Tranquil Tide Fun Fold

This was a March Card Club card that we created tonight:

Isn't it pretty?

This unusual-fold card has a card base cut on the diagonal.  Take a regular piece of 8-1/2" x 11" Tranquil Tide cardstock; score lengthwise in half at 4-1/4"; turn the paper one-quarter turn and score in half at 5-1/2".  Place your paper on your paper cutter and cut diagonally, corner to corner, creating two triangular pieces of cardstock for two cards.

Then the fun begins:

Decorate the front with two pieces of Designer Series Paper (we used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Pack; cut DSP 4" x 5-1/4" and again cut on the diagonal, giving you two triangles to use for your card).  Next we stamped the sentiment from Ribbon of Courage on Whisper White paper with Tranquil Tide ink and punched it with a 1-3/8" circle punch.  This was layered on a label stamped with Label Me Pretty and punched with the Pretty Label punch.

Pop your label on Dimensionals on a circle cut with the Layering Circles dies and embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  And finally, adhere it all to a Silver Glimmer Scalloped Circle.

Add your decorated sentiment to the front of the card, gluing only the top left half of the circle to the top of the card (this allows your card to open in the middle).

Here's the inside (which we finished with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped with the lovely heart from the same stamp set).

A fun-fold card that is sure to be a hit to whomever is the recipient!
