"An Apple a Day"

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


Today I would like to show you another example of a twisted easel card. It is made with Spellbinder dies to cut out the pieces.

Here is the card;

"An Apple a Day"

I used the following Spellbinder Dies to cut the elements of the card;

  • Main Body Lacey Squares S4-295
    Image Mat Petite Scalloped Oval LG S4-139
    Saying Mat Standard Circle SML S4-116
    Saying Mat Classic Scalloped Circle SML S4-125

The image was colored with Copic Markers using the following markers;

  • Apples; R22,R24,R27,R29
    Leaves; G02,G09
    Basket; E11,E15

You can get the instruction for the assembly of the basic Twisted Easel Card from "Pam Sparks" blog. Her instructions are excellent.

One hint on making this card is to cut off the loops form by the die on the hinged portion of the card body, only. This makes it easier to assemble the card.

Try different Spellbinder dies to make these cards. You will get some very different effects. Have fun and enjoy your experiments.

Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!!

Bob L.
