BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY: How to make a Thanksgiving Tea Light Easel Card


Welcome to my Stamp It Demonstrator’s Group Thanksgiving Theme Blog Hop. We’re all really excited to unveil our “sneak peek” projects, and announce a new contest give-away (below).  To continue on your journey through our projects, simply use the BLOG HOPPERS links below.


My share for our Thanksgiving Blog Hop is this super cool Stampin Up Vintage Leaves tealight easel card. It’s surprisingly easy to make, and it’s not just a card, it’s a decoration that they’ll want to leave out all season long.

I’ll share how to create this easel card, how to cut out the leaves and an easy stained glass vellum technique on this video tutorial.

Inspired by Mary Deatherage.
