MC Apr/16 - Double Diamond - ECD Happy Birthday - The Woods Would Be
I haven't made one of these double diamond fold cards in eons and thought it was time to make one again. BIG GRIN. There is a template on my website to create one this size from 7"h x 12"w cardstock (plus all your decorative papers; plus a hint on how to make it from 8.5 x 11" papers).'m using Designs By Ryn "Hibiscus" and "Hummingbirds 2" stamp sets.

I'm also using an Elizabeth Craft Designs A WAY WITH WORDS die "Happy Birthday" also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a quote (The Woods Would Be...") stamp and several sentiment stamps ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set; "Let Them Eat Cupcakes" 4 pce set) from Quietfire Design.

Click on any image to see all the details and descriptions, more views, as well as the template to create one yourself. Enjoy

Yogi, I love how this card folds!!!! Brilliant design! Your placement of the hummingbird (left) and hibiscus (right) highlights this layout perfectly with how they come together. Nicely done! Thanks for sharing :)
