- Tear two corners of the tan vellum diagonally, so the top section
measures 6 1/2” at the top and 8” on the side, and the bottom
section6” on the side and 5 1/2” on the bottom. Using the
gold pen, outline the torn edge on each piece. Attach in the upper left
and lower right corners of the tan words background paper, inserting
a gold brad as shown.
- For the photo frame, crop and mat the photo on metallic gold paper,
trim to 1/8”. Cut a 6 1/4” x 7 3/4” piece of tan vellum.
Outline the edges with the gold pen. Turn the vellum over and line up
the diamond folds template to one side. Trace the pattern three times,
as shown, making sure there is even space between them. Turn the vellum
over and use the X-acto® knife to cut along the lines, then fold.
Cut a 1/4” wide strip of gold and weave it through the diamond
folds design. Glue the strip at the top and bottom and trim evenly with
the frame. Add a brad to the top and bottom of the gold strip. Attach
the photo to the left of the vellum as shown, and attach the vellum
photo frame to the background paper.
- Cut out the embossed paper words charms and using foam tape, arrange.
Add three brads to the bottom of the photo frame, evenly spaced, and
one to the top right of the page. Attach gold thread around the brads
to the gold charms as shown.
- Journal on the vellum and tear close to the words. Go over the torn
edges with the gold pen. Mat the words on tan vellum and trim to size.
Mat on metallic gold and trim to 1/8”. Add to the right of the
photo frame as shown.
A Tip From Arlene:
Arlene added a dramatic diamond fold design to her photo
frame by using the Diamond
Folds #3 Template. She created an elegant touch by outlining the
chevrons in the diamond fold pattern with a gold pen. She continued
the color theme by highlighting the torn vellum edges with the gold
pen as well, and by adding embossed gold charms and a metallic gold
