Peace die - When This Christmas - easel card

Yogi here today with an easel card and a watercolored stamped image using my Misti...

I'm using an A Way With Words die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Peace"  also available on Quietfire Design HERE
I'm using a  quote  stamp  from Quietfire Design  

Scored, die cut (Spellbinders Grand Labels 23) and folded my dark blue Bazzill Monochromatic card to create the easel. Die cut another piece for my front. To create the easel: I folded my cardstock in half and then die cut both layers together in an "Off the Edge" technique to avoid cutting the half's apart.

I used my Misti tool, inked the Penny Black "Berry Kissed" stamp with various Distress mini pads in appropriate colors on 90# Arches HP watercolor paper. Spread the inks around with a paint brush and water adding more color where needed. Added some background color, wet on wet technique. Die cut with the next size of Grand Labels 23. Sponged the edges with a dirty blue sponge. Added Glossy Accents to the berries.

Ran the Stormy Pad over my bluish die cut word "Peace" (
"Peace"  also available on Quietfire Design HERE). Applied Versamark and clear embossed.

Tied some brown/white butcher twine around the upper right edge and tied a bow. Adhered to front.

On the floor:

Die cut another white layer, sponging the edges with the blue and adhering to floor.

Stamped the quote (
"When This Christmas...") on white cardstock inking with Versafine "Satin Red" all over and hitting here and there with "Blue Lagoon". Clear embossed. Die cut with the largest of Labels 23. Sponged stormy sky around the edges. Added a crease/fold in the upper area to act as my stopper.

Created a silhouette image of my holly stamp Sheena Douglas "Holly",  electronically cut it from white cardstock (just fussy cut around your stamped image if you don't have an electronic cutter...), then inked my stamp with green, red and brown, stamped then clear embossed. Used the same colors of Distress pads and painted it in. Cut it apart where needed and adhere to both sides.
