Double Dutch Fold Card

Hi everyone, today I have a card which has been a popular request!

These Double Dutch fold cards where lots of fun to make and very quick and easy.

Double Dutch Fold Cards

I think the reason I liked making this one so much is that it’s got a Gatefold style about it, which I love.

I still have some of my Nature’s Grace papers by Dovecraft which worked perfectly with this style card.

These are 5″ x 7″ cards so they stand nice and tall and have lots of room inside for your message.

Score along the 10″ side at 2.1/2 and 7.1/2

Score along the 11″ side at 7″ and then score at 3.1/2 just to the first score line, then flip your cardstock and score again at 3.1/2 just to the first score line.

1 piece of 4.3/4 x 6.3/4 cardstock for your large inside mat.

1 piece of 4.3/4 x 3.3/4 cardstock to mat the front flap of your card.

2 or 4 pieces of 2.1/4 x 3.1/4 cardstock to mat your front gate flaps.
