Squash card

Dear Crafters,

Here’s a nifty technique for a squash card or triple diamond fold card. I’m not entirely sure what it is called but this is mine!

Basically, I started with 3 squares of card measuring 6″ x 6″. Score each piece in half, rotate 90 degrees and score in half again. Then score from one corner to the opposite corner but only do this once on each of the 3 pieces.

Each of the individual squares are now 3″ x 3″ so cut 8 DSP squares at 2-3/4″. Then cut 6 of these (saving 2 for the front and back) diagonally and paste them to the inside of the card.

Also cut 4 x blushing bride squares measuring 2-3/4″ and glue them to the centre squares then stamp on them.
