Time to Relax in the Sun

Howdy, everyone! I hope you’re having a great day! I’m back again to share another fun fold sample I created for Prickley Pear Stamps. This one is a diagonal fold and I’ve used the super cute Play Date on the Beach clear stamp set. It’s been a long while since I created a diagonal fold and I had forgotten how fun they are!

And besides being a fun fold, this card is paper pieced which is an extra added fun touch! I layered a couple coordinating papers on darker cardstock to embellish the diagonal panels. I stamped the image on lighter cardstock, paper pieced the elements, then cut it with a stitched rectangle die.

Here are shots of the card opening up. I embellished the inside panel with the same coordinating papers used on the front, cut diagonally, with the prints reversed. I stamped the inside sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the darker cardstock.

And one more peek… this is such a fun stamp! Who wouldn’t love to be invited to spend a day on the beach?!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
