You will start with a base that is 6″ x 11″ preferably 100 lb./300 gsm cardstock in your color choice. You will also need (4) 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4 squares of cardstock for your first layering and (4) 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ squares for your top layer; which can be a patterned DSP or a plain paper you have embossed as I have done above.
Now, for the scoring. Along the 6-inch side, score at 3″. Turn your paper to the 11-inch side and score at 3″ and 8″. To create the folds that bring the card together…fold your paper in half length-wise and “notch” at 3 1/2″ and 7 1/2″. Next, open up the cardstock and along the 11-inch side, make notches at 4 1/2″ and 6 1/2″, then turn 180-degrees and do the same at 4 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ just like the template shows.
Using your Leaf Tool and small ball Stylus, score to connect those lines as shown above. Refer to my FB video to see how this will fold in to form two Diamonds!
You will also need to trim two pieces of the same 100 lb./300 gsm cardstock for the bridge and place holder for your Oval center piece. Those both measure 1″ x 2″. You will score one piece, along the 2-inch side at 1″ and one piece along the 2-inch side at 1/2″ – 1″ – 1 1/2″ as shown. Refer to my FB video LIVE to see how these will be placed on the card.
The larger of the Ovals measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″; for the other ovals, just use what you have in the set that come next. I did 3 layers, but you could use only two and you can change the shape to Round or Square.
Have fun developing your own creativity with this card style.
