Stampin’ Up more merry messages for the star of the show…

We have a new hostess for the month of April over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and, as always, the first week of the month is a sketch challenge.  Here’s my take on it…  

Christmas easel card

The sketch was just perfect for an easel card. I stamped two strips of whisper white card with snowflakes from the Festive Flurry stamp set by Stampin’ Up, then adhered one to the card topper and one across the inside of the card to match. The sentiment, popped up on dimensionals, made an ideal stopper for the easel card … 

Christmas easel three

This verse, from the More Merry Messages set by Stampin Up, is one of my favourites and is definitely the star of the show here, framed with the tulip embossing folder …
