Welcome to the Make My Monday challenge #192 for this two weeks.  The theme for this challenge is to pick a favorite challenge from 2022.   I couldn’t resist using the Adorable Owls stamp set from the current Sale-a-Bration promotion.  Therefore, I chose the something with wings challenge from November 22, 2022.  When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to see the themes chosen and cards made by the rest of the design team..

Here’s my card:


Yes, this is another twisted easel card.  You can see a couple of others I created here.

Once I finished this baby boy card, I really wanted to make a baby girl card.  However, I used the Elephants on Parade stamp set instead.

Here’s the baby girl card:


Since the baby boy owl card meets the challenge theme, I’m using the directions for that 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.

Since this is a fun fold, I will be submitting it to the Creative Creases challenge!


  • Balmy Blue 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 this card, this is the two Balmy Blue pattern pieces of DSP (designer series paper).
  • 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.
  • TA-DAH! You’ve created a twisted easel fun fold card. This card will fit in a medium SU! envelope.

The Owls:

  • Stamp the sentiment for the front and inside of the card. The sentiments comes from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set.
  • Crop the sentiments. For the front, I used one of the square dies from the Stylish Shapes die set. I also cropped a small banner from silver foil to layer under the sentiment. I stamped the inside sentiment in the corner in Night of Navy directly on the white cardstock.
  • The sentiment placed diagonally was also stamped in Night of Navy and cropped using a rectangle die.  
  • Please note that the angle of the standing easel will depend on the placement of your inside sentiment.
  • Add dimensionals on the reverse of the front and inside sentiments, especially needed for the inside sentiment.
  • I used my clear Wink of Stella pen to outline each of the cropped sentiments.  
  • Then, I stamped the owls using Night of Navy ink. The bowtie is colored with the dark Night of Navy blend.  I used a white gel pen to outline the bowtie.
  • I used the light Balmy Blue blend to color the eyes.
  • The cropped white oval comes from the Framed Florets die set.
  • While I had the florets dies out, I cropped two sprays from DSP and a third one from silver foil.
  • Next, I colored and cropped the butterfly and balloon using the Elephants on Parade bundle.
  • I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere the oval and sprays.
  • Then, I used dimensionals to adhere the owls, butterfly, balloon, and front sentiment.
  • Finally, I added blue gems to the front and the inside sentiment.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated twisted easel card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
