Janis at Pause Dream Enjoy is having a Fun Fold card challenge on her blog and a chance to win a set of Peachy Keen stamps. I wanted to play along and just recently heard about a twist on the Easel card. It is a Twisted Easel card and thought it would work great for this challenge. While blog hopping recently I saw a really cute St. Patrick’s Day card with some frogs and the saying Feeling Green. I just thought it was so super cute and wanted to make my own version of the card and knew it would be perfect for this challenge.
To make the card I followed the tutorial on Pam Sparks blog. I can’t take credit for finding the tutorial Bob at Happy Cardmaker posted the link and was my inspiration to give this a try.
My finished card is a 6” X 6” Square card. I started with a piece of card stock cut 6” X 12” and scored it at 6”, then scored one side from corner to corner diagonally. I used some dark green card stock I had in my stash for the card base. The patterned paper on the card is from a K & Co paper stack. I used my Cricut Imagine and the Audrey cartridge for frog. The frog cut was cut at 2.7” and is from the Once Upon a Princess cricut cartridge. The shamrocks on the inside of the card are cut at 2” and are from the Celebrate With Flourish Cricut Lite cartridge and I again flooded the layers with colors and patterns from the Audrey Cricut Imagine cartridge. I ran the frog's stomach through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. I printed the Feeling Green sentiment out on my computer.
I am really pleased how this turned out. I hope you give this card a try, it was a lot of fun to make and actually very easy. Thanks for visiting
