We Must be Willing to Let Go
This is the first card I'm posting over at the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog today as part of my Design Team Assignments! I'd love for you to hop over there and leave a comment on my posting!
I used the twisted easel style for my card today - isn't this cool??!! It was the Try a New Technique challenge over at Split Coast this week. Here's the link to the instructions from Laura's Blog:
You start with a piece of card stock 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" that you fold in half. Then you fold the front of the card over - corner to corner to form the triangle. Then adhere the rectangle to the front. The scalloped circle is adhered with foam tape and helps keep the easel up.
Here's how it looks folded down - it will go flat and fit in a regular A2 size envelope - (it just wouldn't stay completely flat without me holding it down!) It measures 4 1/4" x4 1/4"
I was so pleased with how this came out - I'll definately be making more cards using this fun style!
I used the Split Coast CAS challenge colors - chocolate, sand, baby blue and white.
My stamps are a wonderful new Faith set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Let Go and Let God.
Thanks for stopping by today!
