Double fold card: Sorry you caught a bug!

Good morning crafters!

To say that I was amazed by the special fold cards I've seen so far would be an understatement!! I was bowled over by the Magic Explosion card Karuna made and I had never even heard of a Diamond fold card so that was a complete surprise!!!! Thanks ladies for such wonderful inspirations. :)

Khushboo's Six fold card was something I had seen before. But even so, it was so colourful that I decided to make today's card in a similar manner - with lots of patterned papers!!! And I borrowed another idea from her card; I made something similar to what she did to hold my card in place.

It's a very simple fold and I am not sure what it is called so I'm calling it a Double fold card, simply because it has two flaps overlapping one another. It's a get well soon, kind of card and I decided to make that because I haven't been keeping well the past two days.. So there was the inspiration.

The final card measures 4"x4" and I've used some amazing PPs from the Lulupu store (full supply list at the end of the post!) Here's the card!

And here are the videos. Yes, you read that right. Since the video was turning out to be very long, I split it into two...
