More than one fold with Polkadoodles

Good morning to you my lovely blogging friends, we have a fab challenge of more than one fold, going on over at Polkadoodles and I'm here with my make as a bit of inspiration for you.

Recently I went over to Summer Crafting and did the workshop, one of the makes was something I haven't done for years and I thought it would be good to either remind you of this style of card or even give you an idea if you haven't seen it before.
For this card I printed a couple of backing papers from the Octavia Collection but if you were being really frugal you could just use one card and print both sides, the card is folded into four, and one side of the short fold cut into the middle.  I was going to take pictures as I did this just in case you wanted to see it step by step but I can always do that again if anyone wants me to.
The picture above is the card complete with tags but I have taken a couple more so you can have a proper look.
This picture shows the card without the tags in and as you can see where the card is folded it makes little pockets. I've added some lace and a couple of extra embellishments so it looks quite pretty.

This is a picture of the two tags I've put into the card, the digi is Octavia Moonfly Wistful and is also available on it's own if you can't quite stretch to the full collection.  I used my Graph'it Markers to colour her then I went around the edge of both the tags with a pale blue then added some glitter.

I am entering this into the following challenges;
