It’s colour week at Just Us Girls, and I was sure I couldn’t use this colour combo. That is until I found some beautiful vintage style dsp I had in a 6×6 paper pack that is many years old. The background was olive, with rust coloured flowers (and a few gold ones).

It so happens I’d recently seen a video on the diamond fold, and wanted to give it a try. The fold itself is very easy, but adding all the fiddly bits of paper, not so much.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s very impressive, but it would have to be for someone very special for me to make the effort again.

Anyway, back to the card. I decided a lovely gold flower would finish this off, so I pulled out my Stippled Blossoms (SU) and stamped it using Summer Sun (SU retired ink) for the base and Delicata Gold ink for the details.  I also used gold around the edges of the greeting, which is from Inspired by Stamping.

For the sides, I added a greeting on the right (also from IBS), and added some small Stippled Blossoms flowers to the left side front.

For those interested, here is the video. (Uses a diagonal plate.)

There is a longer version if you’d prefer that one. (No diagonal plate used.)
