ORIGAMI DIAMOND FOLD CARD - WHY NOT SWING

Good morning hope you are all well I have been a little out of sorts this weekend so forgive me if i havent visited you i have been trying to stay off the computer to help. 
However I have to show this amazing fold for a card I came across at Splitcoast stampers. As you will be aware I am guesting for a while at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS and boy am I enjoying it. The stamps we are given to work with are just a dream  and the team are so friendly and the lovely Suzette is just the best. 
Well each month we have a stamp release and i was given a secret stamp no one knew except Jan our lovely leader and we where asked to make something other than a card unless it was a fancy fold one. 
Today is my day to d├ębut my stamp and it is this gorgeous little girl on a swing called 
WHY NOT SWING 
which you can find in the shop here
why not head on over and checkout the rest of the stamps in the shop
if you pop along to the INSPIRATIONAL blog you will see each day a stamp made up into a stunning creation by one of the team from the release.
Well the card I am sharing with you is called a ORIGAMI DIAMOND FOLD CARD
and although it may look complicated it really isnt and I think i will be making a fair few of these.
1 tip though do not use card for the base and do not use very thick paper a good weight but not too stiff.
I will not bore you with all the details but just share a few pictures if you like the look of it then hop on over to the INSPIRATIONAL BLOG I have done a step by step tutorial on it with lots of pictures.
so here is my card
