Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a super-easy Diamond Fun Fold Card! The card closed measures 4 inches square. I also give you a quick tip for making envelopes when you don’t have one to fit your square card!
This is an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches. I stamped and the puppy images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on some of the pattern paper and fussy cut them out. I popped them up with some foam tape.
I cut a panel of 110lb Neenah white cardstock to 5 1/2 X 4 inches, stamped and masked the scene stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend the sky (Tumbled Glass) and road (Black Soot & Iced Spruce), and I used a cloud stencil for the sky. I colored the grass area, tree, and bench with Copic markers and I stamped the grass sections from the stamp set with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink. I cut the panel down to 5 1/4 X 3 3/4 inches.
I cut a piece of the pattern paper to 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 inches for the back panel.
If you want to make scene cards but are not sure about drawing your own the “Spring Scenes” stamp set is perfect. There are so many options with this one set for perfect scenes every time.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, on a piece of white cardstock. I used my Misti to position the stamps to fit. By using a stamping platform I was able to get the sentiment positioned and stamped. Then I cut it down to 1/2 inch wide and about 3 inches long, to finish it off I popped it up with foam tape and fishtailed the one end.
I used a black gel pen for the one puppy’s nose and eyes, and then cut out the bow from pattern paper after I stamped just that small section!
For all of these cards, I used the Nuvo Drops over the stencils and let it dry about an hour in a half to two hours.
This card is a 5 1/2 inch square card base. I used the largest heart die and cut it out the abstract stencil, then I used the second to the smallest heart for the sentiment that I cut out from white cardstock, I cornered the right edge of the card base. I stamped the sentiment on the small heart. I adhered the heart onto the card base in the center and then popped up the sentiment heart in the middle of the large heart. to finish it up I used some sequins.
This card I made similar to the first except its A2 size or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch card base in pink and I used a piece of pattern paper that I cut down to 4 X 5 1/4 inches for the back panel. I cut out the largest flower from a stenciled piece and then the second smallest one for the sentiment in white. Stamped the sentiment on the smaller flower. Layered it onto the card base and finished it off with a few sequins.
My final card is A2 sized and I used a black card base. I cut down the stenciled piece to 4 X 5 1/2 inch and adhered it to the card base. I used a piece I smeared the stone drops on to cut out the hello sentiment from the die and a piece of black card stock for the shadow. I adhered it to the center of the card. I used some black sequins and I used the sparkle pen all over the sentiment and shadow.
To create this card I started with an A2 size cardbase or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I stamped the images I wanted to use with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out.
I cut the glitter paper for the front panel to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and cut out a 3 1/4 inch circle towards the top center of the card and then cut out another circle from white card stock with a 3 1/2 inch die.
I adhered all of the tree images to the 3 1/2 inch circle panel and popped the mouse images up with some foam dots. I adhered the 3 1/2 inch circle to the top of the card base and then adhered the glitter paper to the card base lining up the circles. I stamped the sentient “Cold Hands” from Hero Arts Ink in Moss on a white strip of card stock. I cut the banner down to 4 1/4 X 3/4 inches and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with some foam tape.
To finish it off I stamped on the inside of the card the sentiment “Warm Heart”, as well as, the image of the mittens with the string of them creating a heart. I colored in the mittens with copic markers.
I heat embossed with clear Embossing Powder the floral swag after stamping it with Clear Embossing Ink. I trimmed down the panels to 4 in. X 51/4 in. and used a pink card base and a yellow card base from my stash.
I used Distress Oxides and blended them over the card panels. Then sprayed them with some water and blotted them off.
This is an A2 or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch card. I used the Knit Picky Fall Paper Pad, found a piece I liked and cut it down to 4 X 5 1/4 inches for the front panel. I cut an oval out of the center with a die to create a frame.
I used Sticko “Autumn Pumpkin” and SandyLion “Tree With Leaves” stickers to create a scene. I popped up the images with foam tape to finish off the card.
Both of these are A2 size cards or 4 1/4 in. X 5 1/2 in. and both card bases are from my stash.
For the first card, I used the “Wild Animals Paper Pad” and used the sheet as a panel that was cut to 4 in. X 5 1/4 in. I colored the chameleon and flower with Studio 71 alcohol markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out. I cut out a circle with a stitched circle die and then put it on overlapping the panel and cut off the end. I used the same paper as the circle to heat emboss the sentiment, and I popped up both the chameleon and sentiment. On the inside of the card, I added another sentiment from the stamp set that said: “Don’t ever change”. I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the chameleon image.
For the next card, I blended Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, and Peeled Paint, over the Palm Leaf stencil and a piece of the pattern paper from the “Wild Animals” paper pad. I love how it turned out! I cut it down to 4 in. X 5 1/4 in. I stamped the sentiments from the stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Popped on the Doodle Pop Koala and used a few sequins from a previous FOTM kit.
