    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Beth asked:" How do you construct a diamond fold card using 8 1/2 x 11 paper?"
    A: I haven't tried it out yet, but you should be able to create the same look with a 3" x 9" piece of paper. Score at 1 1/2" and 7 1/2" and follow the other steps in the tutorial.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Kim has an explanation for her modified Tri-Shutter-Card: "The primary reason I cut out the 2 panels is to lessen the bulk of the card and to add more interest. It looks pretty neat from the side. It also holds its shape better with the panels cut out."
