|Hi Everybody! ReNae here, with the FotoBella Design Team!
Today for our tutorial, I am sharing an old favorite,
The Diamond Fold Card!
|And what is the perfect collection to use for
the Diamond Fold Card?
|The Bo Bunny Garden Journal Bundle!
|Here are all the supplies you will need! Patterned paper, chipboard stickers, ribbon, tape runner, a marking pencil, and a scoring board!
|Cut a piece of patterned paper or heavy card stock at 4" x 12"
|Score at 2"
|Score also at 10"
|Make a tiny ink mark at 6" on both top and bottom of paper.
This will be the mark for your fold.
|Using the ink mark as your guide, fold the paper down as shown.
|Do the exact same thing on the other side.
|Burnish fold. Open back up and turn paper 180 degrees.
|You should have created these folds.
|Unfold paper again. Hold strip vertically and pinch corners together where the score lines intersect, as shown.
|Repeat for the other side.
|Your card will look like this.
|Turn it over, and this is what the back should look like!
|Using contrasting paper, cut a background piece at 2 1/8 x 4 1/4
|Cut the square for the front of the card at 2 1/2 " all sides
|For the side triangles, cut another square at 2 1/2 and cut it horizontally down the center.
|You will use these pieces to decorate the sides of the card.
|Trim off 1/8 inch from the long side...
|so it fits inside the card perfectly!
|Adhere your triangles with tape runner
|Adhere the square to the top of the card, and select two flower images from the chipboard stickers pack.
|Select the "Life is Beautiful" chipboard piece and tap it with your stamp buddy or talcum powder to remove sticky backing.
|Do not apply powder where you adhere chipboard to card!
|Your card should look like this!
|Now it's time to tie the ribbon!
|The recipient unties the bow, to reveal a lovely card!
|You can embellish as much or as little as you wish...these cards are easy and fun, and take very little time to make! I hope you'll try making one with the Bo Bunny Garden Journal Collection!
