Cross Twisted Easel

Paper Playtime #80 Anything Goes

Cross Twisted Easel Card using New Testament Cricut cartridge.  The cross is cut at 2 inches and highlighted with Glossy Accents.  Butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and accented with Liquid Pearls.  Sentiment is from CardzTV "Encouraging Thoughts."

To make this card:

The card base consists of two pieces.  One at 4.25" x 9.75" and the second at 4.25" x 5.5".

Score the larger base at 5.5" and diagonally.  Then fold from right-most corner to center score line.  Like this: 

Attach the second part of the card base to the first.

Helpful hint:  only add tape to the part I'm pointing to in the above picture.

Now your card will twist and set up.  

Decorate your card and add a "stopper" so card will stay open.

To create the stopper:
  • cut a strip of card stock at 1" x 2.25" (for your message)
  • cut a mat to go under at 1.25" x 2.5"
  • add foam tape under to elevate
  • hold your card open (like the picture above) to determine where to attach the stopper.

  1. Great card and perfect instructions with photos. I've never made one of these, but I think I could with your easy instructions. Thanks for playing with us at Paper Playtime. :) Janis
