Happy Everything - Twisted easel card TUTORIAL to match Dovecraft planner and bookmark

 I've been enjoying the gorgeous Dovecraft planners with all the beautiful coordinating embellishments, but as a cardmaker, I couldn't resist making a card with some of the new Let's Celebrate papers and the planner embellishments to match.

You will need:
Dovecraft 6x6 white card
Trimcraft First Edition "Let's Celebrate" paper pad
Dovecraft Printed Pegs DCACC006
Dovecraft Wooden Toppers and Gems DCACC009
Dovecraft Photo Corners DCACC007
Dovecraft Washi Tape DCACC003
white card
Docecraft Crafters glue

How to make it:

 1. Open, then score and fold the front of a 6x6 white card from top left to bottom right as shown above.

 2. Cut a piece of green patterned paper to 14.5cm x 14.5cm and glue to  the inside of the card.

 3. Layer a triangle cut from a 13cm square of hooray paper onto a triangle cut from a 14cm square of green patterned paper and glue to the bottom half of the card front.

4. Cut 2 pieces of  white card and 2 pieces of patterned paper to the measurements shown and cut out a dog from the paper pad.

 5. Use the white card pieces as the bottom layers and add the patterned layers on top,then glue the dog in the centre. Add photo corners to both panels.|Fold the card front in half and glue the whole panel (by the bottom right only) to the folded part so that the top half is not attached. 

6. Add a wooden peg top the top of the dog panel . Fold the front back to where it sits up well and add a wooden flower as the "stopper". Add a length of washi tape down the right hand side of the base of the card.

You can also make a bookmark to match using a tassel at the bottom :)
