Triple Twisted easel card

 


Once I started playing with the Hippest Hippo stamps and dies, I knew that they would be such fun with this style of card.

I am writing these instructions in a hurry as I am in the middle if designing for a new launch but as I promised a new subscriber – so here you are.

I made mine in centimetres but it is easy to convert to inches and I have attempted to write sizes for US card. The method is exactly the same.




Score and fold on the dotted line and cut on the red lines.



Metric

base   20cm x 14.7.  

1.     fold in half at 10 cm on long side

2.     Turn card and on short side  CUT at 4.9 cm to the score line, and again at 9.8 cm.

3.     score across the diagonal as shown

4.     fold and burnish

matts

2 patterns of DSP cut 3 of each 4.4 x 9.5 cm and cut across diagonal THE SAME WAY as card. Use 3 of each and there will be paper left to make another card reversing the DSP designs.

 

US Letter size card

base 5 ¼ x 8 ½

1.     score in half at 4 ¼ on long side

2.     turn card and cut 1 ¾ to score line and again 3 ½

3.     score as metric from corner to cut line as diagram

4.     fold and burnish

matts

2 different patterns DSP. Cut 3 of each 1 ½ x 4


UK  using A4 card and inches

base 5 ¼ x 8 ¼   score at 4 1/8, then as US

matts  1 ½ x 3 ¾

 

ALL SIZES

Adhere DSP to card and find suitable stopper – I used a flower from the die set to hold each twisted  easel in place BEFORE finishing the decoration and adding Hippest hippos so that you can align the characters properly.

 

Once you’ve tried it, this is such an easy fold

 

Happy crafting everyone
