One of my friends who I also teach with had a birthday this past weekend. There was a birthday dinner for her at a local restaurant. Everyone was taking her a birthday card. So this was my card for her. I created my message on the computer, cut it out, and glued it to the back of the card.
When the card is standing, the message can be easily read as seen below.
Here is what the card looks lie when lying flat .
And this is what it looks like folded and lying flat.
Isn't it a fun card. All of the paper I used to make the card is from a stack called "I Love Baking" from The Paper Studio. It is such a fun stack that includes 2 alphabets, icon and word stickers, and also, tag and border stickers. The cherries are cut from a piece of glitter paper from AC Specialty.
Make sure you go over to Celebrate The Occasion and see what all of the wonderful DT members created. But most of all, please join us in the BIRTHDAY EASEL CARD challenge this week.
Here is a quick tutorial on how to make this twisted easel card.
You will need 1 sheet of 12" x 12" paper. First cut a 4" strip from one side of the paper. You will then have one 12" x 8" piece, and one 12" x 4" piece of paper. Cut the 12" x 4" into three 4" squares.
Now, take the 12" x 8" piece and place it on a score board with the 8" side at the top. The score the paper at 4" which is the center of the paper.
Now turn the paper where the 12" side is at the top of the score board and score at 4" and 8". Then cut on the 4" and 8" lines down to the center fold.
Fold each of the three top parts of the paper from corner to corner to form three triangles. These will be the easels of the card.
Glue the three 4" squares to the triangle easels, and you are set! I hope this helps. It is truly an easy card to make and yet it is so much fun to create and give to a friend!
Thanks for dropping by! Have fun making your cards.
