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:
Guipure lace, Lt. Beige Seam Binding, Pink Hellebores, 25mm open roses, 15mm open rose, Cream Aster Daisies, and 3mm self adhesive pearls
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!
