Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!

"Fun With Folds"

Create a Card that is anything but a shape or a 2 style.Examples: Gatefold,Waterfall.

Hi my friendly Bloggers!
For my card this week I made a diamond fold.I thought it would be hard but it was not, it was a fun and different card to make.For the image I drew a little princess and added Peachy Keen" Princess Face Assortment",for the cardstock I used Martha Stewart "Playful pink paper pad"and used Emma's stamp for the sentiment.Hope you all like it!


Diamond Fold
 4" x 12" piece of paper
 Then score the paper at 2", 4", 8", and 10"
plus mark two little score dots at the edges of the paper at 6".

This week we have two prizes. The first one is a package of action wobbles from our Whimsical Designer Glora. 
Thank you Glora for sponsoring us with these fun scrappy wobbles:)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog
Hope you play along at Whimsical wednesday this week :)

Oh Cindy, this is so cute. I started one of these cards a month or so ago & never finished it. I just couldn't get it right. it wasn't the folds that was giving me the trouble it was laying out the patterned paper. I'm going to study yours and go back & retry.
