Halloween Funky Fold Gift Card and Tutorial

I had not seen this card before until we made one at my upline's card club the other day.
She had a Christmas card design for us to make but I thought I would try it as a halloween treat card.
Not sure what it is called or who originally thought of the design but I think it is fun and wanted to share how to make it.
When you open it up there is a pocket for a gift card or in this case I added a chocolate.
You start with a piece of card stock 11" x 4-1/4" (Very Vanilla used here).
Score lengthwise from one corner to the opposite corner as seen below.
Then fold in half. 

This needs to be folded in half again and a score line will help.
Score at 5-7/8".

Fold in half and burnish well with a bone folder.
Make sure it is folded so that there is a "pocket" on the outside front as seen below.

Make a pattern of the card shape to cut a piece of paper to cover the front.
I used the Howlstooth & Scaringbone designer series paper.  Love it!
You will be covering the "pocket" on the front of the card.
I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the designer series paper to card stock base.

For the inside pieces you will need to cut two pieces of designer paper.
 4" x 4 1/2" and  2" x 5 1/4"
You will need to cut these in half diagonally.
You must cut from the upper left to the lower right side or they will not work.
See photo below.
How do I know?  I did it wrong and found out there is a right way.
 This will give you two sets so you can use them in making another card.
Then adhere to the inside as shown in photo below.
 Now for the fun.
Decorate the inside and cover as desired!

If you know who originally designed this card or even what it is called please leave me a comment.
