Hello friends and it's Friday already!! YAY!!
I'm ready for a great weekend with my family...we have lots to do!!
Today starts another challenge at the
Our lovely hostess Anne would like to see "MORE than one fold"!
I decided to try out something new this time that I've never done before...
This is called the Diamond Fold card and you can find the complete instructions on how to make one yourself following the tutorial I found HERE on Splitcoast Stampers. I really had so much fun making this one and it's alot easier to make than what it appears...trust me! :)
This is what the view of my creation looks like when you untie the ribbon and open up the card a bit. It has lots of dimension to it and expands out to 12 inches long. I added the doily on the inside edges along with the flowers. The back scalloped die cut square was cut in half so you can open up card.
And here's the same photo that you will see on the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog.
This is what the Diamond Fold Card looks like when it is closed up and the ribbon is tied around the card to hold it all in place. The folded/closed up card measures 4 inches square...so it would easily fit into an envelope....the surprise is when someone opens it! :)
I've colored this adorable Ponytail Tilda with Copics and carefully cut her out and mounted her on top of the die cut circles over top of the diamond shape center. The scallops on the circle have liquid pearls and I've also added a "friendship" tag to the top right of the card which you can fully see when you open up the card.
And here's another view of the creation from a different angle so that you can see how the diamond center sort of "springs up" a bit. I think it gives your creation some great dimension!
So if you are looking for a different "fold" design with more than one fold, I recommend you try one of these out! They're so much fun! :)
