A Cluster of Diamonds

Good Morning all

Today i am showing a batch of Diamond fold cards, these kept me quiet for a long while!  All using the Tattered Lace Diamond Fold die set.  Very photo heavy so you might like to sit down with a nice cuppa and your fav biscuit😊😊

I used the die to cut twice into the card, like i did for my dad card, this works quite well.  Then folded and scored it all into shape, a bit fiddly but it doesn't eventually come together. I rounded the corners on this one.  Spellbinders butterflies and gems to finish.  One sheet of 6x6 paper is the ideal size for these cards.  

Papers are MME 'Miss Caroline - Dilly Dally'

and showing the back and where i put the sentiment using matching papers. 

No2  Spellbinders butterflies cut in co-ordinating papers, pearls and glitter glue to finish

Papers are - Teresa Collins 'fabrications'

again showing the back and the sentiment. 

and below a selection of single diamond folds, they are quite small but i love them and enjoyed using all my designer papers.
