Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #18

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog Hop. We are three friends with a love for stamping and scrapping, and would like to share our creative ideas with you on the 3rd of each month. There are only three stops on this hop, so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. When you finish hopping, be sure to check out the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!

This month we are making projects featuring Fun Folds. I put together a double diamond fold card using some awesome new products in the 2018 Holiday Expressions Idea Book. The finished card fits in a 6x6 envelope.

This card highlights three B&T designs from the new Boutique Paper Packet. I cut two tags using our new Thin Cuts- Fancy Tags set, and added "stitch lines" to the bottom of the Glacier tag using the new Thin Cuts- Decorative Borders set. The top tag is stamped with images from the Bunches of Love stamp set using Glacier and Peach inks. New Silver Glitter Gems, Mink Twine, and Silver Embellishing Thread finish off the design.

The fun folds act as an easel to hold the card upright. A personal message can be added to the back of the card.

Thanks for hopping by today! Hop over to Lisa's Blog and Donna's Blog to see what they created for you, then over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge. We hope you play along!

  1. What a cool fold card it reminds me of the mini fold album that unfolds like an accordian and love the design papers from Boutique you used...very pretty and creative. There's a dozen Double Diamond Fold cards, is there a particular tutorial that you used and can share? We miss you over at Color Dare. Maybe you can find some time to create for our Double Trouble Challenge, would love you to share some of your artwork, and fall and winter just around the corner the right time for scapping.

    1. Thanks, Sue! I meant to share how I made the card, but had a house full of company when I wrote the post. I'll write up a tutorial and post soon.

  2. Wow wow wow! Very cool and beautiful!

  3. I have not yet seen this fold and I would truly love to see you do that tutorial! Amazing, Susan!

    1. Thank you, Jean! I just posted the tutorial. I hope it makes sense!
