Fancy fold

This is the first time that I have attempted a challenge but the one at Bah Humbug interested me so I had a go!
The base card is 11" square and folded diagonally. Score at 3" and 5 1/2" from both ends of the long straight edge and fold the two inner creases towards the middle and the two outer ones back. The two outer folds need to be opened and pressed flat to achieve a diamond shape. The top folds down to shape the envelope and is scored at 3 1/2". I decorated the front with House Design paper that was free with a magazine and the topper (also free) was matted and layered onto red mirri.I used frosted lace stickles for the wings and gems for the corners. The tag was from the same set matted on red mirri and decorated with brads. I hope the fold is more obvious from the photos
thanks for looking
