My card today is a multi-tasking card. It is a sample in this week’s tutorial for the Twisted Circular Easel card, a fun variation of the Easel card tutorial that was already in our resource section. It is also a sample for the new Spectrum Noir Marker review on SCS and a sample for Lydia’s HYCCT challenge, which was to create a card that showcases your style.

I started by stamping Taylored Expressions Moka Angel image Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Spectrum Markers (Dress: PP1, PP3, PP5 Skin: FS2, FS3, FS 6 (cheeks), TN2 Wings: BT1, BG2) and cut out.  A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with a Vintage Lace Motif die. A piece of My Mind’s Eye Be Happy paper was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded before the circle was stitched to the Vintage Lace circle.  The angel was adhered over the circles with foam adhesive squares. Stardust Stickles was added over the wings and the halo.

My Mind’s Eye Honey patterned paper was cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched. Seam binding was tied around the layer. The bow was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread and the layers were adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Decorative Circle dies.  The image circles were adhered to the card front center with foam adhesive squares.

The inside of the card was also decorated with Honey patterned paper that had been cut and embossed with a Grand Circle Nestabilities die. White Crochet Ribbon was adhered around the horizontal strip before the layers were stitched.  White cardstock was cut and embossed with a tag die from the new Back to the Basic tag dies. A sentiment from Moka Angel was stitched on it with Jet Black Archival ink. Flowers and part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.
