Countdown to Christmas - Project 1
Serene Snowflakes in a Diamond Fold Card


Diamond Fold  Card - Project 1 in the 
Countdown to Christmas series


This card is a funky folding card and created using the Serene Snowflakes stamp set.  It is one of my favorite sets!!!! Love it!  And for some reason, while looking through my paper and inks, I decided not to go with the traditional holiday colors and to go neutral!

Can you tell me what SU colors are used in this sample?
 (without and before reading the PDF! LOL.)

Each week I'll be sharing another holiday sample with you but so will all the Countdown to Christmas team! So be sure to visit their blogs and get even more inspiration and view different  samples of this Diamond Fold Card technique.

To learn how to create this card, sign up for my newsletter and join the Countdown to Christmas mailing list.  Each week you will receive a PDF tutorial on how to make the card I showcase.  

Newsletters will go out every Friday night at 7 pm EST.  The posts, like this one, are scheduled for Fridays at 8 am EST.

Remember to visit all the wonderful artists in this year's

Thanks Gals!!!
You can't see it clearly in this image…but the very vanilla card stock is embossed with the Northern Flurry Textured Impessions Folder. It added a nice subtle snowy touch :D

thanks for visiting!!!!

Kudos on a beautiful card. Love the color combo - is that Sahara Sand with very vanilla and pewter embossed snowflakes?

Love neutral carss. This one is quite elegant, Who would have thought to use the hardware. It's a perfect touch.

Very beautiful! Looks like the colors are vanilla, crumb cake & soft suede, which makes it look like a vintage type of Christmas card. Gotta CASE!

Heather Wright-Porto said...

Hi Terri!!!
You are good!

Instead of the Crumb Cake I used Sahara Sand….but they are very close and hard to see in a photo. Great job in picking out the colors!!! :D :D

Thanks for participating and sharing!
