A Twisted Easel- day two

Kathy ThistedCards, Techniques1 Comment

Fir my second twisted easel card, I decide to try something different. All the single twisted easel cards I could find were made to fit in a square envelope. Now, not to be cheap or anything but I would rather spend my money on gifts of card embellishments rather than pay extra to the post office just because the envelope is square. So I wanted to make a single twisted easel card that fir in an A2 envelope.

Here is what I came up with all set up. I started with a landscape card front then cut a base  ( 9.75” by 4.25”) from the same color as my main color in my card front. I scored the base at 5.5”, then scored diagonally across the 4.25” square section of my base. I attached the card front so that closed it looked just like a standard landscape card.

For the final element of this card, I used the ‘hello’ greeting from the new hostess set in the Summer Mini. Punched with the large oval punch and matted in black punched with the  scallop oval punch it was a perfect finish to this card.
