Watercooler Challenges #29

For today's Watercooler Challenge, Bev chose a "Special Folds" challenge for us.  There are so many different ones out there that it was hard to decide which one I wanted to do.  Then, I came across one featured over at Split Coast Stampers and I knew I had to give it a try.  Laura's Upright Diamond Fold instructions were easy to follow and the hardest part was trying to decide what designer series paper to use.  :-)  Since this is a birthday card for a friend who loves black, white and red, I used some of the papers from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.

Here is what the card looks like opened up.  It is hard to see all the folds with it being black and white but the one Laura did will show it off better.  It's a fun card to make and if you'd like to give it a try, click HERE for the tutorial.

Stamp Sets:  Best Day Ever (retired) Floral Wings, Endless Birthday Wishes; Inks:  Mint Macaron, Real Red, Tuxedo Black Memento; Card Stock:  Whisper White, Whisper White Thick, Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack; Accessories & Tools:  Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies, Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

We'd love to have you join us and show off your favorite "special folds" creation.  You can find all the details at the Watercooler Challenges Blog.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. What a stunning card Marsha. I love the Diamond fold design you chose and appreciate the link to the tutorial, as I would definitely like to try this out. Your mastery with matching up the DSP is superb, as is the choice of stamps. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Penny! I'd not done a diamond fold card before so it was fun to try something new.
