Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.

You will need :

8″ by 8″ White Scallop Card
The Paper Boutique A Traditional Christmas – Embellishment Pad 
The Paper Boutique A Traditional Christmas – Coloured Card Collection 
The Paper Boutique A Traditional Christmas – Paper Pad With Toppers
The Paper Boutique Wreath Collection – Poinsettia Die Collection

White Card
Large Pearl Bead
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape

Instructions:

Choose two coloured cards, two backing papers and one square topper.
You will also need the long topper and a sentiment from the embellishment pad.

To make the twisted easel card base score the 8″ by 8″ card front from corner to corner and fold inwards.

Twisted Easel Base Design

Layer one:
Cut a square from one of the coloured cards measuring 19 cms by 19 cms.
Cut a square from one of the backing papers measuring 18.5 cms by 18.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the bottom of the card base.

Layer two:
Cut a square from the same coloured card measuring 19 cms by 19 cms.
Cut a square from the second backing paper measuring 18.5 cms by 18.5 cms.
Cut both in half from corner to corner.
Matt and layer one half of each together and attach to the front fold of the card base.

Layer three:
Cut a piece from the second coloured card measuring 19 cms by 5.5 cms.
Cut the long embellishment topper to measure 19 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the bottom of the card base using foam pads.
This will act as a stopper for the front of the card base.
Then attach the sentiment from the embellishment pad to the bottom of the card base using foam pads.

Layer four:
Cut a square from white card measuring 14 cms by 14 cms.
Cut a square from the first coloured card measuring 13.5 cms by 13.5 cms.
Cut a square from the second backing paper measuring 13 cms by 13 cms.
Matt and layer all together and attach to the front fold of the card base.

Layer five:
Cut a square from white card measuring 9.5 cms by 9.5 cms.
Cut a square from the first coloured card measuring 9 cms by 9 cms.
Cut a square from the second coloured card measuring 8.5 cms by 8.5 cms.
Matt and layer together along with the square topper and attach to the centre of layer four.

Layer six:
Using the leaf from the posy embellishment die collection, cut two out from the first coloured card.
Attach both to the bottom right corner of the square topper.
Then using three of the poinsettia die’s from the wreath collection, cut the largest out in the first coloured card and the next two out in the second coloured card.
Matt and layer together and attach to the centre of the leaves.
Add a pearl bead to the centre of the poinsettia.

Layer seven:
Cut a square from white card measuring 18 cms by 18 cms and cut in half from corner to corner.
Matt and layer this is with the other half of the coloured card from layer two.
Then attach this to the back of the card base on the front fold to write a message.
