Final Fun Fold Friday: Twisted Easel Card

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for visiting me today! I hope you're all doing well. Today I have another Fun Fold Friday card for you. This will be the last Fun Fold Friday card. I've had a great time creating these unique cards and sharing them with you; but I think I've done all I can. Next month, I'll start a new weekly focused theme. What will I be doing? Well...you're just going to have to come back next week to find out!!

For this Fun Fold, I decided to do the Twisted Easel Card. Now, you can do a double or single twisted card. I decided to keep things simple and I just did the single one. This is another card that I like because it has a unique fold; but still lays flat for easy mailing.


I chose Scarlett Jewel, Fine Linen, Autumn Rose and Ocean Tide (from PTI) card stock for my color palette. Once again, I used some stamps from Verve for the front. I used the "Enjoy Today" sentiment from "Rise Above" along with the coordinating die cut. I embossed the sentiment with Enchanted Gold embossing powder from Ranger 


I layered the card as shown and then moved on to the inside of the card. Now, in order to have the card stay open, you have to put some type of "stopper" there. I made some layered paper flower using some sizzix dies I've had for years. I wanted to add a simple sentiment to the inside and decided on the "Happy Birthday" sentiment that I found in "Poppy Birthday" also from Verve Stamps


Once again, I found watching a video a little easier than following written instructions. I chose this one from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. She has great videos!
