 Warning warning if you do not have the diagonal plate for your simply scored tool I bet you will want one ofter you see this cute card. I call it Fun Fold with Fancy Closure. It is very simple after you watch the video you will be surprise how easy it is well I find many tips when I was trying to make one and like always I don't keep stamping secret so you will find out many tips on this video and I have to say the best tip I think is how to un-glue a piece of DSP, card stock with glue dot are sticky stip without ripping your paper just for that tip you should watch the video it will save you lots of paper when you glue at the wrong place :) The video for the quick envelop will be on Tuesday so today it's only the card and greats tip.
 What you will need for this card is the Diagonal plate #125586 for 11.95 with your Simply scored tool #122334. One piece of card stock (i use Always Artichoke) square 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 score on diagonal plate at 4 1/4 all 4 side VOILA you have your card :) now for the DSP on top you will need 2 square at 4 by 4 cut diagonal and glue on top of triangle. The DSP on the card is Paisley Petal #122367 For the Fancy Closure I use the Full Heart Punch the new style #119883 for $19.95 or still available in the clearance rack $9.59 to view the clearance rack CLICK HERE and YES you get the sale a bration goodies with 50.00 order on clearance rack to :)  Plus I still have the 20% rebate till tomorrow CLICK HERE to check out the rebate :)  Now come watch the video and see for yourself how fun this is to make FYI if you are getting this by e-mail to view the video go to
