Diamond/Star Shaped Christmas Easel

I do like easel cards, and have been working on coming up with some new shapes, this is my latest shape, quite different to the shape I came up with last week, at least I have an obvious name for this one unlike the one I did last week, which I'm not sure what to call. Once I  had finished playing about with scraps of paper for the shape and made a template it was actually a quick and easy card to make.
Star shapes made using pinflair stepper set, papers from MCS, Blue mirri from Kanban and base card Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion,  oohps took the piccy before I put "merry christmas" on to the tab I made for it.
I'm entering this into:
ces challenges - #3 easel christmas card
fab n funky challenges #39 whateva
polly craft challenge. #60 christmas with no red or green
southern girls challenge. #1  Anything Goes
our creative corner - fun with folds
bah-humbug-christmas.  favourite, too many, cutting shapes, mirri, my own easel shape.
christmas cards all year round.  Sept, non standard shape
