A distressed, snowy and blingy easel card!

Good Tuesday to you all!

Here comes a new Christmas card from me, been in a Christmasy mood lately and with the brand new stamps and papers from Magnolia I'm just in heaven! The stamps are sooo adorable and those papers are so yummy! My sewingmachine has gone warm on this card lol, I just love that look with the distressing. I've actually managed to cover 5 challenges(!!!) with this card, that's pretty good I think! :) I've made an EASEL CARD which is this weeks challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
Cupcake Craft Challenge they want to see SNOW in some form on your card and at Allsorts Challenge they want you to bring out the BLING. Last but not least, at Just Magnolia and Everybody-Art-Challenge they want to see DISTRESSING on your project and here is what I came up with:
Here the card lies folded together. I've made a solution to keep it together (got pictures further down) so it easily can be mailed to the recipient.

Here's some pictures of the standing EASEL CARD from different angles

The sentiment I've used is from Ladybugandfriends and the sentiment says "A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year". As you can see I've used one of the snowflakes to support the card when it stands.

I chose to decorate the back of the card too, but I made it very simple using a paper doily. I've put on a pair of snaps to close the card so it can lie flat.

A little closeup on the closing mechanism

This is the bottom of the card, or the back when it's closed together. Decorated with some snowflakes, brown strawthingy (never remember the name..) and my personal stamp
Painted with Distress Ink Refills
CS: Bazzill
DP: Magnolia
Stamps: Magnolia So Jolly Collection, Ladybugandfriends
Accessories: Sewing machine, sandingblock and edgescraper from Making Memories, Cats eye Chalk, Maya Road Chipboard snowflake, pearls from Kort og Godt, brown stringything from Panduro, Martha Stewart snowflakepunch and glitter, vintage buttons from Ebay, paper doily, stickles from Ranger, string and snaps from my stash.

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments, you guys are the best!
