Double Dutch Fold

July 3, 2020

Sounds complicated doesn’t it, but it really is quite a simple card to create.  I followed the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers and I am more than happy with the result.  I used Basic Gray card to cut the two pieces to create the card base.  I think the only thing you need to be careful about is making sure that the pieces fit together properly before using your bone folder to fold the score line.  You need the top piece to sit so that it just meets the bottom flaps and that bottom flaps need to meet perfectly (or pretty near to perfect) together in the centre of the front of the card.  Sounds like its difficult but it really isn’t. I cut Whisper White card for the panels on the front of the card and embossed them using the Old World Paper3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the flower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crushed Curry ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Sunflowers Die.  I cut Crushed Curry card using the detailed sunflower die and the flower centre from Soft Suede card.  I attached the flower centre and the detailed flower on top of the stamped and die cut flower.  I stamped the leaf from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set onto Whisper White card three times using Old Olive ink.  I cut three detailed leaves from Old Olive card using the Sunflowers Die.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flower before attaching the flower to the card front.  You only attach the flower to the top flap using dimensionals.  So you need to be careful where you place the dimensionals on the back of the flower.

To decorate the inside panel I stamped a greeting from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set using Basic Gray ink.  I attached a narrow strip of Basic Gray card behind one long edge of Whisper White card embossed using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  The panel is attached to the bottom of the stamped Whisper White card.

So happy with the way this card turned out, it’s such a great way to show off large images like this one from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.  Don’t you agree?

Bye for now,
