Tutorial: Double Diagonal Card

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
*Trimmer
*Double sided pattern paper or card stock (at least 8.5X11, can be 12X12)
*coordinating papers (scraps work)
*Bone folder
*pretties

DIRECTIONS

1. For this project I used a sheet of 12X12 double sided paper. You can use card stock as well- I just want patterns on everything. You need to start with a sheet of 8.5X11, so I cut the 12X12 down to the correct size.


2. After the paper is the size you need it, I inked the edges. This is not needed, but I love inking. Then you take one end of the paper and fold the corners to meet each other in the center, at 4.25" You are folding the 8.5" side.


3. Then you take the long side, and fold it all the way over to meet the new line of paper.


4. You then flip it over, exposing the other side, and rectangle it. Leaving about an inch (or so- it doesn't matter) to over hang.


5. That extra inch and tucked into the fold. The picture above shows the back side, where it's tucked in.


6. This is the front side. The folds create 2 pockets.


7. I then used my coluzzle to create 2 tags (you can use anything you wish: Sizzix, Quickutz, Cricut, etc, etc.)
8. And finish the card up by making it pretty with stamping & ribbons!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! (just out of curiosity do we know each other? I noticed you were ttc so I didn't know if you found me through something else. We are also on the horrible ttc journey. Good luck with that)
