Gatefold cut out

I have tried something a little different today by making a gatefold cutout card.
There is an excellent tutorial for this over at Norma's Blog.
Sorry about the paper clip in the first picture but I wanted you to get the effect
with the card closed. Should have had another at the top as well
but you get the idea.

Now with the card open.
I think it probably needs to be a wider card but I found I had a
pile of 3 fold cards in my stash which were easy to adapt.
Hazel is asking for monochrome cards this week
so I am happy to oblige.
Tilda has come in for the usual amount of sparkle and glitz
but I am in great need of some refill ink for my  B copics
so her dress looks a little streaky I'm afraid.
Am entering this in :
