Well the long awaited tutorial …. it’s a Double Twisted Easel Card.
You will have to scroll down further to see the tutorial …. Click on card to see larger image.
The double twisted easel card lends itself perfectly for a sentiment and an image …. not sure about you but I struggle sometimes about where to put the sentiment.
Sentimental Sundays has opted for a colour challenge this week, they want to see pink, red and white on your projects. Our sponsor this week is Maljen’s Designs and I chose to make a Get Well Soon card because I fell in love with the Sick Little Bear image which you can find here isn’t he the cutest.
Have done a little bit of colouring and paper piecing on the image, two sentiments on the card one stamped (my favourite Penny Black) and the other an adorable sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs and OMG going off the subject a bit here but Ann V has designed the most delish Postage Stamps Sentiments you have ever seen …. I WANT THEM …. I NEED THEM …. sorry bit carried away but I do oh so want them as you can tell …. anyway you can find the stamps here. Don’t forget to check out what you can win when you enter and have a look at all the DT girls inspiration this week it is awe inspiring.
Entering for : Allsorts Challenge -It’s all about the sentiment

Steps 1 and 2
Cut a 20 x 20 cm square card and score at 10cm (the middle)
Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 10cm mark but only score half way (to the other score line)
Cut a tiny slither out of the card (about 2 mm) as shown in the diagram
Score diagonally from the outside corner in towards the middle as shown in the diagram for both sides
Please check the diagram to make sure your diagonal scores are correct
Step 3 and 4
Fold over both the diagonal scores as shown and really crease with a bone folder (what I use is a little rubber roller)
They should both look like the second diagram
Steps 5 and 6
Turn the card over and lay flat again, adhere tape to the triangle sides as shown in the diagram
Turn card over to the right side, fold in half and raise up triangles as shown in second picture
Steps 7 and 8
Cut two pieces of cardstock 10 x 10 cm
and attach to the triangle pieces as shown
Wahoo if all goes well you should end up making a beautiful card …. I would oh so love to see the cards you make so please leave a comment because I will pop on over and have a look.
