Double Diamond Fold Card (1) using Fable Friends - Video Tutorial

Today's Video shows you how I created these Double Diamond Fold cards! They are amazing! I love the shape of them and they are quick and easy to do :o)

I chose the lovely Fable Friends stamp set and decided to create Baby cards. 

This first one is in Mint Macaron. All the images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers.

This is the view from the side - it's very unusual!

Here is the card I created in the Video. I chose Calypso Coral this time as my main colour.

The Designer Series paper is from the Subtles 6" paper pack.

This is the back view of the card. I added a panel in the centre so you can write your message. Alternatively, you could just add panels to the back diamonds and write your message there.

The top view of the card - again an amazing shape!

This is how the card looks when opened fully out. It's just a rectangle with a little special scoring.

To get to the back panel to write your message, you need to open the card fully and then fold it in half longways. 

Here is the Video ...


Calypso Coral                                                                                          11½” x 5”

With the LONG side across the top, score down at:                          2½” and 9”

Make a small MARK at:                                                                          4½” and 7”
Turn the card stock to the opposite edge and repeat the MARKS

With the SHORT side across the top, score down at:                        2½”

Make a MARK ¾” from each of the vertical scored lines along this last scoreline and in towards the centre of the cardstock.


Basic Black                                                                  12.1cm x 6cm           (4¾” x 2”)
Whisper White                                                           11.4cm x 5.6cm        (4½” x 2 3/16”)

MARK the BLACK card along one LONG edge at: 3cm (1 3/16”) from each corner. Slant cut from each MARK to the TOP corners.

MARK the WHITE card along one LONG edge at: 2.8cm (1”) from each corner. Slant cut from each MARK to the TOP corners.

Basic Black                                                                  8.9cm x 8.9cm          (3½” x 3½”)
Designer Series Paper                                                8.6cm x 8.6cm          (3” x 3”)

Note: You may want to reduce the inches measurement by just a slither for the last 2 items, your ‘diamond’ will fit better if you do. (Slither = less than 1/16"). CM measurements are ok.

You will need extra Basic Black and Calypso Coral card for die-cutting and extra Whisper White card for stamping and die-cutting.
