Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our blog hop theme is Sale-a-Bration! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals have made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I used the SAB owl stamp set (earn with a $50 purchase), a piece of window sheet, and the Dainty Flowers DSP (earn with a $50 purchase). I’ve made two twisted easel cards for you, both of which use the Dainty Flowers DSP.
Here are my twisted easel cards:
The above card turned out to be much more involved than. I originally planned. Therefore, I created a second card for you to see how just trimming and scoring the DSP and cardstock can turn these papers into a beautiful card. Honestly, the DSP does all the work.
Here’s my second card:
There are so many videos for creating a twisted easel card. The one I saw a few weeks ago incorporated a book binding side, which I really liked. I can’t for the life of me find the original video I watched, and I am sorry for that problem.
For simplicity purposes, I am including the measurements and directions for the second card on this post. I’ve already got all the pieces cut for two more twisted easel cards, so I will include in progress pictures for one of them.. Actually, you are getting a sneak preview of my Make My Monday Challenge design team card going live on Monday, 01/16/2023.http://mmmchallengeblog.blogspot.com/
Since this is a fun fold, I will be submitting it to the Creative Creases challenge!
- Rich Razzelberry cardstock base trimmed to 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches.
- Score the base along the long side at 5-1/2 and 6-1/2 inches.
- Next, score the 4-1/2 by 4-1/4 inch rectangle diagonally as shown in the picture below:
- Please note that this is the inside view.
- Trim two pieces of DSP to 4-3/8 by 4-1/8 inches. Trim one of the pieces diagonally to use for the back of the standing easel. For the example card, this is the Old Olive piece of DSP.
- Trim DSP to 7/8 by 4-1/8 inches for the bookbinding on the front.
- Next, trim a piece of white cardstock for the inside to 4-1/8 by 4-3/8 inches.
- Finally, trim a piece of DSP for the envelope flap to 6 by 2-1/2 inches.
- Adhere the bookbinding piece on the inside of the card. The picture below shows the placement of the adhesive for both the bookbinding part and the white cardstock on the inside.
- I wrapped a piece of Old Olive ribbon around the piece of DSP for the bookbinding section on the front of the card.
- Adhere the bookbinding piece to the front using dimensionals to allow for the ribbon.
- Adhere the triangle piece of DSP to the outside of the card as shown below:
- Adhere the whole rectangle of DSP to the bottom triangle on the outside of the card as shown below:
- Please note that you only put adhesive on the bottom portion of the triangle. The top half of the DSP should not be adhered.
- Stamp the sentiment for the front and inside of the card. The front sentiment comes from the Framed Florets stamp set.
- Crop the sentiments. For the front, I used one of the square dies from the Stylish Shapes die set. The inside sentiment was also cropped using the banners from the Stylish Shapes dies.
- Add dimensionals on the reverse of the sentiments, especially needed for the inside sentiment.
- Please note that the angle of the standing easel will depend on the placement of your inside sentiment.
- TA-DAH! You’ve created a twisted easel fun fold card. This card will fit in a medium SU! envelope.
- With that, I’d finished this coordinated twisted easel card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
