The challenge this week at Cricut Cardz Challenge - Cardz TV with Mary is to make a card giving thanks. With the American Thanksgiving coming up in a couple of weeks, I thought I'd try something new. I've never made a diamond fold card but I thought I'd give it a whirl. I was very pleased with the results.
I started with some heavy weight patterned cardstock that I scored to enable the card to fold properly. I used my Martha Stewart score board which really made this task much easier and way more accurate. I then added some autumn designer paper from K & Company to the diamond shape as well as the side panels. Next I cut cornucopia and fruit images that I found on the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge which became the focus of the card. I used my Copic markers to add shading and dimension to the basket and the fruit. The last thing I added was the simple sentiment - So Thankful.
We are all truly thankful and privileged for all we have!
