An Easel Card

I've had a go at an easel card. The first one I managed to mess up the folding (goodness knows how as they're not difficult but I tried to do a diagonal easel and folded it upside down - oops! So I gave up on that idea and went for a straight folded easel card instead!).
I used a Jolly Nation decoupage kit for this card; the paper, santa and present are all from the kit. I used an embossing folder for the strip of presents and I made the Christmas tree with a stencil. I used a spotty embossing folder and just lightly pressed the Christmas tree onto it, then inked the tree with some bronze ink and topped it off with a star from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
