Double Diamond Fold Card
You will sure to impress with this Card. You can really have fun with mixing DSP and Embellishments.
Here are the Directions;
1-Card Base- 7" X 12". Score on the long side at 3", 4 1/2", 7 1/2", & 9" and with a pencil place a notch at 1 1/2", & 10 1/2" (rotate the piece and notch again at the same measurements). With the short side, place a notch at 3 1/2" (rotate the piece and notch again at the same measurement). Using a paper trimmer place the side notch and the end notch on the cut line and slice a diagonal line, repeat on the other side. Score a diagonal line from the corner notch to the inner scored line, repeat on the other side creating a cross or "X". Then repeat this "X" on the other side of the piece.
Your Score Lines should look like this....
2- Cut Panels= Cut 6 Pieces of DSP of various patterns at 2 3/4" X 6 3/4". (for the Pieces on the ends that have the stamped images- 2 1/4" X 6 1/4", notch at 1 1/8" & 3 1/8"). *One for center panel-green DSP in the photo-no additional cutting
*Two are for the outer diamond panels-green DSP in the photo-( place notch on long side at 3 3/8" on both sides, then place notch on short side at 1 3/8" on both ends. cut a diagonal slice from notch to notch at both ends to create a diamond shape).
*One is for the long half triangle panels -the cross striped DSP in the photo-( place notch on long side at 3 3/8" on both sides, then place notch on short side at 1 3/8" on both ends. cut a diagonal slice from notch to notch at both ends to create a diamond shape. Now cut this diamond in half creating 2 half diamonds).
*Two are for small triangle panels-the floral DSP in photo-Cut each piece in half at 3 3/8"=4 pieces. With each piece notch at 1 3/8" at both ends- cut from notch to corner creating a triangle. Now place straight edge flush on the trimmer and cut in half=8 pieces.
** optional- create 4 more small triangles to be place on the back of card at the triangles that stick out of the card when folded flat (see last photo).
3. Embellish with stamped images, embellishments etc.
