Twisted Easel card tutorial

Hi Everyone! I (Jane) am here with my first tutorial since I joined the permanent DT for Whiff of Joy. Today, I will be showing how to make a twisted easel card using the gorgeous Mother and Child image below.

To make the card you will need the supplies listed below:

13.5x13.5 cm when folded Square Kraft card blank
Square of Kraft card cut to 13.5cmx13.5cm
Patterned papers
Whiff of Joy Mother and Child image
Whiff of Joy pennants die
Whiff of Joy pearls
Strawberry charm
Ribbon and lace
Various paper flower
Printed sentiment
Embossing tool, ruler, Bone folder

To make the card:

Score diagonally along the inside front of the card blank

Fold the card and crease with the bone folder

Add double sided tape to the folded section

Add the square of Kraft card to the panel with tape on, when it is folded it will look as above

Cut two squares of red paper to 13x13cm and top with strawberry papers cut to 12x12cm, sew around the edges if desired. Cut a strip of red paper to 6cmx13cm and top with a strip of paper cut to 5cmx13cm. Add lace to the bottom of the strip and add to one of the patterned paper squares. Wrap with ribbon and add to the card base.

Decorate the card front with flowers, your coloured image, a bow, charm and your sentiment.
Add the pennant die cut to the base of the easel with foam pads to act as a stopper. Add more flowers to the the base of the easel and your card is finished!
I hope you will be inspired to give my tutorial a try.
Have a great day!


  1. Hi, this tutorial is very interesting, but I don't understand how add the square of card to the panel...

  2. Very easy to follow and a great twisted card, not made one of these yet, but won't be afraid to try it now. Thank you. Dbebiexx

  3. Very very nice easel card (and wonderful stamp... i bought it time ago), but don't we need a base of 13,5 x 26 cm as base?

  4. Great card... wonderful tutorial... I like the "twist" on the standard easel card - will have to give this a try! Hugs, antonella :-)

  5. So nice card and stamp! Thanks for sharing this tutorial.

  6. These stamps are lovely and thanks for the tutorial. Of course I must try to make a twisted easel card.
