Sideways Easel Card

As I’ve been diligently making Christmas cards this month, I thought I’d join in with Hjerteboden’s Juleblogg Challenge, i.e. to make at least three Christmas cards each month. New for this year is that there’s a special theme each month and for January at least one of the cards needs to be non quadratic. So for this, Christmas Card No 5, I decided to make an Easel Card, but I thought I’d try something new and therefore made a sideways Easel, following Tina’s Tutorial.

This post is rather picture intensive…though I love making Easel cards, I find it very difficult to take pics of them. Didn’t help either that today is a grey & gloomy day…
