Little bIt of Magic

The challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday has started today. My card was so much fun to make. I love doing cards like this. The twist for this week is to add Lace, Ribbon or Twine to your card or project. Stop by and check out the other designer cards. Our sponsor for the month of February Is
 Make it Crafty
 The images I choose to use for my card are Sapphire Sitting Fairy image and Stairway to Heaven
image. My images are from Make it Crafty.
Here is a side view of what the Triple Easel card looks like. It is not hard to make. The paper I used for my background is from Stitchy Stamps it is one of their paper pack that they sell called Garden Fairies Meadow Paper. So I printed it out on my computer. I did cut it a little larger them the right size but I did not want to cute the tree down any more.
The Stairway I tried to make it look like water was running down so I used colors BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10. I add some White Liquid Appliqué and heated it so it would puff up a little. I also put some Diamond Glaze to give it some shine. For the Ivy on the gates the color I used G85, G82, G21. I added some stickles glitter glue star dust and yellow. I wanted something to make the gate a little stronger so I cut a small piece of Transparency and glued it to the back.
 Here is a little closer look.

  Now for Sapphire I used R85, R83, R81. Skin E50 E00. Belt and Trim Y15, Y13, Y11, Hair C9, C7, C5. Eyes E35, Wings BG10 and some Sticklers glitter glue Star dust. I add a strip for the front area for her to sit on because I made to just a little to big for the front panel and I do not remember what the name and who makes that strip :( sorry. I used some glitter brads and also some Stampendous sticklers for the middle of the flowers. To finish my card off I added a bow.
How to make a Triple Easel Card. I used Martha Stewart score it. Here are the measurements, I used tin paper but you would want to used a good card stock for your frame.
Cut 1- 5 1/2 x 11
Cut 3- 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
Score 5 1/2 and 2 3/4 Yellow large easel
Score 2 3/4 and 1 3/8 pink, purple small easel
The 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 you will set a side.

 I did them in colors so you will be able to see each layer.

 The yellow larger of the papers, CUT 5 1/2 by 11 now score it at 5 1/2 and score it at 2 3/4.

Now the pink paper.
  Measurements for the pink paper are score at 2 3/4 and score again at 1 3/8. Fold toward the inside of the card.

 This is how the yellow and pink look as far as size.
 Measurements for the purple are score 2 3/4 and score again at 1 3/8. Fold toward the inside of the card.

 Green paper is for the back of the card.
 I hope this helps with the different papers. It is just a matter of cutting your papers and scoring them at the right spot. This is how the placement of the papers will go.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Any questions let me know.
I like to enter these challenges

You sweet lady - Patricia, I have never given instructions of what or how I do what I do. First of all what I make is so dog gone simple my cards are self explanatory. You were so patient to to this post with the great tutorial. Thank you.
The first thing I noticed was all the beautiful colors. I thought what a sexy fairy - if one should want to venture out into a fairy land - the best one I guess would be the one where all those little imps were sexy!
Your coloring with Copics has always been wonderful!
