Origami Diamond Fold Card /R.A.K

Here's a new card pattern that I attempt to do today, since I like the way it turned out I made a total of three..  It was very easy to do, I'm not sure if any of you tried doing this pattern, but I found doing it with CS is a little hard to work with... So instead I used pattern paper and it folds and creases better and you get a better diamond shape on both ends of the cards... It took me two attempts with the CS and I said forget it, unless you use the thinner CS maybe that would work out - who knows until you try it... For the pattern paper it doesn't matter if it's double sided because with the folds you will only see one side of the pattern...
This also would be great to make for an invitation too!  So here they are:

Stamp is sitting Tilda, colored with copic markers, added Sandylion essential stickers, ribbon
Marvy Uchida Scallop punch and digi image for the stool.

Sentiment (Hello) from Hero arts and cleared embossed, MS scallop rectangular, digi image inked with copic markers,
sentiment inside of card is from Lawn Fawn and ribbon.

Digi image colored with copic markers, Spellbinders (Floral Doily Motifs), gems , stickles and
sentiment from Hero arts collections... BTW all the pattern paper is from Target...
My last card is a R.A.K. I received in the mail today, it was from a great BF Cyndi.. Thank you sweetheart for creating this pretty Thank you card.  Look how cute this is, love the coloring and she is one of my fav stamps too...Hugs Cyndi!

Toodles for now and be back soon!
Hugs to all of you!
