Pile It On! Challenge June - Fancy Folds

It's the first Sunday of the month, so we have a fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today! The theme this month is:

'Fancy Folds'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps:
Prize - 4 Digis of the winner's choice!

I decided to make a diamond fold card...I have made one of these in the past, but I couldn't remember exactly how, so I followed this tutorial. I always think that the shape of this kind of card looks sort of like a Christmas cracker, so I made a Christmas card.The cute mouse image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is called 'Christmas Mouse Ornaments'...I coloured it using watercolour pencils. The paper is from the 'Christmas Cheer' pad by Lily Bee Designs, and the sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous (I split it into two separate words). I simply doodled some simple borders around the edges of everything using a black gel pen.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.

I've made those in the past, too, but haven't made one for years. It's adorable! The little mouse is perfect for the focal image. Thanks for sharing it with us for our Summer School challenge at Cut it Up!
