Upright Diamond Fold Card

Hello Stampers,

Today I have been having a play with a new type of card folding technique ~ the Upright Diamond Fold.

It is quite different to any other card I have made before!

Upright Diamond Fold
Front of card

To begin I used a card base of 11” x 7” cardstock .

On both long sides make a mark at 2”, 4”, 6” and 7”

On the left short side make a mark at 3½”

Valley fold on the blue lines

Mountain fold on the red lines

Cut on the green lines

To make the diamond shape layer, cut a piece of DSP 3¾” x 6¾”

Diamond

Make a mark at the 1 7/8” on the short sides and 3 3/8” on the long sides.

Cut on the green lines.

Decorate as desired.

I have used the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper with Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, and the Designer Frames Embossing Folder.

Happy Stamping!
