So, a few weeks ago I asked for any requests for fancy fold cards (any further suggestions most welcome, by the way!) and one of my lovely downline suggested a Double Diamond Fold – So Kathryn this is for you!
When I initially looked at this card, I did think ‘oh dear, that looks awfully complicated’ but really its quite simple, just folding the cardstock – no cutting involved!
I have used the I Like You Hostess Stamp set for this card, coloured with 4 of the lightest Blendabilities – Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Pumpkin Pie. I love this way of using my Blendies – really its just line colouring, and you could just as easily use the Stampin’ Write Markers. Using the stamped image as a guide, use your markers to add lines of colour, it just gives that hint of a shade rather than going for a full blended coloured look.
Cardstock = 10 x 4″
Score on the long side at 2 and 8″ making marks at 4 and 6″ on both sides
Score on the short side at 2″ before turning back to the long side, and marking the card stock on that 2″ horizontal score line at 3 and 7″
Then using a ruler and stylus (or ball tool) join the marks to form a diamond shape in the centre of the cardstock – the marks at 4″ should join with the 3″ mark, and the marks at 6″ should join the 7″ mark
Fold the cardstock from the left hand side; mountain fold, valley fold, valley, mountain.
Holding the edges of the cardstock push the edges together and the card should form!
In addition to the originally piece of cardstock you will need 2 pieces of coloured card measuring 1 /34 x 1 3/4″ and a piece measuring 2 3/4 x 2 3/4″
For stamping you will need 3 pieces of Whisper White; 1 measuring 2 1/2 x 2 1/2″ and 2 measuring 1 1/2 x 1 1/2″
