Woo-hooo...I've made a diamond-fold card--my first!!! This card style was on my to-do list, so now I can put a check mark beside it...LOL.
I haven't made this card for any occasion so I didn't put any sentiment on it. I just wanted to know how it works. I watched the first half of this video tutorial on how to make the folds and then ignore the rest and decorated it my own way...LOL.
I consider this more of a mini card rather than a full size one, because when the card is all folded up, it becomes a 4-inch square card--you need a smaller box envelope to mail it out.
This adorable image is of Celebration 1 Tilda from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012. She is coloured with markers. I used the Old Swedish Lace Border doohickey die to border by circle panel. Both image and die are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.
