The two weeks we were on the road, three of our friends lost a family member. So when we returned home I wanted to get a card made for them. I follow a blog called Cardztv. I have learned a lot from Mary. She has great ideas and very good directions! She showed a video that I knew I wanted to try and thought a sympathy card would be perfect. It is a twisted easel card.
This is the card laying flat…
And when you open it, it twists and stands up like an easel. Cute, huh?
This one was almost a copycat as the one in the video. I happened to have some paper pretty close to what she used. And I really like the black prints together.
My only thought with these cards is I wonder if people will know how to open and swivel it. But if they figure it out, I think it is a nice display of an encouragement from God’s Word and a reminder they are being thought of.
Mary at Cardztv also showed this card. She said “ I suppose you all know how to make an “S” card”…nope, not me. “But if not…” I am so glad she did not just assume and leave it at that. I really liked this card too and it is so easy.
And last, let me show you my Father’s Day card I sent our son-in-law, Ben. I learned how to fold the shirt from, you guessed it, Cardztv.
And Ben even said he like his card!
