I used the Chantilly papers and a couple of stamp sets from Close To My Heart. You'll notice that this card doesn't look "straight" when it's opened. That's the 'twisted' part! Here's a little "How-To" so you can make one of your own:
Start with an 8.5" X 11" piece of cardstock that is cut into 2 pieces:
You only need one piece - save the other one for your next card!
Begin by scoring your piece of cardstock at 5.5" and then score it again diagonally:
Now fold your cardstock along the first score line to make it look like a card. Then fold along the diagonal score line. It should look like this:
Do you see the base of the card starting to take shape?
You will need another piece of cardstock that is cut to 5.5" by 4 and 1/4". It is pictured here:
Add adhesive to the one triangular section:
and attach your cardstock piece:
This is the front view.
Here's a look from the back:
The only thing left to do is to embellish!
Here are a couple of more pics of my actual card from different angles:
Helpful hint: I added a pearl to help keep the card propped open:
I hope you'll give this technique a try. It's quite simple and makes a beautiful card for a friend to display!
