Sip Sip Monkey Twisted Easel Card

Wow, I can't believe it's February already! Where did January go? 
Well, today is New Release Day for Digital Delights by Louby Loo, so I decided to make a cute little twisted easel card using "Sip, Sip Monkey" and the sentiment from "Circus Mickey."

Card Recipe

All DD Stamps Used: Sip Sip Monkey, Circus Mickey Set (sentiment)

Cardstock and Papers: Spiffy Birthday Papers from Digital Delights by Louby Loo, cardstock by Recollections, image printed on Spectrum Noir Cardstock by Crafter's Companion

Markers: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Acc./ Embellishments: Foam tape, three 1/2 inch glitter gems by Jots, two 3/8 inch glitter star stickers

Special Technique: 

 A twisted easel card is really easy to make. Start with a 5 by 10 inch piece of cardstock and fold it in half to 5 by 5 inches. Open it up the tall way. Take the upper left corner and fold it diagonally so the point goes to the lower right and the left edge lines up with the center fold. This triangular shaped flap is where you will add your image. Here is the design space file.

When completed, this is how the card will look from the side.

Here is a closer look at the completed image.

Color Palette

Face: FS 1, 6, 9
Fur: EB2, TN6, EB 6
Hat & Wine: CR 7, 8, DR 5, 7
Blues: TB 2, 3, 5
Glass: IB 1, CT 1, 4
Background: BG 1, TB 1, Blender

If you have never made a twisted easel card, give it a try. They are super easy to do and turn out so cute!
