Let It Snow Easel Card

I've been dreaming of cooler weather - well I have to dream because it's still quite warm where I live. I love cold weather and this little snowman playing with snowballs makes me want to grab a sweater and some hot cocoa!

The card folds into a regular size for mailing. The die cut holds the flap in place to stand it up. Under the flap is a place for you to write your own message.



I was inspired by Jo Anne Hewins' card

Measurements for this card:  

Card Base: Cut 8-1/2" x 11". Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

"Mini Card": Cut 3-1/4" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/2". Add a piece of Designer Series Paper to the front after you fold it on the score line. Attach to the 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" portion of the card base.

Fold the card base in a mountain style along the score lines.

Attach a piece of Designer Series Paper or dry embossed card stock (2-1/2" x 4") to the front of the card. Use any punch or die cut to hold the mini card by attaching the shape with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Decorate the Mini Card and the small front panel with the punch any way you like. 

Fold the mini card behind the small front portion for mailing. 

I hope you enjoy my directions.

Hi! Would it be possible for you to give the link you used for the template of this card? There are a lot of them out there, but I've never seen quite this method used. I would really appreciate it! Thank you Patti.

I like this fold, giving more of a card than 2 folds

Cute card! I love snowmen of every shape and size. I am going to try and teach my stamping ladies how to make an easel card this weekend. A snowman one would be perfect for them! Thanks for sharing!
