Exclusive Art Philosophy Twisted Easel Card


Today’s card is my 2nd Twisted Easel Card and all the cuts are exclusive to Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I am having a great time using the great cuts on this cartridge!

I posted my first Twisted Easel card earlier this week and put all the sizes and names of the cuts on that post. The cuts of the bird is .75 inch and it cut perfectly! The detail on the cuts is amazing on this cartridge and they cut amazingly well at small sizes. Just one of the reason I love this cartridge.


This card is for a friend and her family and I made it with them in mind. For me there is nothing more calming and peaceful than nature and this adorable little bird on a perfect branch is just the touch I was looking for.

20121129-212826.jpg I popped my little bird up using some dimensional tape.

The inside of the card has some lace ribbon on it and three flowers that are on this great cartridge. I also added a few pearls that I had on my craft island.

These flowers are so easy to make and take seconds to put together. I added some Ranger Denim Stickles to the inside of my flowers for added bling and color.


Be sure to click here to see my first post that has the link to the video tutorial for how to make your own Twisted Easel card and the measurements for my base card cuts. My card stock is all DCWV and I used Ranger Distressed Inks, and applicators.
