just add ink challenge

they have been doing some cool stuff with fancy schmancy card folding
all the cards were awesome and very inspiring 
but 
i have to say 
i was mightily pleased that my new favourite diamond fold card 
was shown off by mae collins
so inspired by mae i am showing off my two christmas in july efforts
using the welcome christmas stamp set
and attempting a vintagey look
 here i have added an antique brad, some embossing and gorgeous satin ribbon
here i added a tiny tag onto my vintage ribbon plus a bit of scallop edging on the side

if you want a really simple diamond fold tutorial please check out my previous post

cheers ears

They look hot! You did a great job. Love the embossing and stamps. You need to enter Bah Humbug challenges if you are making Xmassy stuff this time of year! I love the red card so much. It is perfection.

I think you attained "vintage" beautifully with both of these cards. They look great on a diamond fold. Thanks for playing at JAI this week ♥

I just love the sponging and embossing on both these gorgeous vintage cards.

I am glad you enjoyed making these Diamond Fold cards as I did, you certainly achieved the vintage look your were after in both cards. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week!

Great work with both cards. I really like the vintage brad and colour pallete of the first one. Thanks for playing along at JAI this week.
