Fireplace Easel Card & Tutorial

Now for all of those that have been following me for a Christmas or two!! I bet you can guess that where there is a Staircase Card... with Hearth & Home out and in action ... that there would soon be a fireplace card...

And yes you are right ... here is this year's Fireplace Card...
Warmth & Cheer papers... perfect for a cozy feel....

Stockings, rug greeting & NOEL from Hang Your Stocking
And holly garland, skirting board greeting & bow from Holly Berry Happiness.

Fireplace and skirting board care of the Hearth & Home dies... with the rug and greeting cut care of the Layering Ovals dies
All laid out on a simple little 14.8cm (about 5 3/4" so you guys in the US would probably be better doing a 5 1/2" card ) Simple Easel Card. Simple little easel card so a simple little card Tutorial for you!
