Good Morning Magnolia - Double Dutch Fold Card - Video Tutorial

Good Morning! :o)

I am excited for you to see today's Video Tutorial! It shows you how to create the above Double Dutch Fold cards. 

I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coordinating Magnolia Memory and Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I love these cards! This is my first go at 'Double Dutch Fold' cards ..... note that these also have quite a view other alias' too!

I have seen this style of card around for years but it never really appealed until I actually gave it a go! It's really lovely ... and so versatile. You don't have to add such a large centre panel if you don't want to. In fact you don't have to add any additional panels. The choice is entirely up to you :o)

The cards fold flat, so can go into a standard size envelope - unless you make them too dimensional (see my next one!). 

In the Video I give you sizing for both A4 and 8½" x 11" users. 

Now .... this one is my favourite! Just look at that magnificent Magnolia. This one is made up of four layers and I love it!

Don't let the size of this flower put you off the stamp set. It's so quick and easy to colour ... and I'm no expert! It just looks great no matter what :o)

This style of card can stand up in two different ways. The first above shows you with the centre panel in front of the 'doors' - I prefer this way :o)

The second photo shows you with the centre panel behind the 'doors'. If designing a card with this way in mind make sure your decorations dont' extend off the sides of the centre panel ... they may get in the way of the 'doors'.

This is the card I create in the Video. I give you lots of hints and tips too regarding the colouring of the Rhinestones, changing the shape of the die cuts used for the centre panel and precise stamping with the Stamparatus. It's definitely worth a watch :o)


The above is a side view of the card. 

And ... here is what it looks like inside - so pretty!

Here is the Video ... I hope you enjoy it and decide to leave me a comment :o)

I like all three, but I love the last one you constructed on your video. I particularly appreciate the speed at which you walked us through the construction
Very easy to follow mentally.
Thank you !
