The flower on this card is made with a medallion using the Fanfare Diamond Fold designed by Carolyninoz. At the end of the fold, I added another step, which was to fold back the little white corners like lapels, to show off more of the tile design. The diamond shaped tile used for the fold, the paper for the leaves and stem, the matting papers and the greeting strip were all computer generated using Photoshop. The embossing was done with the Cuttlebug and Distressed Lines folder on thin white card. The stem and leaves were cut freehand, and shaped with a needle tool to give the veining. Finished with a brad from Papermania in the centre of the flower.
Here is the tile I used for the fold.
Thank you to everyone who wished me a good holiday! We had a lovely, lazy time - hot, sunny weather, and a fabulous sea view from our villa balcony - about half a mile away down the hill.
