Twisted Easel Doohickey’s flower/tag card…

The second Friday afternoon of the month is our area stamp club meeting…an awesome group of ladies/stampers that I’ve met with for years and they truly are dear friends!  I thought it’d be fun to try the twisted easel card,  so this is what we made yesterday!  Pink,  yes, pink and dark pink,  NOT red!  I hate it that cameras don’t capture true colors but think pink when you look at these pictures! lol

This photo shows the card closed… you can mail it in a 5×7 envelope the way I made it,  that way it’s ok that the butterfly and flower stick off a little because they will be in the envelope the 7 in. way! yea!

Here’s what I did after checking out the You Tubes, blogs and SCS for ideas.

  • one piece of 8.5 x 11 card-stock cut to 5 x 10
  • with a Martha Stewart score board, score that piece in half and then the top half score a diagonal and it doesn’t really matter from which corner because it can sit either direction.  ***My diagonal goes from the “in half” score up to the top left corner and the top right triangle formed from scoring is the triangle I decorated***

  • I used Magnolia Doohickey’s Dies, Doily Flowers, Foliage, Tilda’s Lace, Vintage Tag,  Lacey Circles and Circles Nestabilities, (the eyelet circles would be cool too!). Layer the circles together like the picture. The NEW Doohickey’s dies would be awesome also.
  • I cut a 4 3/4 in. square diagonally and layered it up on the triangle that I decorated… it dawned on my when I was taking the photo of the top of the card that I could have used the other leftover triangle too… boo! lol
  • I used two of the large doohickey’s flowers and one of the smaller to create the center-ish pink flower… just one smaller for the accent flower in the bottom corner.  I push in on the center of each petal while folding down the outside edges to shape the petals for dimension.
  • cut two of the foliage doohickey’s die,  keep in mind what direction you want them to lie when you are cutting them out if your card-stock is textured…
  • the Tilda’s Lace border I cut from pink card-stock and then ran it through the crimper a few times to give it a ruffly feel… love that… saw that on one of the You Tubes about this card.  So many wonderful creative people out there! love that they share so freely! YEA and thank you!
  • Hero Arts pearls
  • ribbon
  • I did edge the tag with Antique Linen Distress ink and the ink blending tool
  • The sentiment is from Printworks HERE C2607 “Heart that Holds”  ***REMEMBER – free shipping offer on $20 or more through the 14th… HURRY and get your order in!!!  More info HERE.
  • The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and I can’t remember where I purchased it. Possibly online direct from EK Success.

I’m linking to the following challenges…

Have fun with this style!  I’d love to see what you come up with too! ttul!
