Diamond Pop Out Card

Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday!  Today I want to show you a twist on my Double Diamond Fold that I did a while back. It really is a great card that showcases the gorgeous paper in the Snow Kissed Collection.

HCPC-3751 – Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-708 – Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag Die

HCDP1-269 – Snow Kissed Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Green Card Stock, Glitter Paper, Versamark, White Detail Embossing Powder, Distress Markers (Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain), Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

This card, when closed measures 6″ x 7″ when closed.  To make this card you will need a piece of White card stock that measures 12″ x 7″.  Place the card stock on your scoring board and scor at the 3″ and 9″ marks.  Flip your card stock over and make a small mark on the top and bottom of the card stock in the middle at the 6″ mark.  Now you will need to scor starting at the top Left corner down to the bottom 6″ mark.  Repeat from the bottom left corner up to the top 6″ mark.  Repeat this for the right side and your completed card base should look like this.  For the designer paper simply do this a second time and use the pieces as templates to cut paper from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection slightly smaller.  Along the top I placed a ribbon sentiment strip from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection which was the perfect addition.   The center of the card was decorated with the relief cut from the the Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag Die cut from Glitter paper and layered with a pre-made image from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection.  The snowflakes from the Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag Cling Stamp Set was stamped on both White and Green cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die before attaching them as shown.  The Snow Kissed Spruce Cling Stamp Set was stamped on White Card Stock using Tuxedo Black and cut with the matching die and colored with Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain distress markers.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!
