One last Petal Pizzazz.....Twisted Easel....

OK, I admit I've been showing you alot of Petal Pizzazz and with the same flower from the set.  There are several flowers (five of them, I think) in the set and I've been leaning heavily on this one flower.  I promise to use some of the others to show you in the future.  But honestly, you could do the cards I'm showing you with any of the flowers. 

This card is called a twisted easel.  Here is the front of the card.
When you open the card, here is how it looks:
The card itself starts out as a 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card, folded in half to make a 4-1/2"x4-1/2" card.  Put the fold on the left side and then score from the lower left of the front near the fold to the upper right corner.  This made the fold where the card props open. 

This card is Poppy Parade and I have poppy and Peach Parfait flowers on the front.  Some ladies are putting a full sheet on the front which covered up the nice triangle.  I put a small sheet with my flowers so that my triangle shows.  I like that.  The designer paper used on this one is from the Patterns Paper Stack in the In Colors.

This card looks complicated, but is really an easy one to make.  Try it and see how you like it!
Thanks for visiting today.  Smiles, Laura
