This is the last of my samples made for the Dirty Dozen challenges at Splitcoaststampers, and I LOVED learning how to make this Origami Diamond Folded card. If you'd like to see a great tutorial on this technique, my fellow Dirty Girl Wendy has made a video for you HERE.
You begin with a sheet of desginer paper cut to 11" x 11". A couple of folds and you end up with this unique and special card. Here's the front of mine.
The bow and a brad not only embellish but I attached it so that it anchors the card when it is shut. You can just tuck the flap right up under the brad to hold it.
The shape on the front is a diamond but I centered a circle over it and stamped using images from the Fruit & Flowers set. It's great paired with the matching DSP, don't ya think?
You just have to try one of these to see how cute they are, the photos don't do it justice. Here's what you see when you open the left flap.
Here it is all the way opened.
I really like the way you can do a progression of sentiments. Hope you've enjoyed today's card, give it a try!
