Hello there, good week?  I can’t believe it’s Friday !

My working week is a bit upside down at the moment as Connor is at home on study leave whilst he is taking his GCSEs it’s amazing how much of a difference to your working routine someone else in the house makes.  The good news is, he is studying hard and I’m helping with the Chemistry and the ‘keeping the mind focussed’ !!!  All to soon he will have finished school and be off to college.

I have had another great week, if a little distracted…… seen lots of customers and been busy preparing for my classes next saturday, I’ll share some of those projects with you the following week.

The card today is a twisted easel, it is sooooooooo straightforward to make but looks impressive, I took a standard 6″ x 4″ card blank with the score on the left hand side.  Score diagonally bottom left to top right.  As with all easel cards you do need to go over all the score lines with a bone folder, to ensure the creases are crisp and sit neatly. I then took a 5 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ mat layer and glued it onto the bottom triangle as shown, topped with a 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ Whisper White layer.

The card is decorated with paper daisies which I coloured with markers and spritzed with water to make the ink bleed.  then I folded the flowers into 4, scrumpled them a little and left them to dry.

The easel stands up but using a scallop oval punch, but it will fold flat to post.  I have used Baroque Motifs to decorate.

Here is a view from the back, hopefully it will make the instructions a little clearer.

Happy Stampin’
