Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday everyone! I have a great card for you today, it’s a diagonal opening card! I love cards that open a little differently than most “store bought” and when I saw this tutorial, from Holly at Ribbons and Glue, I knew I had to make one. I changed the size of the card to a 6″ x 6″ but you could adapt this technique for any size card. Using the latest release from Heartfelt, the Peacock Paisley Collection, made this card go together easily. It’s all there for you, everything coordinates, stamps, dies and paper!
