Blossoms... four ways - Part 2
This card is one of those ones that packs a little something extra! It not only folds on the diagonal, it folds with a vertical flap as well. If you want to try it out, all you need to do is take a square piece of paper and fold it in half lengthwise and widthwise. Leave this piece folded from top to bottom. Now, to make the diagonal, just fold and secure down. If you have a card that is 5 by 5 when folded, you will want a strip of paper that is 9 by 4-1/2. Fold this in half so that you end up with a 4-1/2" square. This will be layered to the inside of your card, so that when you open the diagonal flap, you also open the card's flap. Layer some coordinating paper on the inside of this peice and that is your base! From here, stamp, embellish and you're done! This card was stamped with the same Hero Arts stamp using black and red marker.
p.s. I might celebrate TGIF with a little candy to dole out! I just bought it today. It's fun. It's Christmas! Make sure to check back!
