Polar Party Easel Cards

I bought these mini easel frames a couple of months ago, knowing that I could make something different with them - only I had put them in a "safe" place and had to hunt around for a few days to find them!!

As time was running out, I have only made this style of card for Lucy and Philip.

I have used the pretty hostess Cheerful Treat papers for Lucy's card, I love these papers!! The colours are Whisper White, Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant.

A close up of the detail, I covered the stocking and candy cane with Crystal Effects to give them a glossy button like finish.  The cute penguins were coloured with Stampin' Write makers, I punched them out with the Four Frames punch and some Dazzling Diamonds added for "sparkly" snow.

For Philip's card I stamped the polar bear, again coloured with the Stampin' Write markers, the colours are Whisper White, Real Red and Pool Party.

I made some bunting for the top of this card and added a piece of Pool Party ruffled ribbon at the bottom.  I'm sure you can't miss the super sparkly red paper - but you will have to wait until 4th January to find out more!!
