Double Twisted Easel
By Lagene Sands
Start with an 8 x8 inch square of heavy cardstock for the base.
Score down the center. Then turn cardstock 1 turn and score at the center
just down to the first scoreline. This short scoreline will be cut to form the 2 easels.
Score both 4 inch squares from top outside corner to the center fold line.
Then fold forward on the diagonal scorelines.
These will be the easels.
You will need something with some depth in the center of your card on
The inside to hold the easels. I took black fun foam and cut 2 shaped like my cut out
Tree and glued them together (to give more depth) & glued my heat embossed tree on top of them And adhered the tree in the center on the inside of the card. I added more stamping around the tree at the bottom of my card.
Cut 4 x 4 inch heavy cardstock for the bases for your 2 easel images. My image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics. I then covered the image with a Versamark pen and heat embossed with clear Embossing Powder and then sponged the sky & grass. I mounted it on heavy yellow cardstock and placed it on the 4 x 4 heavy black cardstock.
Now be very CAREFUL to fold your diagonal squares to rest behind your dimensional and place your images so that they are right side up when the card is propped open! (Guess why I said be CAREFUL my first attempt had my standing giraffe face down when it was propped open)
Now it’s your turn, give this technique a try & enter to win!
