Bah! Humbug! #43 - Fancy Folds

This card is called an Exploding Diamond card and I got the instructions here. It folds down to a 4 x 4 square and would be very useful for all sorts of occasions. It lends itself quite nicely to be turned into a cracker card. My only suggestion when making this card is not to use too thick card stock and not to score the card at 6", just mark it with a pencil.
The image is from Crafters Companion and the backing paper is from PaperArtsy called Rum N' Raisin.
Thanks for stopping by and do feel free to leave a comment - all are appreciated!

    What a gorgeous exploding card. I love your green deisgn paper. It looks stunning against the red background, and with the added snowflakes and Christmas tree your card is just perfect.

  4. I love this fold...I saw it one other place and now I saw it on yours...I also love the different types of folds...I must try this. Thank you for sharing and I will go to the site that you left me to follow.

  5. Janet,I would love that about the email. It will take a year or less to plan, but time goes by quickly...thank you so much.

  6. Your fancy folds card is so exciting, Janet. I can't wait to get to my art room to see if I can make one. I'm sure it won't be 1/2 as pretty as yours but I can try. You always have such fascinating new techniques and ideas. We all learn from you.

  7. Your card is lovely. It is ages since I made a diamond fold card. I find they are so hard to get just right. Super colour and love that tree.

  8. Fabulous diamond fold card ... another one I have seen many times and admired, but never managed to get around to making myself. I think I need a good shake LOL! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
