Diamond fold Christmas card

This is the design I used for all my Christmas cards last year but unfortunately I forgot to take photos so I could blog them! I thought I’d make another one while I still remembered how I did them!

I made the card base using 12 by 12 inch pearlescent card. I cut this at 4 and 8 inches so I could make three cards. I used this tutorial at splitcoaststampers on making diamond fold cards and scored it using my Big Score Scoring Board. This is the folded, front  and rear views.

I used an old image, papers, card and a stamp which were all from magazines and unfortunately I have no idea which magazines or the designers. I also used old ribbon and punches. I added new adhesive pearls and coloured them with a metallic red Promarker.

I made a box envelope with card from this lushFirst Edition Scrapbook Paper Pad- Love Letters.
