Diagonal Fold Card

I got the idea for this card from Francie Martin, she has a great YouTube Video on it.

Instructions                                                                                                                                                                             
Score cardstock in half in both directions                                                                                                                 
          With long side at top score at 5 1/2"                                                                                                                     
          With short side at top score at 4 1/4"                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Cut card stock in half from corner to corner.                                                                                                                      



   CUTTING TIP:  place the blade in the center and cut up then down.                  

                                                            

Fold on the score lines to make the diagonal flaps. Fold with long side to your left and fold the top flap down and then the right flap to the left.

                               
Cut one of the Night of Navy and the DSP from corner to corner.  Note cutting tip above.  

Cut the DSP face up:  with the short side on top turn sheet to the left and cut corner to corner.    

This way it will fit the diagonal flaps.   


Emboss the Night of Navy triangle with the Garden Trellis TIEF                                                               

Attach the Night of Navy and the DSP triangles to the corners.     

Cut oval out of Whisper White and stamp desired sentiment with Night of Navy Ink.                      

Attach the sentiment to one of the diagonal flaps. This will help keep the card closed.                         
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Congratulations. You made a card!!
