Inkspirational #313 Triple Floating Diamond Fold Birthday

 There's a new challenge up at Inkspirational - and the challenge is:

Now I have a few folds that I love to make - but since this is a challenge -  I went to Pinterest to find a fold I haven't done before.  

And I found this Triple Floating Diamond fold designed by Lisa.  Now, I cannot write out all of the instructions but you will find everything you need to know on the two links below if you are interested.
Here's a link to Lisa's blog where you can see 3 designs for the card and her Youtube tutorial on putting it together.

Here is a link to the Google Document list of what size pieces of card stock and patterned paper to cut. 

And here is the Triple Floating Diamond Fold Birthday card that I made.

Since I put the die cut mushroom up on foam dots on the middle diamond, I could slip the corner of the outside diamonds behind the mushroom which helps hold it open for display.

Here's a view looking down into the fold.
Here's the front opened up and flattened.
Here's the front with the outside diamonds flipped over.
Here's the back where I've put panels to write a note to the receiver.

Here it is folded up for mailing - it is a bit thick and I think will probably take two first class stamps to mail - I'll bring it to the post office to find out when I do mail it.  
It will fit into a regular A2 envelope.
Looking down into it folded up.

All of the patterned paper and the die cut mushrooms are from the Mushroom Medley Paper Die Duo  set from Divinity Designs.

So what is your favorite fold?  Or will you go and look for one you haven't done before?  
Either way - we hope you will  join us over at Inkspirational.
Please check out the lovely folds the rest of the DT has created and link up yours too!  
You have until April 19 to link up!
