For this card I followed the directions for the twisted circle easel card at  Splitcoast Stampers.  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/twistedcirculareaselcard/.

  1. Using the Grand Scalloped die, cut  card base out of Avalanche paper.  Be sure to place your die so that it extends slightly over the fold of the paper so that part won't cut.  This will leave you with a hinge to open your card.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  2. Cut a second grand scalloped die out of the Neenah paper.  Stamp this with fairy image.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  3. Color image with Copic markers.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  4. Fold card base along a diagonal to make the easel.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  5. Cut patterned paper with Grand Circle die for inside of card.
  6. Stamp sentiment and cut out using Ribbon Tag Trio die.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  7. Begin to assemble your card.  Slide ribbon through the ribbon tag die.  Sew a button on the left edge near die cut as shown.
  8. Attach ribbon and die cut to patterned paper.  Fold ends of ribbon behind paper and tape onto card base.  (On the inside of the card)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  9. Attach fairy image to front of card.  Be sure to only apply adhesive to the top of the image (or apply only to card base).
  10. Add star sticker to the top of card.
  11. Use gold pearl pen to add pearls to each scallop.
