Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge #16~ Fun with Folds

Good Morning Bloggers!
It is time for another Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge
This weeks challenge is~~ Fun With Folds
Create a CARD that is anything but a shape or A2 style. For example an easel, gatefold, waterfall.

For my card I made a Twisted Easel Card
Here it is closed~ It is an A2 size but when you open it...

It looks like this!!!

I love making these fun and VERY easy cards....

Here are the details to make your own...

Start with your base color cut at 4 1/4 x 9 3/4

Score at 5 1/2

Then score diagonally~ corner to inside corner

Fold on the score lines and decide how you want your card to twist. Cut a top layer at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Attach that top layer to your diagonal fold. You can see mine attached here. It makes an A2 size card when folded up
But here is what it looks like opened!

Now decorate away!

For my project today I used the Simply Charmed Cartridge and cut the baby buggy at 3 1/2".
The bottle and pacifier are cut at 2"
The sentiment is cut at 1 1/2".
I added PKS~ Simple Sallies to the baby, bottle and pacifier.
Blinged up the wheels with Bo Bunny brads.
Added 2 stamped images with a baby stamp set from the dollar bin :)
Alittle stickles to the cut sentiment and some white gel pen doodles around the wheels.

So I hope you like my Twisted Easel.
I would love to see you join us this week over at Whimsical Wednesdays. Make sure you visit Whimsical Wednesdays to see the other DT's projects and link up your Fun Fold Card.

  4. Cute buggy twisted easel (try saying that 3 times) card. Thank you for sharing wonderful directions. I recently learned how to make the stair step card & posted one, Horse Howdy Card, on my blog. I'll have to give this a try. I also just found out I won the Whimiscal Wed ch #14 Interactive for my log cabin. My entry was #1 and I kept saying I've only seen one other person win the random with #1 entry but luck was on my side.
