TCBS-Easel Card w/ twist!

Happy Tues.

Hi~ya everyone,

How are all of my cyber friends and visitors today? I hope you are all safe and well, especially those that are in the path of the nasty weather. We experienced some heavy rain and thunderstorms last week, but it has been beautiful the past few days.

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot our challenge was to create an Easel card. I love making these cards, and this time I did something a little different. I made a easel card with a twist! Get it, my name with a twist, lol. I have seen these cards before, but most are made square. I wanted mine to be A-2 size, so I Google-d it and found different variations. Once I found one I like, I made a sample until I got it right.

This card is for my oldest brother who's birthday is next month. I know I won't have time to make him one, will be busy making Mother's Day cards and Graduation gifts. He doesn't like frilly things, so this one is more his style. He loves classic cars and trucks. I made the sentiment a pop-up when the card is opened. For this I used a small piece of heavy duty acetate folded in half, and secured with sticky tape. I love how the card angles, and inside has room for a quick message. He doesn't like all that mushy stuff, just straight forward. The soft pale plaid colors are one of my favorites. I am not sure if you can tell, but the green underneath has been embossed with the cuttlebug. The design paper has foil in the gray and blue sections. A very pretty paper for doing a card for a male. OK, I have been running off at the mouth, so I want to see your creation for this weeks challenge. Be sure to check out what my D/T members have in store for you this week at The Cuttlebug Spot! Catcha' later!
