Diamond Fold

Hello Everyone!  Sorry I am late posting my card for the One Stop Craft Challenge challenge this week.  This weeks theme is "More Than One Fold".  I chose to do a diamond fold card.  I recently saw this on You Tube and I thought I'd give it a try.  I have to say it is a whole lot easier than it looks!

Start with a piece of paper 4" x 12".  Score with your Scor-Pal  at 2", 4" 8" and 10".  Next make a light marking on the back at 6", this is where you will start your diagonal lines at.  Here is a template that I created for it:

Below are some pictures to give you a better idea on how I folded it.
I used my cute little hAnglar girl to adorn my card and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft, my absolute favorite spot to purchase paper flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Lisa, wow that looks great; the card looks pretty complicated. Unfortunately I have a scor pal in cm. which makes it very difficult to do in inches :(
HUgs, Frea
