Fancy folds and Fuchsia

I haven't made a card for ages and was getting a bit twitchy. Time and inspiration were lacking.
Mrs A is currently challenging us to use Fancy Folds and/or Fuchsia, and a butterfly of course. Not for much longer though but I think I can just get in the gate. 
I tried out folded cards when I first started but not almost always make square or rectangle. (It is far less fiddle too!)
I know I have a template for a diamond top card somewhere but couldn't find it so resorted to  the Internet here. I've scaled it down though, it's really wee! 14cm tall. 
That is probably where I went wrong as the diamond doesn't quite sit square which is annoying but I didn't want to make it all again. 

The pink is very  bright but not shown well here. I do like it though. 
So popping into the Snippets Playground with this as it's mostly made of scraps. Time for a go on the swings. 
And the Butterfly Challenge.
I'll have another go at a photo later and catch up on commenting but I have to go shopping now. 



  1. Hi Alison! Ha this is one of the few folds I like to use for cards (am a plain folded in half type of gal usually). Such a pretty card and lovely to see you in the Playground this week :)
