The double flap fun fold card has a unique way to open

Hi fellow crafters! Have you heard of the Double Flap fun fold technique? I think it has been around for a while but I just learned how to create it so I thought you might like to learn, too. I will be using my Poinsettia Petals stamp set and matching Poinsettia dies, and my Tidings of Christmas designer series paper.
 
Poinsettia Petals bundle

 

The Poinsettia Petals set is perfect for sending warm wishes from your home this holiday season. The set includes images to create custom poinsettias and messages to personalize your cards.
 
Tidings of Christmas paper
 
The Tidings of Christmas designer series paper is perfect for any project that is Christmas themed. It is a pack of 6" x 6" sheets, sized just right for card fronts. One side has seasonal designs; the other has all-occasion basic designs. If you have any left over after the holidays, you can use the basic designs for any other projects you want, such as more cards or accents on scrapbook pages.
 
Here's my card closed:

And here it is open:

If you want to try this fun fold technique at home, here's what you need.
