Twisted Easel card Tutorial

Twisted Easel Card Tutorial
By Yvonne Tune Card Art

1.    Cut a sheet of A4 card 15cm by 29 ½ cm and score on the A4 half fold line.

2.    Draw a line from the top left hand corner to the bottom right hand corner diagonally, (as shown in picture )

3.    Place the drawn line over a score line on your score board, and score through the drawn line, using the score line on your score board, as a guide.

4.  Fold the diagonal line and give it a nice tight crease with a bone folder.

5.    Stick double-sided tape to the triangle

5. Cut a 15cm Sq panel and stick this to the triangle

6. Back view of main panel stuck to the twisted easel.

7. Easel propped open
(You do not normally see the diagonal line this picture has a sun shadow)

To Decorate

1.   Follow the instructions on the Twisted easel tutorial sheet, to prepare the easel card.
2.   Stick the blue printed papers 13cm Sq  to the silver 14cm Sq panels, and stick the Gingham panel to the floor of the easel and the blue Plaid to the front panel.
3.   Cut out the decoupage sheet, cut the main image as small as you can and stick to the blue then silver card allowing a ½ cm boarder each time. build up the decoupage layers with foam pads.
4.   Stick the topper to the top left hand corner, allowing a 1cm boarder so that you can still see the plaid paper behind.
5.   Cut out the poem as small as you can, and stick to the blue then silver card allowing a ½ cm boarder each time, and stick to the bottom right of the card,
6.   Stick the 3 tiny buttons below the main topper, and the 1 large button above the greeting.
7.   Stick the punched boarder to the edge of the floor about 2 cm in from the right hand edge.
To make the easel rest
8.   Cut out the greeting as small as you can, and stick to the blue then silver card allowing a ½ cm boarder each time. This needs a double layer of foam tape, to be high enough to prop the easel open, prop open the easel and stick the rest in place,
9.   You have room on the floor of the easel to put a personal message, and enough blue and silver card left in the kit to mat and layer it.
