I often cruise Pinterest looking for inspiration and found a Diamond Fold Card. After reading through tutorials, it seemed the card usually came out as a 4" x 4" square but I wanted a slightly bigger card so I followed directions from this Blog: Crafty Maria's Stamping Blog and added a 1/4 inch, making my card 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square; just right for a standard A2 envelope (4.25" x 5.5").
Here is the front of my card. I created a Birthday Card and used the Photo Play Collection Pack 12"X12"‑French Flea Market. The papers in this Pack are gorgeous!
Instead of leaving the front as a diamond shape, I used one of the cut outs provided in the paper pack and adhered to the diamond on the front.
I stamped the sentiment on a plain white piece of cardstock and adhered inside; to the back of the diamond shape.
I added a lace paper doily, cut in half, on either side of the fold and also placed a whole paper doily right underneath the oblong cut out. Presto....a beautiful Diamond Fold Card. Give this fold a try...you won't be sorry and it's very easy to create.
Till next time, Happy Crafting!
