A New Card Fold & Adorable "My Besties"

Sherri Baldy's My Besties are just so adorable!!!
I thought they were perfect for the front of these cards I made using a "new to me" fold.  I saw this card fold during a hop, it was on Donna's blog, Lakefront Stamping Creations but she didn't give any directions so I just figured it out myself ... not sure if it's exactly how she did it, but it's close enough for me :)  
And I have the tutorial on my YouTube channel jjgz4ever and you can see it by clicking HERE 

The fun paper I used on the first card is from CTMH's Kaleidoscope Paper Packet .  The punch I used on the white cardstock is a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page set that is called Eyelet Lace.  I added colorful gems down the side because I love sparkly things, and a bow on the tab.   I used Inktense watercolor pencils to color both images.

I used Gina Marie Designs stitched rectangle frame dies to cut the white cardstock and the navy blue cardstock that is behind the image.  The glittery red & white striped cardstock is from DCWV "Nantucket" paper stack that I got a few years ago.  The Baseball Brads is from Hot Off The Press ( Paper Wishes )

Here are the links to these adorable images...
