Santa Shaped Easel Card Tutorial

Santa Shaped Easel Card
I am very much in love with Easel cards and experimented with the mechanics of this type of card to make a shaped card.I made a Santa in a chimney card using a Santa Claus sticker.I shaped the parts of the Easel Card to give it a House Shape with a large Chimney and Santa popping out!
Santa Shaped Easel Card
Sharing a simple tutorial to make a shaped Easel Card.You can make any shaped Easel using these instructions.
Take your card stock and fold it in half. Mountain fold one half as shown. Your Easel panel will be stuck to the  free edge half [left half ]of the card stock

I stuck my Santa on card stock .

I added a Chimney shape for my Santa to pop out of and cut out the Santa and the Chimney.
Shaped Easel Card Instructions
Place your Shape on the front half of your Easel Card and trace out the shape.
Shaped Easel Card Tutorial
You can cut out the shape exactly on the front part of your card or tweak it more like I did here.I cut the lower half in the shape of a house roof. And the back of the Easel Card in a matching house shape.
Shaped Easel Card Instructions
Stick your Shape to the lower half of the front panel and your Shaped Easel Card is done!Here is how the Santa Easel looks folded flat for mailing.

And here is the Propped up Easel card shaped like a house with a chimney and Santa popping out to wish you! I have kept the embellishments fairly simple as I wanted Santa to be the prominent feature.

I hope you will find these instructions useful to adapt to your own Shaped Easel Card. Do tell me how you find it.
