Easy Christmas Tree Die Easel Card

Happy SunDIE Crafty Friends!
Today I am sharing my latest project over on the Cottage Cutz DT Blog. My card is a fun and very easy easel card I created featuring dies that are part of the new Christmas Part 1 Release by Cottage Cutz.

Here's a look at my completed card. 
It is a horizontal top folded A4 card base. I made it into a quick and easy easel card. This is a view of the card when open.

Here is a view of the card when closed.

I started by making a rosette. I cut two pieces of 1.5" x 12" of patterned paper. I then scored them length wise in .5" increments. 

I then fan folded them and then joined them together. I then glued the two ends together to make it circular. I then finished creating the rosette.

I then attached the rosette to the second largest scalloped circle die in white cardstock.

I then added a patterned paper mat onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch white cardstock base.

I then added the cute christmas tree die onto the top of the rosette. I added some cute dew drops to the tree. I used a piece of patterned paper and some ribbon to create a border along the bottom of the card face. Once it was done, I added it to the base of the card. I did this by adhering the top mat to the bottom half of the top base only. Do not glue the mat to the top half or anywhere above the fold.

I then cut a piece of patterned paper and mounted to some white cardstock. I used some foam tape to give it some lift. I then used the Merry and Christmas from the tree die. This serves as a stopper for when the card is opened. 

Here is one last look at the card. I think it turned out so pretty.

Well that about covers it for today! Until the next time, have a wonderfully craft-die day!
