Pirate Birthday- Twisted Easel Card

Hello everyone!  Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far...  Today I am taking a group of kids to a Poetry and Prose event about 45 minutes away from my school.  I am also taking them out to eat at McDonald's afterwards.  Then tomorrow, I am going to be taking my class on a field trip... We are going to watch a movie at the movie theater!  I hope I'm strong enough for this!  Just kidding, I actually have a pretty good bunch of kiddos this year...  Anywho, it's my design team day over at Joy's Life.  Our challenge this week was to create a card with an interesting fold...  I have made one of these twisted easel cards before, and I thought it would be fun to make another one!  :)  The video I watched is HERE...  Hope you enjoy!

Wrap it Up- pirate ship cut at 4.29"
Paper Doll Dress Up- pirate boy cut at 2.88"
Sweet Treats- party hat cut at 1.12"
Once Upon a Princess- cupcake cut at 1"
Zooballoo- waves cut at 1.24" (I welded them to a rectangle to make them taller)
Cuttlebug- swiss dots, d'vine swirls
Joy's Life Stamps- You're So Punny
Peachy Keen Stamps- Everyday Character Face Assortment

Hope you liked this, and that you'll head over to Joy's Life DT Blog to see more interesting fold cards using her awesome stamps!  OH, and Joy has just come out with 4 new stamp sets that you just have to see!  I'll give you a peek right here, and you can see all of her sets by clicking HERE...  :)
