A twisted easel

It's ages since I made a twisted easel card and I was reminded when sorting out a box of semi-forgotten goodies:
 Looking from the front
And from the side
I used:

- everything came from a QVC Kanban kit, designed by Dawn Bibby, a looooong time ago

- the card is patterned on both sides, which was a great help. I just cut it to 5.5" x 11", scored and creased it in half and then scored and creased diagonally on what I wanted to use as the front

- the topper is layered, using ready cut dies which came in the kit

- popped a little sentiment on the base, using sticky pads, to hold the card upright when it's open

Super fast card today! Do remember to let me know if you entered three times for the 'Mr & Mrs' die and forgot to put the number 3 after your name. I've tried to add them where you have already told me :)

OH my goodness...I am going to have to give this style a try as that is a fantastic fold! It looks so fancy!

Great card and the little fellow is pieced fabulously.

I did my 3 but I think you caught that already as I was one of those airy ones who forgot.
Sorry about that!.

Wheee! That squirrel is so cute and sweet with his lovely patterns. What a fun card. Often I think those twisted easel cards look odd, but this one is whimsical enough that it look proper just the way it is.

How funny you say about the QVC purchase. Most of my bits are from purchases when they use to have the craft spots! Love the twist!
