I made the circle easel card from following this video:

After you make the card cut out the dies and place on the card. The tulips in the center I cut out twice and place the white were the tulips are. This is where I found the digi-stamps. I did spray the paper with workable fixative so it did not run with the oil pencils.  I use baby oil to blend the pencil so it was smearing the black ink.

I cut out the stamp and used foam to raise it up. Again I used the ribbon to help hold the top of the card. I put the hi there on the ribbon. Add 2 bows and you are done.

Velvet paper
Memento Angel Pink ink
I decided to make an easel card. I started with the Spellbinders Grand Rectangle. You score the paper in half and keep it folded and tape it so it just misses the cutting blades on one side.  You then fold the top part in half. Instead of cutting the rectangle again I decided to use the Grand Scalloped rectangle.  When I placed on the fold half of the card I made I noticed that the edges show below. So I trimmed about a quarter of an inch from each of the three sides. You just glue it to the top half of the card you made. You can also find a video on how to cut this.  I then cut out the Horizon Coved rectangle and placed on both. I then cut out the Horizon ovals and the Petite ovals. Then put them in place. Stamp the center of the inside oval with Winter wonderland. I then made the Winter Village Scene. Cut out with each color and then glue in the circle. I used the Inverted circle on the bottom of the winter scene. Cut out the 2012 Pendant die and place behind all of that.   I used foam Squares to raise it up. I made the Frosted tree by take the pink ink and using a dauber to color the embossed spots.  I also cut out many of the Cheery Lynn snowflakes add to the tree for ornaments. Placed the Ice crystal border. Then place the Frosted tree on top of that. I use to of the Ice Crystal and layered on top of them and place I the oval. The lower half of the card I added the ribbon so I would keep the card standing up. I add the Ice Crystals border just under the ribbon. Then take two more Ice Crystals add were you like. Take your Rhinestone and place them in the middle of all the snowflakes. The finishing touch.

Follow the tutorial I found on-line to make card. I did use a little different item. You can do many different thing in the center.
I ran my ink pad over the embossed snowflakes. When I made the snowman I use a dauber to color the raised embossed areas. I used stickle on the raised parts of the snowman and all the snowflakes on the embossing folder. The blue paper I sprayed with Spry and Sparkle Iridescent.  I add the Snowflake border to the sides of the card with rhinestones In the center of the snowflakes. I stamped the let it snow and cut it with the Deckled mega rectangles. I also shorten on side by cutting with a deckled blade. Also embossed with the Deckled rectangle. I raised the Let it snow and the snowman with foam squares. I added the snowflakes it the top of the inside of the card. I also added the Merry Christmas to the inside under the snowflake spinner.
