Christmas Easel Cards

These cards are most often called Pedestal cards, but they are more accurately "Easel" cards. Whichever you choose to call them, they are so fun to make - quick and easy, and you are only limited by your imagination for design themes! I don't have instructions available yet, but you can go to and search for Pedestal Card - there is a very good tutorial available.
The big shiny snowflake on this card is from a package of 8 that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I'm sure they are probably available at the dollar stores, too. I attached it with a big round pop dot, and it holds great. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment was cut twice on my Cricut: once in white with Stickles on top of the letters, and once in blue which I dusted with Perfect Pearls and attached a little offset to the white one. If you click on the photo, a larger one will display and scroll down to the bottom - you can sort of see the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls
I created three of these, for class purposes.
