Relax, It’s Your Special Day

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Wednesday and another dose of Heartfelt Creations inspiration featuring the oh so cute Winking Frog Collection.  Today’s card is a fancy fold that I thought was a rather fun way to focus on the sweet images in this collection.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Derwent Water Color Pencils (Cedar Green, Juniper Green and Pink Madder), Versamark, Pink Peony Embossing Powder, Crystal Stickles and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by taking a piece of card stock 5 3/4″ x 11 1/2″ and score on the long edge at the 3″ and 6″ marks.  Next, on the opposite end of the scor lines make a small mark at the 9″ mark and in the center of the card stock on the 5 3/4″ side and measure down 3″ on each side and make small mark.  Join the marks together to make the top of a Diamond and cut off the excess.  Finally, flip the card stock over and scor from the top edge of the newly created Diamond shape to the opposite side of the 3″ scor mark and repeat for the other side.  This will define the Diamond shape and give you a cross on your scor lines.  Repeat again with a layer of designer paper cutting each pieces a little smaller for a layered effect.  The flowers were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Pink Peony Embossing Powder before finishing them off with Crystal Stickles.

You can find a template here to demonstrate the shape of the card.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!
