Valerie is hosting this months theme called, Flip 'N Fold. Here's what she's looking for: "find interesting ways of incorporating folds into a project. For example, use an interesting new fold if you are creating a card, incorporate pieces or parts that flip up, down or open on your project, or put folded pieces of paper or fabric into your creation in some way.
We did a Diamond Fold Card in our crop group, and I thought it would be perfect for this.
I stamped her on glossy cs using Color Box Archival Dye Wicked Black ink. I then used DI Old Paper with an applicator and applied on top of her. (Thanks Val!), then inked edges with DI Vintage Photo. Gave her a few wrinkles here and there and tore the corner. As I told some friends, the story is her sweetie has been carrying her photo in his wallet for some time, that's why she's a little "worn and torn"!
Holding her together is a decorative paper clip from K&Company.
Here are some closeups, and what's inside:
Once I did one, I couldn't stop! I made 3 more; A bird, A flower and a butterfly. Here they are:

The Diamond Fold was really fun to make! There are great tutorials on YouTube.
