Stampin up Wow Diagonal folds class!

This week at the Wow class we are making some amazingly simple Wow Diagonal fold cards! I had been intimidated to try these but completed them all easily with step by step instructions! First up is the commonly referred to as the Diagonal Gate fold inspired by barbstamps:

We are using the Fox builder punch and stamp set and the fun paper that coordinates with it!

 Next up is the Double Diamond Diagonal fold card:
I just love this paper called Blooms and bliss! The timeless tags thinlits is so elegant!

Finally I saw this design by flutterbyheidi and had to case it for the Diamond front diagonal card!
Again I am using blooms and bliss paper and the lovely stamp and die bundle called Special reason. This bundle has it all, not only does it cut and stamp but the words in the stamp set are a real bonus! Also come to class and see the double fun these dies create!
