Twisted Easel Card!


Hello there! I would like to show you a little twist on the easel card.  That is exactly what it is called "Twisted Easel Card".  I first saw this on Marlene's blog and found this video tutorial HERE.  This is a Valentine card for my daughter, who made sure I knew she expected a card from me. haha! 
I have loaded this card up with all my favorite Wild Orchid Craft items. Here are the items I used:

 Don't you love the new color of this Hellebores?  Such a soft, sweet pink.  I used some leftover pieces of the Guipure lace as accents.  I don't throw anything away!

You can see that I made the bottom piece a pocket and tucked a message to Alyssa in it.  There just wasn't enough room for a good message.  You pull it out with the seam binding ribbon.

Here is another view so you can see how it folds.
I colored my sweet Hanglar with distress inks and the papers are Making Memories - Je t'adore.  I used a Magnolia Doohickey die also.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hugs, Dena
