TCTC#6 uisng PSC08. The Twisted Easel Card and Grateful Bunch

We made a Twisted Easel card at Saturday's class and I promised I would upload some instructions - It's good to have them in one place, So they'll be searchable here under Fancy Folds. I'm sure there's another edition on this blog from a little while ago.

So I made another version and this time I used the very purple Colour Combination at The Colour Tree Challenge#6. I have to admit that I used Wisteria Wonder in place of Plum, which was a bit of a challenge for me but I dug through my bits and bobs and found an old brad and some ribbon, and all the DSP is from retired packs but that's enough purple in my box!

And again I am using the Pocket Sketch Challenge 
As I mentioned last time, Julie provides all the measurements ready to go which makes this super fast and easy. I haven't altered the dimensions this time as I don't think it matters that the Australian  metric card base is slightly narrower than the US imperial (ours is 5-1/2 x 8-1/4)
  • 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Pool Party cardstock
  • 4" x 2-3/4" Bermuda Bay cardstock
  • 1" x 2" Whisper White cardstock 
  • 1-3/8" x 2" Polka Dot Designer Paper
  • 1-5/8" x 2-1/2" Crushed Curry Designer Paper
(the paper description refers to Julie's sample on her blog)





The Scoring template for the twisted fold. It will work whatever the dimensions of your base card. You just need to make the card front the same size as the back - or slightly smaller. The position of the anchor will determine how high your card sits.

And after actually cutting out the pieces for PSC06 which are smaller than you think, I found it easier to visualise with a measurements template so I created both a metric and an imperial version. 



Hope this helps, and I hope you have a go and create some too.

thanks for looking, 

Liz
