Good Tuesday morning and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Appreciate your loved ones, all of them. Send them a note or give them a call, whatever works for you. It’s never too late to let folks know you care about them. Thank you for joining me today – remember, I care about you! And welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop Group!
Today’s card plays along with the challenge for this week – a birthday card. And it’s a Diamond Flip card that’s fun to do, and did I say easy?
Gosh, the photo is a bit dark… but isn’t this a sweet card? Here’s a photo of it unfolded showing the outside.
And here’s one of it folded showing the inside. Notice the diamond on the left is ‘flipped’, or folded.
And one more photo… this one shows the front again, with the diamond fold to the inside. This way you clearly see how it’s all put together.
- Cut card base (here I used Granny Apple Green) 4 1/4 x 11 and score at 2 1/8 & 5 1/2
- On the 2 1/8 end, mark the center point, on the short side which happens to be 2 1/8.
- Fold card in half – on the 5 1/2 score line
- Cut from the 2 1/8 score line to the point mark on a diagonal, going through both layers.
- Now do the other cut from 2 1/8 score line to point. By cutting both ends at the same time, this makes the ends exactly the same!
- Cut a 3″ square, also from Granny Apple Green, and adhere to the 2 1/8 end, adhering just to score line. This allows that end to be flexible.And this is the end to be decorated.
- Add a 2 7/8″ square, this time in a coordinating color or Basic White. I chose Textured Shimmer Paper in Balmy Blue
- Stamp the floral image from True Beauty stamp set in Blushing Bride ink, then die cut with coordinating die from Organic Beauty Dies.
- Stamp the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink using True Beauty stamp set. Die cut with coordinating die using Organic Beauty Dies
- Adhere the floral image with dimensionals to the now diamond. Slip the leaves under this a bit and adhere with liquid glue.
- Cut a banner 1/2 x 3 1/4 and stamp with sentiment from Sentimental Park stamp set, in Merry Merlot ink. Slip banner just under flower and adhere with liquid glue.
- Add bow ribbon with glue dot: Twill Ribbon Combo Pack in Old Olive
- Add Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins in Petal Pink (Jan-Apr Mini Catalog)
- Cover floral image with Wink of Stella
- Add Balmy Blue panel 3 1/4 x 4 1/8 to card front
- Add Awash In Beauty DSP over Balmy Blue, 3 1/8 x 4 1/8
For the inside
- Add a 3 1/8 x 4 panel of the Awash in Beauty DSP to the panel on left
- Stamp the sentiment using Sentimental Park stamp set and Merry Merlot ink on the Basic White panel (3 1/8 x 4)
- Stamp the flower in Blushing Bride ink using the True Beauty stamp set, cover in Wink of Stella then add more Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins in Petal Pink
- Cut a 2 7/8 square from Awash in Beauty DSP, cut in half creating two triangles. Adhere to each inside end
This card fits perfectly in a regular size envelope and I forgot to take a photo! However… here’s what I did… Cut another piece of Awash in Beauty DSP 2 1/4 x 6, add to envelope flap & trim to fit. Stamp a floral image from True Beauty stamp set in Blushing Bride, adding a bit of Merry Merlot to the center with your finger or a sponge dauber, then stamp on front of envelope. Cover with Wink of Stella.
