A different kind of fold

Just Us Girls – Wild Card Challenge #560

I had seen a variation of this twisted easel card on Pinterest and eventually followed one of the links to find out how to it was done. This is my first attempt and because I used 2 word die cuts it actually fits the challenge at JUGs this week although initially it wasn’t made with any challenge in mind. It is a larger card so will cost a bit more to mail, but I like the end result and all the scraps leftover gave me a similar but smaller designed card. The inspiration came from here, but I found some instructions here. Basically you use a 12″ by 6″ piece of card stock and you score at 6″. The twisted part you score from corner to corner on the diagonal. PP is from designsbyreminisce.com For the snowflake panel I used some scrap cs and stamped it randomly with snowflakes and backed it with some gold paper. The Xmas tree is a die from Essentials and comes in 2 pieces and I used some scrap pp to cut the word tree part and added it to the darker gold base. To hold the easel up I used a button and some canvas with thread pulled through and tied into a bow. Then I cut the Happy Holidays using another die from Essentials. Of course any subsequent card looks better because once I’ve practiced the how, other cards are easier to make.

  2. Thanks Gayle – I think fun folds are one of my niches in creativity, although I can’t come up with my own fold.

  3. Thanks – I enjoyed making this card and the subsequent smaller version. All I’m doing lately is Christmas cards and if they fit a challenge they get entered. I should have started earlier but as usual it will be a rush to complete them all.

  4. Fun card with the fold. There is a double twisted easel tutorial on Split coast Stampers you might enjoy. I think it is the same concept, just two pieces in the air.

    1. I know that feeling – on occasion I see something that stays in my mind until I’ve tried a version of my own. Thanks.
