Hello friends - It's time for another monthly Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!!! Yippeeee!!!! This months theme is 'New Beginnings' and you can find all the details by going HERE.
I have a little 'New Baby' Card with a twist to share with you today :) I wanted to try something a little different and was so inspired after seeing Kazan Clark's stunning diamond fold card, that I decided to give it a go!!
Basically if you're like me and didn't know what these cards do, the recipient receives this....
and it opens out to reveal this...
and a slightly different view...
I used small heart border included in the 'Nordic Spring' set by Waltzingmouse and stamped in red ink across a piece of blue cardstock, adhering it onto some cute polka-dot patterned paper when I was done. I addded some pretty blue ric-rac trim along the top and bottom edge of my heart border after making my initial score lines onto the cardstock.
I stamped the cute little bunny image from the 'L'il Buddies' stamp set onto more of the same polka-dot patterned paper and went in with copics to give him a little extra definition. The label on which he sits is from the 'Very Vintage Labels No.1' stamp set - it's a little hard to see from the pictures but I used two different stamps from the set but the red labels one outline seems to stand out the most.
My Diamond Fold card is obviously A LOT simpler than Kazan's, but the principle is the same and I'm really pleased with the end result. There's a fab tutorial and video HERE too if you fancy trying it for yourself.
I used the colours from this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge and could have kicked myself, as I was just too late to play along!! Silly me!!
Edited to add: I'm also entering this card into the
Thanks for looking! Have a great day :)
