DDC #32 - How Do You Fold

 Well I'm back with another card for Digi Darla's and this week's theme is "How Do You Fold". I saw this video by Dawn Griffith

I cut a piece of Bo Bunny 'Forever Fall' paper 11"X 11". I folded the paper corner to corner so you end up with a large triangle. As you line the paper  up the long side will lie vertical on the score-it board, the point will face right and you will score at 4 1/2". Then you will line the paper up so the long side will lie horizontal and score 5 1/4" and 9 3/4". Then you flip the paper over and score at 3" at each end. These 2 ends are pushed forward to create a diamond fold. I cut 2 pieces (2 1/2" x 4 1/2"left side) of Bo Bunny red double dot and cut another 2 pieces (2"x 4") for the right side. I just used both sides of the Bo Bunny paper for the sides. I then cut a piece of Brown Bo Bunny dot paper for the centre which is 4"x 4 1/2" and 2 - 2" squares for diamond fold. I printed "Life is like a Piano", Sunny Bouquet and the Happy Birthday all from Digi Darla's onto shimmery white paper. I colored the Sunflowers using Prismacolor pencils and added bronze glitter for the centre. I  added some colour to Life is like a Piano using Prismacolor pencils and pumpkin Smooch ink along the edge. With the Happy Birthday I added some Tangerine and Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk to tone down the white paper. I too added some Pumpkin Smooch ink to edge.

Pin It Now!
