Twisted Easel - Potential Swap Card

Hello Lovelies,
I have a "twisted easel" card to share with you. This is my first attempt at this type of card. It took a little time, not because of the fold (easy, so please try it) but because I didn't have any plans for the card, no paper, no ideas. Now, this is normally the case with one exception, I have my design paper picked out, not for this card.  All I knew was, it would be a "twisted easel" card. I am struggling a little bit today with my execution...might be the telephone. Everyone and their extended family has called me today.  Usually, I am able to get right off the phone but not today, don't they know, "I'm crafting." Anyhoo, I have a swap coming up and I'm trying to decide which card to send.  I have enough time, they aren't due until the 20th but I will be mailing them out on the 5th. So, you ladies and I have to decide which one to mail by then.  I will make one more set and then, we will decide between the (3) designs, okay? Thanks for the visit.


  1. Don't you just love this twisted easel design? I have made it many times and because it's different than even the easel, people just love them. So far this one is my first choice for your swap. also want to tell you, thank you for your sweet comments you leave me, almost everyday!! You lift my heart! Hugs, Pam at

  2. This card is so absolutely gorgeous, Shen! I love the different colored trees! You did such a fantastic job, as usual! I love to make easel cards but haven't attempted a twisted one yet, you have inspired me to try one :D
