I have a class coming up and I'm teaching this 2-way fold card layout. This layout is so versatile because it can be used on scrapbook pages or as a card! I altered these instructions to make my card. These instructions call for a 4 1/2" square card base and then each layer is 1/2" smaller than the previous layer. My card is on a 6x6" card base. The second (pink floral) layer is 5 3/4 x 5 3/4". The diagonal layer is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" folded (5 1/4" x 10 1/2" unfolded, uncut).

I adhered making memories green velvet ric rac trim to the diagonal cut to give the layer a delicate look against the scalloped inside layer. This card chubbed up from all the ribbon and brads, so I used an anchorette to hold it all together. The bib is from Unity stamps Sweet Heart Girl. It is paper pieced. I stamped it on yellow cardstock, cut it out and coloured the little inside border of the bib with my limepeel prismacolor. I stamped the bib again on the co-ordinating white background floral and cut out the inside of the bib and adhered all the layers.

I used the largest Nestabilities scallop circle on cardstock which was folded in half and cut through both layers at the same time to create a small scallop note card. I love this look! I wanted this card to have a bit of a shabby chic look, so I sponged most of the edges, which co-ordinated with the look of the designer paper - a favourite older Crate pattern 'Twirl' oldie, but still a goodie!!!
