Twisted Easel Card

Its nearly the weekend, YEY!

I have been travelling around for work this week so not had chance to do that much but here is a card I made using some of the items I had set aside from my crop last week.

Its a twisted easel card and there seem to be lots of them around lately so I cant take any credit for the main design.

The top flowers were done using the 'kissing' technique using Bella Toile and the Flower Accent stamps.  The plum coloured flowers underneath were made using the water spot technique.

To get the twisted shape for the card blank I took a piece of A4 card and trimmed off a 4" strip from the long length and scored it in half.  Then I measured 4" down from one side of the score line and scored from this point back to the main score line.  Once you crease and fold the two score lines you will get the twisted shape - simples!

Cardstock = Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum and Whisper White
Ink = Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum
Stamps = Flower Accent, Bella Toile, tiny triple flower from Cottage Garden and Occasional Greetings.
Punches = Eyelet Border, Designer Label Large, 1 3/8 - 5/8 Oval Large.
Accessories = Basic Pearls, Whisper White Taffeta ribbon
I have seen double twisted easel cards too but haven't had the chance work out how they are done yet - may need to have a play this weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
