Not only is it fancy fold time, it’s new product sneak peek as well. Join me today to learn how to use the new Nature’s Prints bundle while creating a multi-diamond panel card. This card is beautiful as is, but could easily be adapted to a lovely Mother’s Day or birthday card.

 I spotted this “new to me” fancy fold on Sam Calcott’s YouTube Channel, Mixed Up Crafts.  She is a very talented artist that I admire very much. Her fancy folds always intrigue me. So, when I saw this one, I just had to give it  try. Because I’ve used the new, soon to be released, Nature’s Prints bundle, I could also offer you a little sneak peek.

This fancy fold is a little different. The card front is created onto a base of window sheet. Some of you crafters out there also refer to it as acetate. That’s a little unique and a great surprise for the recipient.

I’m in love with the images in the Nature’s Prints stamp set. It’s no surprise since I’m a nature girl. By using my blender pen on a couple of the stamped images, I was able to add a little shading. That’s a quick and easy way to get around coloring the entire image.

Some of the diamonds highlight the new Pretty Prints DSP and some are embossed with the new Fern 3D embossing folder. You’ve gotta add that one to your shopping list for sure. 

As a little added feature to this card, it’s always on display. That’s thanks to little stopper/brace added to the inside. That means you have the entire back of the card to decorate and write a heartfelt note.
