Double Twisted Easel Card
by Dina Kowal
- Scoring tool
- Paper trimmer
- Foam tape
- Other supplies as needed to complete the card (Bazzill cardstock, adhesive label paper (for die cuts), Impression Obsession Heart Frame die DIE249-Y and Many Waters C13081 used here)
Cut cardstock into an 8" square. Score at 4".
Turn cardstock a quarter turn. Cut from the scored line to the edge of the cardstock at the 4" mark.
Align opposite corners on the scoring line of a trimmer or score board. Score diagonally from the outside corner to the point where the scored and cut lines meet.
Repeat on the other side of the cut line.
Fold and crease on all score lines, making sure edges align.
Prepare 2 front panels for the card, each 4" square.
Adhere the panels to the lower triangular section of the front panels; do not put adhesive on the upper triangular portions.
When the card is displayed, the panels will be turned a quarter turn - be sure to consider the direction of your images before adhering.
On the inside of the card, add a raised element in the center of the panel that will hold the easel element open and in place when the card is open. It can be a die cut or other embellishment. (Sample is adhered with foam tape.)
Complete the card.
Finished card will fit in a business size envelope.
Use a strip of cardstock to create a belly band for the card for a more elegant presentation.
Instead of scoring as above (step 3), score from the top of the cut line down to the ends of the scored line.
Assemble according to instructions. The panels will face outward instead of in.
