Scor-Pal and Clearsnap with Diane Zechman

Scor-Pal is hopping with Clearsnap this week...a great combination!   Be sure to check the Scor-Pal Blog and the Clearsnap Blog everyday for inspiration, and also to enter to win a Scor-pal!  Just leave comments this week on any of our Scor-pal posts, and we will choose a winner next week.

 For my project I made a different type of Easel card, a Twisted Triangle Easel Card. I've been having fun with the Easels again and this little triangle version is a nice change. When the card is closed/flat, it looks like this...


 The butterfly, sentiment, and flowers were all stamped with Colorbox Stephanie Barnard Premium Dye inks by Clearsnap. The colors were great to work with and they clean up easily. I liked that they didn't need a lot of drying time. To make the Twisted Triangle Easel, start with a regular card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2). Using a Scor-Pal, score your cardfront diagonally from corner to corner and mountain fold. That's it! All you need to add is your main image to the front and a small piece popped up on the inside to prop your easel open with (plus some patterned paper layers if desired). Here's my card propped open...

I stamped the ink directly onto the patterned paper and added another stamped butterfly to the inside.



This card is much simpler than it looks...try it! And check out all the projects this week on the Scor-Pal and Clearsnap blogs. stamps- Sweet 'n Sassy- Nature Silhouettes, Flowers in Bloom (sentiment), New Creature (sentiment), and Butterfly Flourish (small butterfly); paper- SU!

Lovely stamping. I like how you framed the sentiment with the flower stamping. the little popped butterfly adds just the right touch. The scalloped circle stopper also looks great. I have seen a lot of twisted easel cards but this is the first one that makes me want to try it. Thanks so much.
