Fun Fold card tutorial

Cased from France Martin, inspired by Pam Allen and Lynne Ernst, I wanted to try out this Fun Fold.

This will be a great for any of the DSP paper sets with coordinating cardstock packs.  I used the Cherry on Top DSP and the Cherry on Top cardstock.
First score the paper at 5-1/2" and 2-3/4", then cut it in half.  You'll get 2 cards for every 8-1/2" X 11"sheet. I used the Watermelon Wonder here.
Then, you score a 1" strip of the coordinating color, Bermuda Bay the same as the card, at 5-1/2" and 2-3/4".

Fold the card and the strip into "S's" as shown below:
Use one sheet of the Cherry on Top DSP.  Cut it first at 5" X 4", and with the remaining bottom strip, cut it into 2 pieces of 2-1/2" so the paper looks like this:
You will adhere the 5" x 4" to the back of the card, and adhere the 2 squares to the front of the card.
Use the strip to cover up the seam on the front of the card and test out the fold.
This is the finished card with the die cut on the front.
Here are some other versions with different cardstock and different DSP.
Here is one with the other die cut:
Thank you for checking in!
