I needed a B-day card for my SIL who is turning 40 on Sunday!!! Wooohooo Julie Anne! Happy b-day!!! ;o) I know she reads my posts so will see this. But since she got her card already it's ok.
And I really wanted to make one that was special. So I decided to play with the newest challenge over at Scrapbook blessings which is to make a twisted easel card. Since I had never made one I thought this was just perfect!!!
So I was braved and tried it out. And well... when it's your 1st try there's always stuff that you don't anticipate... like making it the wrong side. Oh well it looks great open... but it does open the wrong side up. And I made it 6x6 instead of the measurements that were in the video... so that added a little bit of complexity. But hey, I like a challenge.
The image was great for this card 'cause my SIL wanted a new pair of boots and I think those are are pretty awesome.
The paper is from Bobunny Ad lib. I used my Label 11, label 14 and label 4 all from Spellbinder. I used some flowers from Prima and a brad from Eyelet Outlet. I also put some foam numbers from the dollar store.The flourish was cut with my crafty cutts dies - CCD - 017 flourish 2.
Here's a look when it's open
Create with TLC.
Here's a closer look at the inside sentiment Thought it was just perfect for a b-day card!!!
