Double Dutch Fold Card

My Cutters Creek Design Team Tuesday Tutorial post for you today is a card I saw on Splitcoast Stampers called a Double Dutch Fold Card. Of course I had to give it a try.

This card fits in a standard A2 envelope. I started with a piece of Bazzill White card stock cut at 4 3/16" X 9" and scored at 5 1/2". I also cut a piece of the white card stock 2" x 8 1/2" scored at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8". I used my ATG Gun to adhere the the larger piece to the smaller piece centering it between the folds of the smaller piece. When finished the top folds down and the two smaller sides fold in like a gate fold card. I then cut a dark turquoise mat from Core' denations card stock. For the larger flap I cut the blue mat at 4" X 3 3/4". The smaller flaps I cut the blue ( think I didn't write it down sorry) at 2" X 1 7/8". The polka dotted patterned paper is from  the Echo Park Paper Pad. The patterned paper was cut 1/4" smaller than the blue mat.  I cut my cupcake from the Sweet Tooth Cricut cartridge at 3 1.2". I cut the heart out of red paper from my stash and then used some Magenta Stickles on the heart to give it some sparkle. Finally I add some faux stitching and doodle dots to the chocolate layer.
I sure hope you will give the card a try. It was a lot of fun to make something a little out of the ordinary. I made this card for a co-worker who has a birthday next week. I am also entering this card in the Simply Crafts  challenge.
