Turn your card designs into a festive centrepiece with a fabulous star easel card. This graphic fold looks complicated, but is in fact two panels that are easily slotted together, making it perfect for sending in the post, too! To create a star easel, you simply need to create a folded triangle base, and add two slits to either side. You then place a layered panel made from two triangles into the slots on the base, which creates the five points of the star. Clare used the Let It Snow collection of papers from Kaisercraft to decorate her three designs, mounting the papers onto complementary grey bases. She then added silver die-cut stars, snowflakes and sparkly gems to finish off the metallic theme. Star easel cards aren’t just for Christmas, though! This simple…

Everything coordinates, so you really can’t go wrong! I die cut and coloured the gingerbread cottage, plus the windows and the door detail. I also die cut a cute penguin and candy canes, poinsettia and holly, then added lots of white glitter to finish. For the second card, I coloured the baubles blue to bring out the colour of the background papers. I love the doily die cut and…
