|cyclamen side-swing card|
Yes I am sorry I am hooked on this side spring fold! I made this for a neighbour and friend of nearly 50 years, who is also a cardmaker - so I had felt this special birthday warranted me sending her a card with a special fold. I am hoping that she hasn't seen the fold before!
The cyclamen were some diecut decoupage that I have had for a while in my stash, and they are really pretty - the sheets come in a black and silver version and this version with gold embossing. I have used the silver version in the past, but the gold sheets have just been stroked until now! Matted and layered with brown/cream tones of papermania shimmer textured card stock, and I have used this again for the bottom trim of the main card with brown ribbon.
I really do like this shape of card, and am thinking of doing a much simplified version (i.e. without the fancy fold) but using the diamond shape on a plain folded card, and adding my Christmas toppers to it.
Thanks for looking.
