Magnolia, Tilda with Heart Lace and Twisted Easel tutorial…

I had to try my hand at another twisted easel card.

Here’s a close up of this cutie Tilda… she makes me smile!

Tilda with Heart Lace is from the NEW, You Are So Special Collection.  I also used the Happy Birthday stamp, the Mini Zig Zag and Scalloped Lace die,  the Romantic Lace die and the Romantic Lace Tag all from that same NEW collection. I also used the Doohickey’s Swirl die.

How I made this Twisted Easel Card…

  • first I made the 6×6 card front, colored the image, layered it up, etc

  • then the card base as follows in the photos below…

  • now you will score your “in half” fold and your diagonal with your bone folder so you have nice, sharp folds and it will look like the next photo
  • decorate the base so it holds your easel in place when it’s open.  Oh and I should say the card folds flat for mailing!  cool!

The Martha Stewart Score board is awesome!  I love the 1/8 in. marks all the way across and I love making my own 6×6 envelopes.   The pattern paper is from a Basic Grey 6×6 paper pad… the orange card-stock is from Stampin Up… it really is orange/pumpkin, not red.  I used Copic Sketch Markers to color Tilda… skin is E000, 00, 01, 21,  hair is E50, 51, 53, 55, 57,  dress is BV0000, 000, 00, 01, 02, 04,  shadowed a little with C00 and C1.  oh her shoes are E43, 44, 47 and the grass is a crazy mess of greens!!! lol

Have FUN with this “twist” on the Easel card!!!  ttul!

Stamps and Such…

  1. So pretty Pam. Have I told you how jealous I am of you? I know, bad Tracy. You put so much into your cards. All the details are so perfect and never overdone. And the coloring, that’s where I get even more jealous. You know how perfect I think it is. Love the shading of her purple dress.

    Have a nice evening. Hugs…Tracy 🙂

  20. Is that what the triangular piece of plastic is for? I wondered and didn’t have a clue! The card is perfect, as always, Pam, and the tutorial is so appreciated. Now, I’ll have to give this a try, too! *sigh* The never ending card drove my brain crazy until I figured out the flips and turns, LOL! I love the papers and colors on your card, but most of all, I love your Tilda!

  24. LOVE this card, I hope I can find some time today to make one of these — at least the “base” part. I love the coloring on your Matilda. I’ve never used Copics nor do I have any…but I do have watercolor pencils and such but I’m TERRIBLE at coloring things – drat! LOL. Beautiful card, for sure!

  25. I fell in love with your swivel card…and I really appreciate you taking the time to share a how to….as I am trying to spread my card making wings out…and get away from the simple fold in half cards.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
