Fancy folds Card Class, Best of Everything gets Trifold, Hello gets a Twisted Easel

Cards with folds are always interesting and in my latest class we made 4 different varieties. I don't know the correct names for them all but it was fun.

Earlier posts show the trifold card I made for Easter ( one with Summer Silhouettes, the other with Established Elegance sets) , and this one is a bright fresh colour combo with Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade and the Best of Everything Set. I used the same measurements as before and instructions are on that page. This one has a completely different look - it's amazing how changing colours and stamping images can completely transform a card's look.

The next one was a Twisted Easel Card, and I first saw this at Brisbane Regionals last year. I loved it and took some photos and came home and experimented with it. I used Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi and a touch of Regal Rose ( I am sad this colour is retiring soon!) The stamp set is My Friend which is always very striking for it's simplicity. I apologise for the ordinary photography but that is not one of my better talents!...

The card base is a strip of Calypso Coral 10.5 cm by 28cm, scored at 14cm for standard centre fold.
There is only one other score line. With the card closed and the spine on the left it is a mountain fold from the base of the spine  ( ie bottom left corner) to the top right corner of the card front.
Wild Wasabi Mat is 10cm x 13.5cm
Very vanilla mat for Inside is the same 10cm x 13.5cm
Very Vanilla for Front stamped image is 9.5cm x 13cm
Anchor inside is 3 layers with stampin dimensionals between .
To attach the stamped and matted card front I put glue onto the lower triangle of Calyspo Coral and then put the wasabi mat down on the glue, this stops me from getting confused and glueing it  in the wrong spot.... ask me how I know this!!
The position of the anchor is up to you, but it is a card that doesn't allow too much room for writing any text so some experimenting is necessary.  It may also need instructions on how to stand it up for some recipients!!!
Hope that helps you have a go at this very easy card.

Thanks for looking, Liz

Score on the card front goes from bottom left corner to top right corner.
Anchor on the inside is 3 layers, green circle with 13/8"punch,  mini scallop (11/4" I think) and stamp set from Christmas mini 2012 up on dimensional, and centre 3/4" circle punch also up on dimensional.
