Lock Fold Birthday Card

I was looking for some fun fold cards to create and this one really caught my eye. It's a lock fold card although it goes by other names. A good friend showed me how to create this. 

The card itself is quite bulky as you will see when it is opened up. The most difficult part of this (for me) was cutting the inside frames on my trimmer as I didn't have a set of rectangular dies that were the correct sizes. In hindsight, it would have been much easier to take those pieces to my Cricut and cut them there. 

The paper is from the Celebrate Today paper pack and I used a variety of stamps. I brushed the flower lines and all the tiny hearts and stars with the Clear Shimmer Brush and added some Bitty Sparkles both on the front and inside the card. 

This is the front view of the card. 

This is the card open, looking straight on.

And finally, here are two partial side views to give you a better idea of how it works.
