Tutorial for,double twisted Easel card

Hi guys,
As,asked for here is the tutorial for the double twisted easel card,

Should have said,do the other side the same,as the first.with another piece of,4 by 4 inch,card
Some,people have said,that twisted,or,double sided,cards have not stood up they fall down,However I have not found this at all. If you use,good quality card stock and crease,really well,with your bone folder,it works perfectly. Another tip is,when you add your card to the fold,make sure,you fit it correctly,not half way up,lay card flat,and adhere were the tape is shown on the picture. Any,info,or questions,you can always email me or leave a message on here and I will get back to you.
Here is my finished double,twisted card,
 This,is the card,folded,flat,the back,and the front,of the card

Image,sweat pea card,Kanban,and SU EK border punch,ribbon,SU buttons,flowers,leaves,glitter, the sentiment is Kanban.. Image colured with prisma,pencils.
I have used,one normal card,which opens,on one side,and just the one piece of 4 by,4 card,to the other side this is entirley up to you I just like to be able,to write in the card,when giving it to someone,
Right hope this is okay,I am now off,out to the doctors,so catch you all later hugs cheryl xxxxxxx

Oh whilst i was looking for some challenges,I have just realised,that,sweet,pea stampers,are looking for a DT,and as I adore,these stamps,I thought I would enter this card,and the other one,which I made,into a double twisted easel card.
So I thought,I would give it a go,so I shall enter this,they asked for,2 of your favourite cards,and as my,twisted,easel card was also  a sweet pea stamp i thought I would enter that too.
Challenges, I,just adore these stamps,as they are fantasy mystiacal and oh a joy to colur which makes cards for me such a joy to do. So yeah to say I would love to be on there team is bit of an understatment
Sweetpeastampchallenge DT,my second,card is on the third post below,hope that is okay.
sweetpeadreamchallenge anything,but you must use a sweatpea image
catchthebug,different folds,
Here is the card,again,
