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.This cut off piece now becomes the sentiment panel for the inside of your card. Adhere it to the inside back of the card (this is the piece stamped with "sending flurries of love" below).
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!
