Easel eCut Snowflakes - Good Friends are Like Snowflakes

Yogi here today with a snowflake card. Love the eCut files from Suzanne and I love easel cards...

card closed
Folded my white cardstock in half and used my EK Success circle scissors to cut a 5" diameter circle from both layers at once, cutting it shy of the top fold. Folded the top circle in half to create the easel.

Cut another circle the same size. Stamped the fir trees (Impression Obsession CAC "Pine Trees") inking with various Distress greens and black, misting with water, then stamping. Adhered circle to easel front.

ecut the snowflakes from white cardstock. While on the mat, hit with Distress "Tumbled Glass", removed from mat. Stamped the Italic Alphabet (double stroke Capitals set for the "J" & "O", regular set for the "Y") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing. Then applied Versamark into the star area only and clear embossed again. Used a Quickie glue pen on the prongs and sprinkled with Stampendous "Crystal Snow" glitter. Adhered the snowflakes to the card front. Added mini red rhinestones on the center snowflake.

On the floor, I sponged "Worn Lipstick" all over. Adhered a piece of stain ribbon and a piece of rickrack red glitter ribbon to the floor.

Stamped the quote "Good Friends are like Snowflakes" on white cardstock, die cut with Spellbinders oval die set, sponged a bit of the red around the edges. adhered to floor with 3D foam tape. Added a few white pearl flourishes.

The pine trees are a die cut from my stash (sorry don't know from where...) sponged with greens. I added a small easel on the back to make the trees stay upright and adhered to floor.
