Fab Scrap Double Diamond Card using C88 Floral Dreams Collection

This fabulous card is up at Fab Scraps. It uses C88 Floral Dreams Collection which is elegant and rich in colour. Their are super fun vinyl sticker accents too. Details below.

Paper: C88 Floral Dreams Collection 003 Sprinkles, 004 Starlight. C87 Journal in Time 008 Travelogue
Chipboard: DC88 006 Make a Wish
Accent: ST88 001 Fairy Princess Vinyl Stickers
Other: Copic markers, Cardstock, SRM Sticker stitches,

1: Following the pattern instruction sheet below from Castlepark Designs make your card base out of cardstock.

STEP 2: Trim and fold as per instruction sheet above.

STEP 3: Using a paper collection you have so many options to decorate the folded spaces. You can make the pieces an exact fit or do like I do and make them 1/8” smaller on all side to leave a border accent. I love the pop of colour prints with a white cardstock background. (tip – trace a 2nd base and cut these pieces apart and use them to trace the pieces – some pieces are the same identical size just flip them around to fit the space – keep these tracer pieces in an envelope stapled to the pattern sheet for re –using over and over again). The centre one is easier so just mark the paper and cut it.

STEP 4: Using the stencils you made trace and cut the pieces to fit all sections.

STEP 5: Glue the pieces especially careful to get to the edges of each.

STEP 6: This photo shows how your card will stand up.

STEP 7: I copic coloured the chipboard and then matted it with a piece of paper to make it pop. I added some of the vinyl sticker accents to finish the card.

STEP 8: The last accents are the stitch looking SRM stickers. If you have a sewing machine you could stitch on for real.

STEP 9: The card fold down on both sides to fit a large envelope…. Or custom make you own.

Thanks for visiting today. Can’t wait to see you again soon.
