Twisted Easel for PCC




Happy Monday and welcome to another magical Monday with Paper Cupcakes....our challenge this week, issued by Jenn Cochran is to create a card using your choice of any multi fold card and I am sure you are aware there are quite a few out in cyber land to choose from. One of my all time favs is the easel card and I have been wanting to try a twisted easel card and this was the perfect time to give it a try. I had so much fun making this card!
I used Nina's beautiful image "Tulips" and you can find the challenge here and a link to the store if you would like to purchase this image.
This first photo shows my card closed and this is the card sitting up:

My papers are from Prima's pack "madeline" and I used my Stampin' Up markers to color the image. Now that Easter is over, I am going to try and get some Mother's Day cards made to sell. I also want to show you a close up of the image which I cut out using my Spellbinders Peony dies. The only different thing about this card is to make sure your image will be positioned correctly when closed and open, especially with an image that needs to be upright. I hope you will check out our challenge this week and play along, I know a lot of you our there make some beautiful multi fold cards.


I am also entering this in the challenge at   Our Creative Corner where they want you to make an easel card. Was so happy to see this ....worked with this card but I would have played anyways, any excuse to make an easel card. lol

This is stunning, what a wonderful card, I have not tried the twisted easel, but after seeing your card, I may have to try it. The way you have that pretty image is perfect for this fold. Beautiful.

This is absolutely lovely! I'm not a huge fan of easel cards but this one is really terrific. Your paper is beautiful and that image is really wonderful. Your doily or paper lace edging is wonderful too. Terrific take on the easel card challenge. So happy you joined in our fun this week at Our Creative Corner!

Also, thanks for all your other projects that you have created that I haven't had the time to stop by and leave a personal comment on. I truly have enjoyed them all!
