Have a Beary Happy Day with an Origami Diamond Fold Card!

Happy Saturday Everyone!  We here in Massachusetts are preparing for Hurricane Irene to hit us - Kent and I got all our lawn furniture put away as well as all the garden decorations that might blow away! Please be safe if you are also in the hurricane's path this weekend.

 It's my turn to post once again and I have a really fun way to fold your card today -  It's called an Origami Diamond Fold and you can find a tutorial on how to make it  here on Wendybells blog.

Here's my card all folded up - The top flap tucks into the square under Rhubarb -  I used Rhubarb's Cupcake digitial image on the front


 As you open the card -  I adhered the "It's Your Birthday" sentiment from Ocean Paradise on the right flap and I tied some honey dew twine around it  - did you know that Korin now stocks a wonderful variety of colored twine??
 
And inside I used the digital Bear Sentiment "Have a Beary happy day!"
 Not sure you can see it -  but I put Dazzling Diamonds on the frosting of Rhubarb's Cupcake just to add a little sparkle!
I hope you'll try making this fun Origami Diamond fold card!   Have a happy safe weekend everyone!
