...and Happy Hump Day - 3D Wednesday, that is - with My Creative Time. YES! More Halloween! Today we are all making 3D cards. I've never done this diamond fold before so I thought I'd give it a shot for today's project. I have to say I love how it works, and even my hubster was impressed with this piece!
This is the back view of the closed card. The ribbon is actually necessary for this particular card as I made the inside a tad bulky, which you'll see in a minute.
This is a side view of the card without the ribbon closure. Isn't it a cool fold??
And this is the inside/backside. You can see how it would be a little bulkier with all the extra paper pieces on it, than if I had left it all white. The sentiment is from the My Creative Time, Just For You stamp set; spider and webs from Treats for My Sweet.
Message on the front of the card using My Creative Time, Treats for My Sweet stamp set - sentiment and bat are both on this set, btw. I used stickles on the bat and the boo for a little added pizzazz.
For my flower embellishment, I used Martha Stewart punches.
I loved this fun fold so much I decided to make another one. :) This time a Christmas card. I love the light blue and gold color combo of this OLD Wild Asparagus paper I've had in my stash, so here you go. Much simpler than the first version. There are so so so many things you can do with this idea. You could even do it the other way around so that it opens in the front with the 3D diamond shape at the back. Either way, it's a lovely fold.
Thanks for coming by the studio for 3D Wednesday. Be sure to also visit the other designer blogs for more fun 3D card ideas!
