Birthday Diamond Fold Card

I decided this week to learn a new skill. I needed a birthday card for a friend's son, so I decided to try making a Diamond Fold Card.

Directions for making a Diamond Fold card can be found at Creations with Christina. Thanks Christina, you did a wonderful job! My only extra tip is you need to use a medium weight cardstock for the base. I originally tried to use DCWV cardstock and it cracked and did not line up evenly. When I switched to the Echo Park cardstock it was easy!!!!

Cardstock and Paper: Echo Park Summer Days Collection
Chipboard: Echo Park Summer Days
Ranger Stickles: Magenta, Waterfall
Ink: StazON Teal Blue
Stamp: Hero Arts Decorate Your Own Cake

Have a day filled with small wonders:)
