Whilst browsing Pinterest the other day I came across a card that had been made
with a Harlequin die. I haven't got one of these, so I set about and made my own
diamond stencil. I used my Stampin' Up! Triangle punch to make the diamond shape,
first of all in paper - and since then I have made one in acetate.
This card was made using the paper template - which was a trifle dodgy
as I was working blind placing the diamonds. In fact I am quite impressed with the result, it will be a lot easier with the acetate one.
Here's the finished card, that I have decided to leave blank, in fact I shall make a few that will be suitable for all occasions, and will just need a sentiment.
The colours which I used and stippled into the stencil were:
Real Read, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point.
The flower is from the !Love and Sympathy" stamp set,
but I think that this card with the lovely bright colours will lend itself to many different occasions.
Just to give you an idea of how difficult it was to place these diamonds, here is my paper template!
As I said earlier, it will be a lot easier to make the next card now that I have made one out of acetate. Enjoy!!
