I love the Magnolia stamp set and when you combine it with the diamond fold card, it is gorgeous. I was inspired by a youtube video by Nola Creations and just had to try it.

To assemble card,
Score card at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2 on the long side.
With a pencil, mark the bottom of card at 2 3/4" and cut from mark to first score line. This is the front of the card. Once cut, align the back of the card and cut as well. This will give you that diamond look on the bottom of the card. Don't forget to erase the pencil mark.
Mat 4 - Glue the mat/DSP to the front between the two score lines.
Mat 3 - Stamp sentiment to white card stock in Early Espresso. Stamp the small flower in opposite corners in Petal Pink. Glue to mat 3 and adhere between the score lines on the inside of the card.
Mat 2 - line up square to the diamond cut on the bottom of the card and glue
Mat 1 - Line up square to the diamond cut on the front of the card and glue. Adhere Magnolia flower to the center of the square using mini dimmensionals.
cut pear pizzazz square in half diagionally and glue to inside of card, lining up with the DSP already glued down.
Stamp sentiment on Whisper white oval and glue to pear pizazz oval. Adhere to front of card and set card aside
To assemble flower
Using the sponge dauber, colour the middle of each petal, then dauber around the outside of the petals leaving the rest white. Curl up the petals slightly to gift it some depth, using a pen or bone folder.
Layer and glue the petals, starting with the largest, overlapping the petals to fill out the flower. Glue the renters to each other and puff them up a bit so they stand up then glue to center of flower. glue the leaves to the back of flower. Give it a minute to dry then glue to the middle of the inside diamond.
When you open the card, it will sit nicely behind the flower as a display. Lots of instructions but quite easy to assemble.
Until next time
