Different Fold Card

Over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday our challenge theme this week is "Anything Goes" without a twist. Our sponsor for April is Besties Designs.

I very seldom make cards with more than one fold, but this one have lots! I found the tutorial for it in a Norwegian craft magazine called "Ett Trykk", but they haven't named this card fold. If anyone knows the name of this fold or have a suggestion of what to call it, please feel free to share:) It envolves folding corners for inserting a removabe panel or tag. I chose to insert my square panel in the bottom corners. As you can see from the smaller photo the card opens like a gatefold. The card base requires a 12x12 sheet, and before I started folding I used a Martha Stewart punch to get decorative edges.
I colored my Bestie image with Promarkers and a white gel pen.I added seambinding ribbon, flowers and pearls and 2 handcut banners with birthday sentiments.

I think this is very different from my usual style, mostly keeping to plainer square and A2 cards with less embellishments. But it's fun to try something different.

I'd like to entermy card in these challenges as well:
1) Creative Card Crew - #86 Fancy Folds
2) Shopping Our Stash - #199 Opposite Day (card with lots of folds and embellishments, stash: flowers)
3) Craft Your Passion - Always Anything Goes
4) Inspiration Destination - #31 Always Anything Goes
5) Love to Scrap - Anything Goes

Wow!!! Just fabulous, Pia!!! Love so so much your very different style, So feminine and youthful!!!
Great design with this folding technique, I must try to make one, it's a stunning and wonderful idea!!! The cardstock under the removable panel can be used for write a hidden message...
And your bestie are just lovely!! Great colouring! I usually don't like so much besties images, but this is really adorable and fun!! The bordered edges, the pearls, the roses and the lace give a romantic touch to your card, I love all the details! Great work!!
