Hi everyone get ready to see card after card after card. With so many different types of cards out there sometimes it gets difficult to keep up with. So I have gathered a group of fab ladies who will show you samples of cards from a waterfall card to an elaborate suspension card. This hop is 2 days long with different samples on both days so you wont want to miss either day. Be sure to leave a comment and become a follower on every hop in order to be eligible to win my grand prize. Some ladies will be offering individual blog candy and their rules may be different so be sure to read the specifics and make sure you have fun along the way. The blog starts at Monica's blog
I am so excited to share with you today one of my favorite cards to make The Twisted Easel card. I originally learned how to make a twisted easel card after watching the video by Mary at Cardz TV.
I then found the directions for double and triple twisted easel cards and tried these following these directions.
This is the single twisted easel card I made for today.. The rose is from Imagine More cut at 3 1/2 inches
The important part is the sentiment must be raised with dimensional dots to keep the card in place when it is standing.
The base card was cut at 5 x 10 inches and folded in 1/2
Fold the top over to make a triangle
Cut a piece 5 x 5 inches and glue to triangle
Decorate card and add dimensional dots to sentiment so card will catch in place
Double twisted base I made 8 x 8. Folded in 1/2 long ways, scored top at 4 inches and cut to center fold
Fold down to make two triangles. Cut two pieces 4 x 4 to glue on triangles
This is decorated with Imagine More and DCWV Mariposa Paper. Sorry this picture is so blurry.
For the triple easel I cut the paper 6 x 9 inches fold in 1/2 long ways and score and cut top piece at 3 and 6 ". You can fold into triangles or as I did. Cut 3 pieces 3 x 3 to glue on triangles and center fold.
For this one I used Nursery Tails, New Arrival for title and paper from stash.
Here are some more twisted easel cards I have made.
For my blog candy I will send one winner selected by Random.org a sticker pack. So please become a follower and leave a comment both the 20th and 21st so you double your chances to win.Click here
Hope to see you back tomorrow to see even more cards. Tomorrow I will be sharing a Suspension Card.
