at Poppystamps.. they make a fussy looking card super easy to make with all the dies you need to make something extraordinary.

I mean, does it get easier than this?  You cut out all the pieces and then assemble them, and BAM! You have a gorgeous fancy fold easel card that looks fussy but isn't.

Even the inside panel is separate so you can stamp a sentiment or leave it blank for a personalized note.  This sentiment is from the Poppystamps Christmas Time stamp set.   I love the script font and heartfelt message.

I cut the snowy drifts from glitter paper.  Did you know that Memory Box has 6" pads of glitter paper?   I added some light distress inking on the birdhouse front panel to bring out the lines on the paneling.  A few half pearls make shiny red berries added to the evergreen boughs.  I used a sharpie to color the  face of the cardinal and a dot of Nuvo drops form an eye.

Easy peasy right?   Crafting doesn't need to be complicated.. it only needs to be FUN!  Hugs!

A delightful card! TFS love those colors and the pop up!

Hi Jeanne, This easel card really does look like a complicated card, but your tutorial shows that, with these dies, it can be so easy, and it really looks so beautiful, I adore this birdhouse die set.
Take care, stay safe, stay well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Love this die and your colorful card!
