When I saw there was a kitty digi, I had to make something with it.  As usual, I colored my kitty gray with my copics in honor of my Sasha.  Unlike Sasha, I gave this kitty a white tip to her tail.  I saw this Diamond Fold Card tutorial on YouTube recently and decided to give it a try.  The tutorial was easy to follow and except for matting each of my pieces, I stayed pretty true to her instructions.  I used a thick SU cardstock, this makes it a bit bulky.  I might try a lighter cardstock next time.  To keep the card closed, you have to hold it shut.  It is a 4" square when closed.

As you can tell there are lots of layers on my diamond panel.  I popped up the lacey square panel off the background diamond and then also popped up the kitty. I added some rhinestones, embossed a panel and some faux stitching to add some details.

Here's a view of the card from the top so that you can see some of the other folds.  It looks complicated but it truly is easy to make.  The downside of this card is having a place to write a message.  You could write it on the back of the side panels or get really creative and write it on the triangles (yellow on my card).

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific, Copic
Patterned Paper:  Three Bugs in a Rug (Frisky)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digi (Friends Purrever)
Ink:  ColorBox Fluid Chalk (chestnut roan)
Copics:  N0, 1, 3, 5, 7, R20
Embellishments/Tools:  rhinestones (Best Occasions), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots), Spellbinders (Lacey Squares, Classic Squares Large, Labels Four, Labels Four Small), Fiskars Decorative Corner Lever Punch (Bracket), Sakura Glaze Pen (on kitty's nose), Uni-Ball opaque white pen (kitty's tail tip), CM Fine Tip Black pen

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
