Today I have a Double Flap Fun Fold card for you that again uses the On the Horizon Stamp Set and New Horizons Designer Series Paper.  The colors used are Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya.

This is an easy Fun Fold where the left flap folds in first and then the right flap folds over top of it.

There are only a few things to be careful of when you make this card.  First as you cut your designer series paper for the two flaps, you want to make sure you cut them so that the pattern flows from left to right on the finished card.

The second thing to be aware of is to make sure your ribbon will slide freely between the scalloped rectangle die cut and the Pale Papaya sentiment mat.

And the third thing is to be careful that you only adhere the sentiment assembly to the left flap.

The ribbon that passes "through" the sentiment will help hold the card closed.

The finished size of this fun fold is 5-1/2" x 4" (rather than 4-1/4").  As you cut your cardstock to decorate the inside, be sure to remember that it is not the typical standard size.  I figured this out the "hard" way.  Thankfully, it is always easier to cut something smaller than make it bigger and fortunately, I had not yet adhered my layers together when I figured out my panel was too large to fit inside the card.

After I cut my two designer series paper panels for the card front, I had a 2" strip of DSP left over.   I'm not one to let a pretty piece of DSP go to waste, so I cut it in into two 1" strips and used them to decorate the inside of my card as well as my envelope.  No naked insides or envelopes is my motto! I added a border of Soft Succulent on my 1" DSP "scraps" before I adhered them to the inside of the card and to the left side of my envelope front.  For the inside of the card, I only added a border on the inboard side.  For the envelope, I added the border on both sides of the DSP strip.
