Doubling Up at Outlawz.

Over at Outlawz Challenge Blog the Progressive Challenge is using a gorgeous image from Sandisamples. My focal image was already to go but I hadn't put it on a card yet. Well then the Twisted Thursday girls decided to have as the optional twist this week, an easel card and I thought perfect. I think by now its safe to say that I love easel cards, especially twisted easel cards; they are easy to make and yet bring so much wow factor to your card.  So here is another twisted easel card to add to the collection.

Card Tip:

I usually make twisted easel cards with the finished card being 6"x6" square, which tends to be a large card. I wanted to make a smaller one, to see if it would work. This way there is less bulk and there is no extra postage costs. This card ended up being the equivalent of 4"x4" square.

Card Ingredients:

Card Stock: White and purple card stock from stash.
Papers: patterned paper from stash.
Stamps: Sandi's Samples Watering Can, Clearly Besotted Stamps.
Ink: Versamark Ink, Allison Ellison white embossing powder.
                    Watering Can: C1+C3+C5+C7
                    Heart: R22+R24+R27+R29
                    Leaves: YG63+YG17
                    Flowers: V04+V06+V15+V17, V04+V06+V09,
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities classic oval large and small,lacy oval, grommet tags, label 1
Other: Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, flowers and clear gems from stash, candy dot.
