Adorable Owls Twisted Easel Card
My handmade card features the Adorable Owls Stamp Set with the twisted easel fun fold. These cute little owls add a lot of fun to any card. (This stamp set can be earned free with a minimum $50 purchase.)
In addition to the Adorable Owls, I used the Country Floral Lane 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.
At first glance, this little card appears to open normally. But gently grab corner and it folds. Use the sentiment on the bottom piece as a “kickstand” to make the card stand up.
I started with a Sweet Sorbet card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 4 1/4. On the long side, score at 4 1/4. Turn the left side of the card stock, and score diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Fold the card in half. On the left side, bring the bottom left tip to the middle top, folding on the score line. Add a Basic White base measuring 4 x 4 and the Country Lane Designer Series Paper measuring 3 3/4 x 3 3/4. Decorate as you wish. Use the same measurements for the bottom piece. Stamp a sentiment and pop up on the bottom to use as a “kickstand.”
