an earlier post, I was lucky enough to win some fantastic Blog Candy from my online pal, Barb. I told you all about her and the special friendship that we share. I wanted to send her a special thank you and I was determined to figure out how to make an A2 size "Twisted Easel" style card. Now that she has received it, I can post it here.
There are several instructional videos out there, but I found this one most helpful. I still didn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I modified what I saw and kind of made up my own design. After several measuring errors, I am really happy with the results.
The shapes were cut with my Cuttlebug using Spellbinders dies. The flower was stamped, colored and cut with good old-fashioned scissors.
The stamps are Hero Arts, CL046 Clear Design Friendship Messages and CL375 Big Flowers. That flower set is one of my favorites. I used water colors and some bling and ribbon from my stash.
I sure hope that I can make another card of this style someday - I should have made two of them after I figured it out!
Thanks for looking and thanks again, Barb.
