Diamond pop up fancy fold...

Today i was playing wth card folds and came up with this diamond fold pop up card. This may well have been done before but its new to me and I felt like I had invented the wheel.

Fancy folds are great fun but can sometimes be tricky to master... says I looking at my pile of reject failed fancy folds on my desk ! But this fold is so easy even I managed it so I am sure you can too.

I used the Birthday memories paper to decorate it with. When I first saw this paper I rolled my eyes it just oozed 1970's and so I initially dismissed it . But I like to try everything even Items I think I may not like. I totally changed my mind this paper is everything..its fun... its bold ... its bright and its just awesome ..I love it ! There is so much going on in this paper I had lots of ideas just flowing.

Tere is a Youtube step by step tutorial how to create the card base and for ... you can then decorate how you choose.. I have list below of the supplies I used and I will also leave measurements. But for now grab a brew get comfy and watch the tutorial ...
