Dutch Door Fold Card Tutorial
Kate here, with a SUPER SIMPLE fun fold tutorial to set your cards apart from the rest! Today I'll be sharing with you a dutch door fold card tutorial.
- Marshmallow Bazzill Card Shoppe
- Snowflake paper from Echo Park Hello Winter Kit
- Stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions
Start with a side folding A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). This is the standard size you get when you cut a piece of 8 1/2" x11" cardstock in half.
Choose a piece of patterned paper and pre cut the layering sizes you'll need: 4" x 5 1/4" inches for behind sentiment panel (inside back flap of card), 4" x 2 1/2" inches for front flap (front side bottom flap), and 2" x 3" for layering behind the stamped snowman.
Next, you are going to cut off the upper half of the card front (just like a dutch door). Measure down 2 3/4" from the top and cut down along the fold and straight across.
Use a separate rectangle of cardstock (2 1/4" x 3 1/4") to build your focal image on the front of the card. Layer the patterned paper on top of this and then your stamped design.
I placed another solid rectangle on the back of this focal rectangle (on the inside of the card) to give it a more finished look, but you can layer this however you'd like!
I hope this dutch door fold card tutorial was helpful and that you are already dreaming up your own creations!
