The Crafts Meow Sneak Peak #2 Little Frieda and Lulu - My Girl

Thanks for all your lovely comments on yesterdays post with Little Frieda by the Seashore - 

Today the Design Team and the FCM are sneak peeking another little cutie - Little Frieda and Lulu - My Girl.

I made a twisted easel card today to show off this cute little Frieda and her pretty kitty, Lulu (I made Lulu grey because I have two gray cats!)   I learned how to make this style card over on Split Coast at the Try a New Technique challenge last week. Just click on the pic to see it larger.

To make this card - I started with a piece of card stock 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" that I folded in half. Then I folded the front half of the card over - corner to corner to form the triangle. Next I adhered the rectangle to the front of the triangle. The scalloped circle is adhered with foam tape and helps keep the easel up when you want it open.

Here's how it looks folded down - it will go flat and fit in a regular A2 size envelope - It measures 4 1/4" x4 1/4"

Please check over at Lisa's TCM Blog to find all the links of who's participating in the sneak peek today. 

Then be sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs. Three comments will be selected randomly from three of the blogs to win this stamp set! You have until tonight at 10:00 pm Pacific to make the rounds. Lisa will announce the winner on her post tomorrow.
