Stamp Fairy Challenge # 33 Christmas in July with an Easel Card

Hello and a Beautiful Monday Morning to ya!

Our new challenge theme for this week at Stamp Fairy Challenge blog is

Christmas in July with an Easel Card

Oh, as hot as it has been here this past week, it was really fun to think cold, snow and frost for
a bit while I was creating my card for this weeks' challenge

Oh I just love these beautiful colors on this Scenic Route  Belleville Blizzard paper.
Did you notice my easel within an easel fold ( I found this great tutorial while hopping around blog land and I am so sorry but did not write down the blog address to give proper credit) but it is super easy to do and makes a wonderful fold for a scenery card.

I used Lenny Christmas which you can find in the Christmas/winter collection

Here is a side view as you can see I simply added a 5 1/2 x 5x 1/2 scored it in half then scored the on side again in half - added it to my bottom layer to create a additional stair fold.

Hop on over to the challenge blog to see all the Wonderful Easel cards featuring
Christmas in July from the wonderful design gals
We hope we will inspire you to join us this week as we would love to see your
Christmas Easel Cards using Stamp Fairy images.

sharing a creation I made using the newly released Back to School Lenny images
