Origami Diamond Tuck Card - I

Hi again!  This is another creative fold card.  I decided to name this card "Origami Diamond Tuck Card" because I thought that best describes this particular card, although I did not design the fold myself.  This card base is made from one 12x12 piece of cardstock intricately folded into this wonderful shape.  I loved it so much that I decided to make more than one variation on the same card fold.  This is the first of three postings, all with different themes.  So let's get started!

This is a birthday card I made for my new son-in-law.  The papers and embellishments are neither masculine nor feminine and could be used for any kind of greeting.
These are photos of the card when it is closed.

The upper fold slips inside the diamond to hold it closed.

Each side panel opens to reveal something new. (I just love unexpected surprises!)  :o)

This was a darling stamp I found in the dollar bin--perfect for this application, don't you think?

I used some paper scraps and punched some small leaves to embellish the inside panels.  I hate to waste any beautiful patterned paper!

Of course, I simply HAD to make a cute envelope to go with the card!

That's it for this one!  

I hope you enjoyed this post.  I have a couple more variations on this card base that I will share with you soon.

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day!
