Hi there 🙂 I’ve made a card using the Diamond fold today. I had the template in a file with assorted patterns, and figured it was time to make a card with it….since it’s been a few years since I’ve done one like this!! I used this cute image, from Lemon Shortbread, as the focal point of this project. I colored her up with my Prismacolor pencils, then cut her out with an oval nesting die. I matted the image in the same dark blue CS that I formed the card base from. I found a pretty DP with blue snow swirls on it, and cut 2 lacy squares out. One I used as a background for the girl, the other, I trimmed and glued to the base. I had a few silver poinsettias left from a while back, and some silver and white snowflake embellishments that I picked up on clearance after Christmas. I tied a floofy (?) bow, and put one of the poinsettias in the center, then arranged the rest of the embellishments around the image and on the base. Finally, I put a small dab of white liquid pearl in the centers of the white snowflakes, to give them just a little “extra”.
