Time with a Friend

Hello crafty friends. I wanted to make a little something different this week, so today I have a Twisted Easel card.
I LOVE this 6 x 6 patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye. It is so feminine looking and made this card super easy.
Grab your Scor-Pal, paper and Scor-Tape and

Let’s Make a Card…

Cut heavy card stock (I use watercolor paper) at 9 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches.
This card will end up as a standard size card for mailing.

Score at 5 1/2 inches. On the smaller side, you will want to score the card on the diagonal. Use your bone folder to make a sharp crease. I intentionally made the picture below look 
dark so you could see the lines on the card scored at an angle.

Decorate inside of the card as desired by layering patterned paper that has been matted to fit the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 section. Attach to base card.

For the outside of the card (the smaller section). You will want to mat your patterned paper sized for 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and dry fit to one side of the diagonal section (so you have the pattern going in the direction you want). Attach to card base.

Picture above shows Scor-Tape attached to one side of the diagonal fold. Picture below shows the matted diagonal section from the back side.

Below picture shows how the card will look closed.

Decorate front as desired. On this card I used a couple of die cuts, sentiment and goosebumps. I used a paper flower colored with copics as a “stopper” on the inside of the card (Shown below).

Behind the flower is a nice size area to write a personal sentiment.
