Fun Fold card: Diamond Flip Fold
The first time I was introduced to this amazing fun fold card, it was on Pinterest, posted by the great France "Frenchie" Martin. I used the fold in a Something Out of the Ordinary class at some point during the last catalog, and it was a big hit to all class attendees. This card I made for a swap at the end of April, of course, uses a new stamp set, dies, and Designer Series Paper, and I think it turned out pretty amazing.
The card features the Sending Smiles Bundle and the Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper, which is a host item. Both items are new products in the 2022-2023 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalog. I felt like some of the flowers in the Designer Series Paper mimicked the look of the flowers in the Sending Smiles stamp set.
To create this card, I started with a piece of 11" x 4 1/4" Petal Pink cardstock. I measured and scored, then cut off the corners by using 2 1/8" as the measurement I used over and over again to make this card come together perfectly perfect. The cutting and scoring map I have shared below may not make things crystal clear, especially for those who learn better visually, but I think it's relatively easy to follow.
But the good news is that I also have prepared a video tutorial for you. You can watch it right here:
I love every single thing about this amazing card: the way it's cut, the diamond fold, the Designer Series Paper, the stamp set and dies, the colors...I think it turned out so great!
