Whale Done - Fancy Fold - Book Fold for a Standard Size Card - Video Tutorial

Today's Video will show you how to create a Fancy Fold card. 

I used the Whale Done stamp set together with the Whale of a Time 6" Designer Series Paper pack.

You can see the Fancy Fold when you open the card. It's called a Book Fold card. 

The measurements I give you are for both A4 and 8½” x 11" users.

All the Turtles used to decorate the card were hand-cut from the papers.

The finished card is a little bulky due to all the layers. It will fit easily into a standard size envelope, but I would make a box to hold it. You can find a Video showing you how to make one in the correct size - HERE.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 is your standard size card – follow the metric measurements (cms).

If you use 8½” x 11” is your standard size card – follow the imperial measurements (inches).
