Remember the card I made for the Inspiration Emporium challenge last month? I created a tutorial for the Diamond fold card for Splitcoast and it’s being published today. My sample is the same as the Fragment card, except for without the fragments. Instead of  those, I paper pierced the edges of the square.

I chose another image from Flourishes Spring is Sprung set. I just LOVE that set. I stamped the bird nest in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (Nest: E41, E42, E43, E44   Eggs: BG000, BG01, BG02   Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17   Branch: E23, E25, E27, E29   Sky: B12, B000, B0000).

he image layers were adhered to a Diamond Fold card base created out of a 4″ x 12″ piece of October Afternoon Weathervane paper. I created a tutorial for it, but that won’t be published until the end of May. It’s pretty easy though. Score your strip at 2″ and 10″. Mark the center of the strip on each side and fold the paper down and back up.

The 2″ x 4″ panels were stitched to a 2 1/8″ x 4 1/4″ piece of black cardstock, then adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Curved Rectangle Nestabilities dies. A doily was cut and half and a half was adhered on each panel.

A sentiment from the Spring is Sprung was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the retired Five in one Tag die from Spellbinders. The center of the tag was colored with Copic Marker BG000. The tag attached to the card with the White May Arts Organdy Ribbon that was used to tie the card shut.

Here is a video for the visual learner:


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
