Easel Christmas Card

I'm back! I decided to try something new today - an easel card! I have never made one of these before but I see them all over Pinterest and I really wanted to try one. It wasn't difficult, but more time consuming than anything else as I was learning as I was making it. 
The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week was to make something for Christmas so this is a Christmas card, plus it uses the sketch from the Mojo Monday Challenge, so it meets two challenges. One thing about doing a scalloped easel card is that it is difficult to get it to line up properly as the scallops have to line up so you are limited with how the card has to fit on the background. Knowing that for next time, I would check the alignment before I began working on the card! 
The Mojo Monday Sketch is below the card.  


Supplies are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted: 

Paper: Avonlea Paper Pack (include cardstock available only with that paper pack), Slate Cardstock
Stamps: Perfect Fit - Holidays, Blessings of Peace
Inks: Slate, Twilight Pigment Ink
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (not CTMH), Baker's Twine - Neutral Assortment, Clear Sparkles, 1 1/4 Inch Punch, Green Ribbon (not CTMH), Copic Markers (not CTMH), Foam Tape, Prisma Glitter, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Foam Tape
