Upright Diamond Fold Card

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share with you a fun fancy-fold card which I have anxious to try.  Given our challenge theme this week is to create a Shaped card (anything but square) I thought I would give it a whirl and try to put my own little twist on it.


The card is called a Upright Diamond Fold Card and since I could only find instructions out there in Metric I have created my own and am sharing them with everyone.

Upright Diamond Fold Card Instructions

Here is a closer view of the inside:


And, there is the list of dies used for this project:

B162 – Lace Corner Deco B
B248 – Hugs Mix and Match
B263 – Tags 4
B266 – Tiny Things With Wings
B280 – Orchid
DL128 – Two Of Hearts
DL238 – Sophie’s Heart Mini Doily
XM-8 – Oval Scalloped

You still have time so I hope you can fit in some “crafty” time over the next few days  to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

Thank you so much for popping by today.  I do hope you enjoyed and can visit again soon.  I really love reading your comments, they brighten my day!!
