Folded Panel Card

I've been exploring easy card structures I can make using standard card blanks.  Here's one where the card front is folded back forming two panels - one hidden on the inside - so that half of the inside shows through.

This is what it looks like when opened:

Card Base - Simply score a line dividing the card front in half vertically & fold as a mountain fold.  The pre-scored line will be folded as a valley fold.  

Panels - I cut paper from a HOTP Cardmakers Personal Shopper kit - so about 3/8" of the white base card shows all the way around.  Rather than using paper to mat all of these, I drew a dark purple line around them using a ruler & one of my Zig Scroll & Brush Markers.

Border - narrow piece of paper from the kit.  I drew a dark purple line on either side as for the panels, then matted with white & dark purple before adding it as you see here.  Because of the way the card is constructed, this border is seen whether the card is open or closed.

Focal - The focal is a panel from the kit.  I cut it with a narrow white border & then matted it on dark purple.

Butterfly Embellishment - from the kit - matted with white & then purple.
