Variation to the Diamond Fold Card....

Here's a cool variation to the diamond fold card that I showed you this week on Technique Tuesday. 
 Here's what you will need to make this card:
  • Simply Scored & the diagonal plate
  • 1/4" grosgrain ribbon (retired but I am sure you still have some laying around, right?)
  • Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder
  • Word Play stamp set
  • "Congratulations" sentiment (I used a retired set but Curly Cute or Sweet Essentials would work perfectly)
  • Basic Black and Real Red ink (or your school colors)
  • Cardstock in Whisper White & school colors
  1. Cut the Basic Black cardstock to 4 1/4" x 9 3/4".
  2. Place lengthwise in Simply Scored and score straight at 5 1/2".
  3. Place diagonal place in Simply Scored and score at 3 3/8" and 7 5/8".
  4. Flip up paper to the other side.  Score again at 3 3/8" and 7 5/8".
  5. Cut along the two 7 5/8" score lines to make a point at the top of the card.
  6. Fold backward along straight line.  Open up.
  7. Fold forward along diagonal lines.  Press and flatten.
  8. Take a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White and score diagonally at 3 1/4".
  9. Flip up paper to the other side and score again at 3 1/4".
  10. Cut along the two score lines to make a point at the top of the paper.  Adhere to inside of card.
  11. Stamp the arrow in Real Red ink on a scrap from the Whisper White and cut out.
  12. Stamp the "Go confidently..." image in Basic Black on your card and attach red arrow using dimensional.
  13. Stamp "Congratulations" in Real Red at the bottom.
  14. Take your ribbon and fold it in half.  Make a half knot in it approximately 1/4" from the fold.
  15. Cut along the length of the ribbon ends just inside of the outside edge.  Using your fingers, pull the strands out and you will get the tassell look.
  16. Take a 3" x 3" piece of Basic Black cardstock and emboss.
  17. Place brad through the ribbon and the center of the embossed square.
  18. Attach to the diamond portion of the card and you are done!
