ID: VSN August09 - Corners - Gratitude B&W
 x 7"h

Created: August 7, 2009
This is another  of my submissions for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the October issue with the theme of "Corners" but in Black & White.

On this card I used Art Deco origami photo corners which I love.

To make the corners see below. I used Hero Arts Floral Borders clear stamp set and Versafine Black Onyx stamp pad on regular white copy paper.

I cut a piece of black cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Floral Screen #37-1610 sideways, moved the folder and ran it through again to cover the whole piece of cardstock which was larger than the folder. Attached my photo corners and adhered it to the main white metallic card (Wasau Royal Metallics #46321).

I then cut a square piece of crystal flecked white textured paper, adhered my corners and rubber stamped my quote (Quietfire Design "Gratitude") with Versafine Black Onyx and then adhered it to the main card.

Cut 4 squares 1.5"w x 1'5"h. (makes 4 corners)

To get the corners like on the smaller white textured square, you need to fill the whole square piece of paper with color or a pattern. To get corners like the ones on the black rectangle cardstock, you need to color or put pattern on only half the square.

Fold your paper in half and then half the other way. Fold your paper diagonally and then again the other way. All your folds should be valley folds to the inside.

Right side facing you, and pattern on the bottom, create mountain folds on the diagonal fold lines to your left, which should create a horizontal valley fold which tucks in to create the triangle below. Do the same on the right side.

Fold over the right flap to the front and middle of the triangle. Crease fold. Do the same with the left flap, fold & crease. You know have your corner. I tacked them with a touch of glue when they were put onto the card.
