Diamond pop up easel card

Good afternoon fellow bloggers!

I cannot believe how fast the days are just flying by lately.  Time sure does go quickly nowadays.  

I hope you are all having a good start to the week.   I've been to the park with my dog today , it's nice to get out and get some fresh air.  It was like dogs world down there today , we were surrounded by dogs but its nice as I had company and someone to chat to.

Id also like to welcome my new follower.  Thank you so much for taking the time to follow me and also thank you all for your lovely comments.

Been crafting again today and made a diamond easel pop up card. I've made one before, you can find the tutorial here:

The image is a stamp I had in my crafting stash but I'm so sorry but I'm rubbish with names with my crafting stuff lol. I'm sure one of you will recognise it.  I coloured it with my trusty pro markers used glitter glue for the snow on the ground and for the falling snow I placed pearl gems on the snow drops. 
I layered up the diamond with different types of cards and punched around the edges. I used corner dies for the edges and a snowflake die behind the image.

Paper red roses were used for the bottom of the card after layering up and again punching around the edges like the top.   Christmas sentiment is printed from online and punched out with a die and then stained with ink.  Blue small rises were then placed at the bottom.

I hope you all like it and have a lovely evening .  Will be busy tomorrow so will pop round your blogs at the of the day. 

All the best

Hi Sharon,
Having to comment on my I pad as my I mac refuses to go on the Internet wirelessly.
DH trying to wrk on it as I speak. Lol.
So if I make any mistakes please excuse me, as the eyes are not too good at the mo. awaiting word on perhaps eye surgery.
Loving this card today. I have always wanted to do a diamond fold, but never got round to it somehow.
You wanted to know about the baby book card. This is 3 6x6 cards glued together and decorated how you like.
Will measure the box and let you have the measurements. Other than that I can send you a template of them for you to copy. Just let me know which you would prefer.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
