TLC394 - Twisted Card


Hello everyone....hope you have had a wonderful weekend!!! Happy Grandparent's Day to all you grandma's and grandpa's!!!!! I took my Mom to church this morning and then went to my DGD Mackenzie's first soccer game of the season....they won 4-1...Woot!!!!! That was a great way to celebrate this special day!!!! Anyway....

It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast this week and my challenge to you is to make a Twisted Card!! It looks complicated but it's ooooh sooo easy!!! My TLC friend, Sue (bensarmom) sent me this video from U-Tube by Kelly Gettlefinger and suggested we use it for one of the TLC challenges...thanks, Sue!!!!

Here are the details from the video:
1.Cut card stock 4-1/4"x11"
2. Score right top corner to left bottom corner at an angle
3. fold on score and leave folded
4. score down the center and fold over to form the card...you will have a pocket on the front and one on the inside
5. now you can embellish as you wish

Here is a look at the inside:


The pocket on the inside is just perfect for a gift card or maybe movie tickets....the sky is the limit!!!

I added designer paper to mine....I also added the felt rolled roses, punched leaves and the ball fringe along the pocket. The Abigale stamp and sentiment from Rubbernecker were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto vanilla card stock, cutout and adhered with foam dots.

I hope you have fun with this and be sure to come to the TLC394 gallery for lots of inspiration!!!

Hiya Joan - wow, so much inspiration in one blog. I love this twisted card, thanks for the simple instructions, I like that there are the little pockets to pop something nice into. and I especially like your fold-over bookmark - i always hate throwing away the thin little offcuts when i cut down cardstock but never had a use for them....until now that is! I will definitely be borrowing that idea in the future. i'm still not doing any crafting but I did manage a spot of colouring this evening so hopefully won't be too much longer till I make something.

Hope you're well and that your Dad is doing OK. CoB
