Make My Monday has a brand new challenge starting today and it’s perfect for this month – “Thank You.” We all need to have a stash of thank you cards ready to go because we can’t get through this life without help. And, if someone helps you whether it’s something big or small, I’m absolutely positive that they would feel so good when you give/send them a card. With that in mind, I decided to make a twisted easel card, which is SO easy and fun to make. And, since I haven’t really been able to get enough of the new suite that is now available to everyone, I used the Framed Florets stamp set and designer paper to make this sweet, feminine thank you card.
Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Make My Monday Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!
- Firstly, this A2 card started with thick white cardstock, cut at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2.” Then, for the card front, I scored the paper from the top right corner down to the lower left at the crease line.
- After that, I cut Polished Pink cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″ and cut in half at the diagonal. Then, I cut the Fitting Florets paper to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ and also cut on the diagonal. (SECRET: make sure that you cut the designer paper from the right upper corner to the left lower corner to ensure that you have the side you want.)
And now, the fun part!
- Once all of the layers were glued into place, the card front was super easy to complete. Since I wanted the paper to really be showcased, all I did was to stamp the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink then cropped it out with the layering circle die. After that, I used the scalloped circle die to cut out Evening Evergreen cardstock and glued the two pieces together.
- The designer paper was too pretty to cover up, so I wanted a large die that was lacey. I found exactly what I was looking for when I pulled out my Encircled In Beauty die. So, I cut it out with what cardstock, centered it onto the card front and glued it along the lower portion of the back to make sure it would move with the twisted easel fold.
