“A handmade card is a hug with a fold in the middle.” What a lovely expression I read quite a bit. But with a Fancy Fold card, the “hug in the middle” is replaced with a “Wow!” The card is still a hug, but a Wow! hug.
A diamond fold card surprises your friend with a Wow! smile right from the moment it pops out of its envelope and begins to open up. Even when I’ve made and am sending one of these cards, I find myself putting the folded card into its envelope and then pulling it out again just to experience the fun of it. Maybe I do this more than once. It really is a “Fun Fold” at this point.
This tutorial booklet has instructions for making two different Diamond Fold cards. One has a single diamond shape in the middle and the other has two diamonds framing the center of the card. Both are so much fun to make, but even more fun to receive. Each tutorial includes two samples with accompanying supply lists. I hope that these samples give you ideas for how to make these lovely cards with whatever supplies you may have on hand.
Enjoy the tutorials!
