Easel card with a twist

I posted a similar card to this a good while back, well before I had so many lovely folk hopping in and out of here. I love making twisted easel cards - especially when they're from a Kanban kit with card patterned on both sides and all the elements co-ordinated - quick and easy:
These are much quicker to make than straight easel cards, as well as only needing one base card instead of one and a half - and speed is the name of the game here right now. I woke up in the early hours thinking of different ways to set up the 'stationery production line'!!

Have a nice day - no need to guess what I'll be doing, but have decided to limit myself to two or three hours flat out on the stationery in one burst. Someone here does need some ironing to be done and an occasional meal :))



  1. Terrific twisted easel card there Di.

    Good idea to limit yourself to set hours. Get too much otherwise.

  2. What a fab designed card Di. It's so effective and pretty.

  3. Make sure you have lots of rest, your hands will need it! Love the easel card - pretty pink for you!

  4. I have only ever done the straight easel cards, but I think I shall have to follow your example and try the twisted ones for a change. Your little birds look so chirpy and happy.

  5. Wow Di, you have really done youself proud here your card is just beautiful! l like the twisted Easel cards but have never done one but looking at your l see l'm going to have a give it ago, love the image and the coloured papers also the sentiment place on the base card just finishes it off perfectly, think l will have to check out this Kanban site:) Sandra H

  6. How lovely! Love the colors and the birds are colored delightfully. I love easel cards as well but this looks so much easier and actually nicer then the usual easel card. Adding this to my ‘must try this’ list.
    I think you are very wise to limit yourself on how much time you spend on the stationery. I can tell you it’ll drive you mad if you don’t.

  7. Just love this card, fabulous shape and the papers are really nice too, cute images.
    Will just have to have a go.

  8. Hello there, Di! Nice to meet you! I'm glad you found me through a mutual blog friend! :-)

    I'm following your blog now too.

    Thanks for the nice comment and I hope we become good friends.

    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  9. Several times I have heard this word... "ironing"... and still have no concept of what it is! *lol*
    If something is creased when it's comes off the line or out of the dryer, then it's up to the wearer to decided how flattened it needs to be ... not I *lol*
    Beautiful card - so sweet!
    Make a stand... more crafting, les ironing.
    Let's face it... housework is something that just eats into craft time really.

  10. Hi Di

    Love Jules xx
