You’re Amazing – Mothers Day Diagonal Trifold Card – Kelly Bates

You’re Amazing – Mothers Day Diagonal Trifold Card – Paper Rose

Hello friends! It’s a new month and we’re only a few days away from Mothers Day so I thought I’d share a card that takes a bit of time to create but will be full of love once you’re done 😀 Let’s get into it!
Other products used: White heavy cardstock panel measuring 17.3cm x 30cm, score board, fine tipped scissors, liquid glue, die cut machine, shimmer pen.

Technique: I measured in 10cm from the edge of my cardstock on the long side and made a small mark, then scored the cardstock at that mark. I flipped my cardstock over, measured 10cm in and scored it at the mark again. I then measured 2.5cm down from the top left, and 2.5cm up from the bottom right and using my paper trimmer, cut a diagonal line from point to point. I then did a valley fold on the first score line (the larger one), and a mountain fold on the second (the smaller) so when closed the bottom flap open to the left, and the middle opens to the right. I then cut two 9.5cm x 6cm panels from the paper collection, two measuring 9.5cm x 10cm and one measuring 9.5cm x 14.3cm using a different watercolour coloured sheet for each piece. I then placed each of these up again my card base panels and eyeballed where I needed to cut each to go along the edge on the diagonal, cut, then glued into place.
From the left overs of the paper collection sheets I fussy cut a bunch of flowers and leaves that are on the flip side of the paper (done sitting at a market while it was quiet :D) I then glued all these flowers along each edge of the card, front and back making sure the flowers at the back don’t go over top of the ones at the front. I then die cut and attached the “you’re” fine script die 3 times from white cardstock and glued those together and covered in shimmer pen, then used the ‘amazing’ sentiment underneath which has been popped up with two layers of scrap cardstock, so they sit at the same height. Finally, I finished off with several crystals both on and under the flowers.
