Tutorial - Twisted Easel Card

I have another version of an easel card to share with you today, and this one has a twist... literally!
1. Start with a square card blank, keeping the fold on the right hand side.  My finished card measures 51/2" x 51/2", but you can use any size you like. 

2.  Score a line from the top left hand corner to the bottom right hand corner of the card front.  Fold along the score line pressing firmly with your bone folder to create a crisp, sharp line.  Refer to the photo below.

3.  Secure a piece of patterned paper on the inside of your card with double sided tape or glue.  When the card stands open this piece of paper will be visible so you want it to match your other papers and embellishments.

4.  Cut a piece of cardstock that is the same size as your folded card.  In my case that is 51/2" x 51/2".  This will form the front panel of your card.  Decorate as desired. 

5.  Apply double sided tape or glue to the lower half of your card front, below the score line.  Make sure none of the adhesive spills over onto the top half or your card won't open properly.

6.  Line up the decorated panel and secure it to the front of the card.  You've now formed the base of your twisted easel card.

7.  Add a three dimensional embellishment on the inside of the card to act as an anchor point.  I used a circle of cardstock secured with some foam tape.

8.  Add additional embellishments as desired... and you're done!
