Secret Garden Diamond Fold Card

This is one of the cards we made at my March Stepped Up Cards Class:

It is a diamond fold card (find the instructions to make the card base below), and features the Secret Garden stamp set and Framelits from the Spring Catalogue. I embossed the flowers with White Stampin' Emboss powder, then used Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens to colour them (the blue flower was done on card stock vellum). I embossed the sentiment with white as well.

Card Base instructions:  4” x 12” piece of card stock. Score @ 2”, 4”, 8” & 10”. With the Diagonal Scoring Plate for the Stampin’ Score, place the long edge of the base against the top edge. Score diagonally at 6”. Flip the card stock (other long side against the top) and score again at 6”. Turn the card stock over (back is now on top) and score diagonally at 6”. Turn the card stock 180 degrees and score again at 6”. This should create a diamond in the centre with an X on each side, and a rectangle at each end. Fold on the X score lines to create the card base.

Inks: VersaMark, Stampin' Write Markers (So Saffron, Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Primrose Petals)
