Hi there, today we have a fun sketch to work with over on Cute Card Thursday. I used the diagonal lines to create a different fold of my card. There is a lot of “waste” of pretty Design Paper when cutting the triangles, but I have had enough paper left of this line to decorate both flaps in the inside as well.

Most of the time I adhere the ribbon permanently to the back of the card but than I need to leave the ties longer so, it can be closed up again, so this one just simply slides on and off the card to hold it shut (layers of card front are anyways heavy) this way the bow stays always pretty.

Stamp: Magnolia “Snowy Hug” through Sir Stampalot
