Origami card

I have had this book with Origami cards since the 80's. I think the last time I made a card from it was 1994 as I used to write the dates and names of people getting a particular one, so they wouldn't get doubles. Nowadays you can buy 3d dies, but I don't have any and this one's not too difficult, just takes a but of time and patience.

I made it for the Male Room Challenge: anything goes with the option of origami.
For my card I traced the lines from the pattern onto white card. then cut along the lines and fold them inwards or outwards.

I like this design particularly as it looks like two staircases in different directions, like an Escher painting.

I adhered a piece of dark purple card on the back and stamped the Happy Birthday from Simon Says Stamp It's your birthday set with Versafine Clair ink.
It fold almost flat, so it will go in an envelope.
