Christmas Cactus Twisted Easel
Welcome to my blog my crafty friends!
Today I have a Twisted Easel Card sporting Christmas Cactus and Gathering Basket from Susan's Garden Club with Spellbinders new Christmas Release.
Starting with 6" X 12" white cardstock scored at 6" giving you a 6 X 6 card. Next you want to score front of card base from lower left corner to upper right corner (you can draw a light pencil line from corner to corner as a guide then erase once scored). See picture below.
Next cut patterned paper 5-3/4" square adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Make sure to flatten out card front before adhering patterned paper. Once adhered go over score line again from back side. Fold on score line and burnish.
My Spellbinders die set is an old one called Labels One but I have linked Classic Labels either one will work. Using white cardstock cut the largest label then next size down in pattern paper attach to larger Label using Clear Double sided Adhesive.
Cut pattern paper 5-3/4" square attach to inside of card.
From white cardstock cut a label (size that your sentiment will fit on) using black ink stamp sentiment (mine is from Susan's New Christmas release). I cut a second label next size up from patterned paper dimensional tape was used to attach sentiment label to patterned label then Clear Double Sided Adhesive used to attach to card positioning to act as stop for card front.
From brown cardstock 2 Gathering Baskets were cut and adhered together. distress Oxide inks used to add shading to basket. Pop dots added to center back of basket added Bearly Art Glue on side and bottom edges as well the pop dots adhere to the large label leaving top open.
From green cardstock cut foliage for Christmas Cactus and flowers from Susan's Specialty Cardstock. Susan's Deluxe Tool Kit was used to shape foliage and flowers. White Nuvou drops were used for the buds and red Copic marker was used for stamens. Using Kids Choice Glue add foliage to basket arranging so it looks naturally growing. Add flowers same way. Susan has videos on YouTube that are very helpful in creating these it can be found here.
I do hope I have inspired you to create your own Twisted Easel Card it really is fun and easy to do.
