Yumi with Fan Double Diamond Fold Birthday Card

For a special friend's birthday, a double diamond fold card and a paper treasure box (filled with coffee candies).  Inspiration for the diamond fold card is from Collette Mitrega. She has a You Tube Instruction Video on how to make this Double Diamond Fold Card found here.  My card to finish 6" by 6" instead of 6"  x 7".
 This is the card standing up:
 On the left "diamond": a die cut cloud, fans, metal coins, paper flowers, and a metal fan. 
Center section stamp used is from Yumi and Fumi. She is popped with foam squares. Die cut Asian clouds, 1-1/2" circle punch for the Sun with a die cut Pagoda.
Copic colors used to color this Yumi with Fan image:

Here's a closer look at the die cut flying cranes. Note they are cut twice: pop one layer for this look.
 Right side: die cut cloud, die cut fans, metal coins, and paper cut flowers.

Finished box size: 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 2-1/2". Asian resin embellishment is from my stash.  Those "yellow" portions are actually brushed gold card stock.
