Hello Sunshine


For those who have forgotten me – I am still here, and really not sure why I stopped blogging as I have still been making cards so have lots to share – will try get back into all again.

Well I want to share this card with you as its really pretty, and part of a mega bundle, click the link to see more

The kits come with main card base, backing paper, pyramage layers and an all in one sheet envelope!

I trimmed the card base and then used stick and stay to glue the sheet to white 300gsm card, and I did the same with the base layer of the pyramage, I also used the backing paper on the back of the pyramage piece as it looks prettier from the back than plain white card.

The card is really easy to do, there are several lines printed so I just scored them all and following M or V folds gives the Upright Diamond Fold card, the folds simply push towards the centre which then forms the diamond shape

I cut out the 4 shaped pyramage pieces and used 1mm pads to build up.

To finish I added 3 pretty yellow gems for the centre of the flowers, tied a bow using lemon satin ribbon and placed it below the flowers, then used an X-Cut butterfly punch to punch 4 lemon and 4 pale blue Bazzill cardstock, I then stuck one lemon and one pale blue back to back using a little cosmic shimmer pva glue.

The 2 lemon facing butterflies were stuck to the card but the blue were just tucked in.
The envelope was cut out and scored then folded on printed lines.

Please note – the gems, ribbon and butterfly punch are my own and do not come with the upright diamond fold card!

Bye bye xx
