OWH Diamond Fold
The Stars & Stamps blog had a tutorial on making a Diamond Fold Card. The challenge I found was to create a place on this card to write a message. Here is my solution:
After folding the diamond fold from 4" X 12" paper, I cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" X 5 1/2", cut in half vertically. I glued each 2 3/4" X 5 1/2" cardstock to end pieces of diamond folded paper.
Next, I cut a base card from white cardstock, 5 1/2" X 8 1/2", scored in middle. I adhered the back side of the end flap from the diamond folded section to one side of base card.
Next I adhered the other end flap to the other half of front of base card, using ATG gun.
This created a regular card to write a message. I decorated the front of card with Class A'Peels corner stickers. I attached a square of the heavy weight textured cardstock to front of diamond fold, the stamped the Thinking of You onto a square piece of the same paper I used for diamond fold. and glued it to center.
The diamond folded section does not open, but does stand out from the card.
