Easel cards are simple to create but impressive. I used CTMH's stamp set "Father Christmas" and B&T paper pack "Believe." This was a great image to color with Copic markers. For skin tones I always use E00 Skin White first, shade with E02 Fruit Pink, then blend with E00 again. Because I wanted Santa's cheeks to be rosy, I blended in some pink here as well.
Here's a picture from the side showing the easel:
