OWH Diamond Fold

The Stars & Stamps blog had a tutorial on making a Diamond Fold Card.  The challenge I found was to create a place on this card to write a message.  Here is my solution:
front view
back view

After folding the diamond fold from 4" X 12" paper, I cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" X 5 1/2", cut in half vertically.  I glued each 2 3/4"  X 5 1/2" cardstock to end pieces of diamond folded paper.

 Next, I cut a base card from white cardstock, 5 1/2" X 8 1/2", scored in middle.  I adhered the back side of the end flap from the diamond folded section to one side of base card.

Next I adhered the other end flap to the other half of front of base card, using ATG gun.

This created a regular card to write a message.  I decorated the front of  card with Class A'Peels corner stickers.  I attached a square of the heavy weight textured cardstock to front of diamond fold, the stamped the Thinking of You onto a square piece of the same paper I used for diamond fold. and glued it to center.

The diamond folded section does not open, but does stand out from the card.
