Project of the Week with Repeat Impressions~Easel Card

Hello, It is my turn for another Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions.  I am so excited to share  my project with you.  I decided to make an Easel card with a crazy quilt background. I picked this adorable penguin stamp #8801 Swinging Penguin from the Christmas Penguins stamps.  You can see all of the darling little guys here.
I wanted the card to be able to open to two different points so I added a sentiment tag attached with bakers twine.  The sentiment is  #1141 Merry Christmas  and is placed it higher on the inside.

The card is 5 X 5 1/2.  I started with a piece of white card stock that measured 5 X 11 and using my Scor Pal I scored at 3 and 5 1/2 folding both creases to the inside.
I added Scor Tape to the bottom section of the front as shown here.
For the front I grab some of my favorite Christmas papers left over from last years cards.
This is what the front looked like after I cut and arranged the scraps in a patterned I liked.  Notice I didn't worry about the center as it would be hidden behind my image.  I repeated the process for the lower panel on the inside.

I hope you enjoyed my project and are inspired to give an easel card a try. Have a fabulous and fun week.

Supplies used:
Red and green card stock
Recollections Sugar Plums designer paper
