Watch this video: https://youtu.be/jJBwQyyza6g to learn how to shape the Enchanted Mums.

Instructions:

Start by creating the base out of card stock using this template as your guide.  Make sure you use your bone folder to get nice sharp folds!  Following the same template, create another layer out of your favorite designer paper.  I prefer to use a sheet with a nice pattern but you could always create pieces out of different patterned papers.  Once you have all of the scor lines marked, cut all the panels apart and also trim off 1/8″ on all sides so that the panels will fit onto the card base.  Glue the panels onto your card base.  Using the Arianna Lace Die, add a few die cuts to inside back panel.   Finally die cut some of those lovely Enchanted Mum flowers and distress with Worn Lipstick before layering with leaves from the Delightful Daisy collection distressed with Peeled Paint and the vine from the Enchanted Dragonflies Cling Stamp Set also distressed Peeled Paint.

For those of you who like a step by step version here are a few pics to help you out.

Step 1

Start by creating the base out of card stock using this template as your guide.  The card stock is 12″ x 7″.

Step 2

Place your card stock in your scoring tool and score at the 3″, 4 1/2″, 7 1/2″ and 9″ marks.

Step 3

Flip your cardstock over and make small pencil marks on the top and bottom at the 1 1/2″ and 10 1/2″ marks.

Step 4

On the Left and Right edges of the card make a small pencil mark at the 3 1/2″ mark.

Step 5

Draw a line to join the pencil marks.  The area marked with the X’s will be cutoff.

Step 6

Remove the panels marked with the X’s.

Step 7

Your finished card stock base will look like this.

Step 8

Place your cardstock back into your scoring tool aligned on the Right side, your card will be in an angle as pictured.  Scor down the 9 1/4″ mark and then rotate your card stock up to align the other Right hand side to the side of your scoring tool and scor again at the 9 1/4″ mark.

Step 9

Repeat the above step for the Left side but this time scor on the 2 3/4″ mark.

Step 10

Since the scor lines do not show up well in the pictures, this is what your finished card will look like after your scoring.  The Black lines will be for the Valley folds and the Red lines will be for the Mountain folds.

Step 11

Starting with your horizontal lines, fold each line using your bone folder to ensure a nice sharp line .

Step 12

Starting from the Left side of your card, fold the first angled scored line in the opposite direction of the horizontal fold.

Step 13

Repeat with the other angled scor line.

Step 14

Repeat for the Right side and when you are done your card should look like this.

Step 15

Fold your card closed and once again use your bone folder to get that nice sharp line.

Tip: At this point I normally place this folded card under a nice heavy book so the card will hold it’s shape easier.

Step 16

Repeat the above steps with designer paper to cover your card.  Once you scor your lines, cut the pieces slightly smaller to give you the layered effect.  Once you have all your pieces cut I like to arrange them on my card to ensure that I have the pieces in the proper locations.

Step 17

Attach the decorative panels in the correct location and decorate your card as desired and then try to give it away!  If you are like me I have a problem letting go of my completed cards.  lol 🙂

Note: the finished size of the card folded, is 7″ Tall x 6″ Wide so it is a little larger then the typical 5″ x 7″ card.

  13. gorgeous card and great directions–I am just having one problem–do you have little “ears” at the top and bottom of the big front diamonds? I’m thinking maybe you just don’t fold the card flat and then those little flaps don’t show? Thanks very much.
