Sunday Scoring Large Double Diamond Card with Lift me Up

Large double diamond by Heidi Smith Flutterbyheidi

Well this has been a roller coaster week emotionally, I was on a management course last week where i was studying from 8 in the morning until 11 at night, so I was tired, I then had my usual busy week at work in my day job, with a lovely class on Tuesday evening where we made the final part of the Sending Love suite projects which I am also doing as an online class.  Then I got my exam results and passed, so big relief…however we all came crashing down as my nephew has been admitted to hospital with a cyst tumour!  So as you can imagine ~I haven’t actually crafted this week and as a result my blog posts have been lacking detail too..  I will catch up but I hope you will understand that if my written details are not quite as thorough as usual…. and if you are able to offer a prayer for him I would be truly appreciative.

So my butterfly version of this card has proved massively popular, so I have revisited it to make a larger version using the new Lift me Up bundle as the balloon die cut needed a bigger base to balance the card out.

Score on the short side at 2 ½ ”

On the long side mark mark the card on the 2 ½ ” score line at 4 ½  and 7”

Join the marks to form a diamond shape in the centre of the cardstock

 

Fold from the left mountain, valley, valley, mountain
