LLC Retreat Christmas Bell Marci Shaker Easel Card

Day 2, LLC Retreat Project #10
I love everything about this card Sue Kohler designed (her blog here). Finished card size is 5-3/4" x 5-3/4".  There is so much happening on this card!  Many La-la Land Crafts 
exclusive dies used to make this card: Stitched Nested Circles, Stitched Elements, Build-a Christmas Tree, Fancy Christmas Tree, Snowflake Banner die. All these dies can be found here. Note how cleaver the dies are being used.......can you see them? 
Color Christmas Bell Marci found here with Copic pens (thank goodness we received color direction on this at the retreat!). OK - I did change her hair to be a usual.
On top, across the card are the Stitched Nested Circle cut in half.  Finish the top off with a white grosgrain ribbon and some adhesive crystals. 
On the main part of the card are two Fancy Christmas Trees (only the bottom of the tree shows in the card).  Embellish those tree with some small adhesive rhinestones.  On the sides, the stitched label is die cut from the Stitched Elements, on top a snowflake (which is part of the Snowflake Banner die). 
Use the Stitched Nested Circles die to build the shaker, then it is filled with tiny star sprinkles.
Easel card: Love the papers used inside, too!  The tree becomes the easel which is from the Build-a Christmas-Tree die
Side view of easel card:
The Snowflake Banner is positioned across the Stitched Oval (die from the Stitched Elements).
Card inside:
 That little star is from the Stitched Elements die.
Thank you for stopping by to visit today.  Stay tuned for more projects from the LLC Retreat.
