This is my last post for today. I have been B~U~S~Y today.
Working outside in the sunshine and craftin' in between :)
I was watching a tutorial on Cardz TV with Mary on how to make this twisted easel card. As I was blog hopping I found a bunch of challenges that I thought would fit this card.
My first time making one of these cards and I have to say that besides being really easy to make, they look awesome when completed!

So what do you think?
I really love how this turned out....especially for my first attempt.
So for the details:
The card is an A2 size with both inside and outside mat measuring 4" x 5 1/4".
The cut is from Simple Charmed and it was cut at 3". I hid the face and instead added some white stitching. To add dimension to the cake I popped up the 1st layer as well as the candles and flames.
The banner is a stamp and inside the banner I stamped 4 U. They are strung with red bakers twine.
The inside of the card is very simple. The sentiment is from Fiskars and that too is up on foam dots with some stitching around the mat. There was originally just going to be buttons that were used to hold open the card but I liked how the stamped image raised worked better.
I also added another smaller mat to add another birthday note.
There you have it...my first attempt and for sure not my last with the twisted easel card.
This card is for the following challenges:
Catered Crop- FTR #13
Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog- Something on a Spool
Getting Cricky- Simply Sunday Challenge~Banner
Birthday Sundaes-#11 Masculine Birthday
Bitten By the Bug 2- Birthday Cake
Thanks for stopping by and see you all tomorrow :)
