Which direction?

Hi, Hermine here. This time with a diamond fold card.

 seen from the front

seen fron above

seen from the side

this is how it looks at the back

folded flat it fits a regular sized envelope


step 1:  Here is the link to a You Tube video on how to make a diamond fold card.
step 2: Mask of the areas you don't want to stamp on. Then take the Harlequin Diamond background 18920 and ink it with different colours distress ink and stamp on both sides. With Stazon Black you stamp on of the pen tips 18792 at the top and bottom of both sides and Compass 19248 also on both side. Remove the masks
step 3: take the same colours as for the diamond background and ink the spotty background 1461,  stamp this in a angle in the triangles, you onlye use half of the stamp.
step 4:  Stamp Docter Who 19251 with Stazon in the middle of the diamond fold and colour with watercolour pencils and a waterbrush. Now you are ready to fold the card.
Its just awesome to do and the receipient of these type of cards will be over the moon.
Have fun playing.

Warmly Hermine
