Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you a Twisted double easel card which I made during a workshop with the Talented Gwen at The Stamp Pad. I definately would not have attempted this on my own at home! 


We started with an A5 card blank. The papers are from First Editions 'New Leaf' pad.  The construction was fairly simple, we cut the front of the card approx 2.5" from one end. The smaller section was then scored in half  horizontally, the larger section scored corner to corner. The it was just a case of decorating a matching panel for each 'easel' and then attaching then to the card base. The bottom of the card was then covered with another paper from the stack and then a border of cardstock and ribbon was attached using foam pads to act as a stop for the upright panels. We used the Sizzix framlets die on the larger panel, and then decorated with coordinating stickers from Simply Creative.

I hope this has been easy for you to follow.

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Gorgeous card - I have had a go at both of those techniques on separate cards...but never together - it looks great.
