Origami diamond fold card with Ain't Love Grand stamp

My club members got to make this origami diamond fold card, which uses Cheery Treat dsp and the Up, Up & Away and Ain't Love Grand stamp sets. The paper and second stamp set are hostess items anyone may select with a $150 order! The new scoring tool (in the Holiday Mini) makes this card so simple. The top flap inserts into the front diamond shape, and the Concord Crush knot of ribbon holds the whole card closed.

Here's the inside of the card. We stamped the hot air balloon in Basic Gray ink, and punched a circle out of patterned paper in the same Cheery Treat dsp pack for added interest. I colored the hearts with a Melon Mambo marker.

This is a closer view of the inside. This card uses an 11" x 11" piece of patterned paper, folded in half and then scored. Here's a video so you can see it being made:
