How to make a Dutch Fold Card Tutorial

                How to Make a Dutch Fold Card Tutorial

Supplies Needed:
paper trimmer, score board
ATG adhesive runner
die cut- Spellbinders Beaded Oval
card stock- Georgia Pacific- white 
designer paper prints- DCWV, The Paper Studio, Colorbok
digis- Robyn's Fetish digital store- "SS Hoppity,and "By the Sea"
Copics or other medium
paper Candi by Craftworks
ribbon- American Crafts, rick rack- Really Reasonable Ribbon
Blue Metallic Gelly Roll Pen
blue ink pad- Studio g
round foam dots.
sentiments- Create with TLC and my own verses.

Gather together your supplies and set up your work station.

Cut your white card stock as follows. 
One piece at 10" x 4 15/16th" and one piece at 2" x 10 3/16th".

Note: These odd sizes will give you a 5" x 6" card. It also makes it easier for scoring the 2" strip. 

Score your 10" x 4 15/16" card stock at 4".

Fold and crease with your bone folder.

Score your 2" x 10 3/16" piece of card stock at 2 1/2" on both ends of your card stock strip.

Fold and crease with your bone folder. Then open it back up. It should look like this. 

Add strong adhesive to the center section on all four edges. I also went down the middle, long ways, as this piece will support the card. 

Line up the bottom of the card base to the edge of each corner of the center section as shown. Making sure it is lined up with the bottom edge.

This is how your card should look so for.

This is how the card base looks standing up.

Choose and color your digis. Cut out the colored images. I am using "SS Hoppity" and "By the Sea" by Robyn's Fetish. You can find them in the Robyn's Fetish store here

Copics used are 
Blues- BG000, BG01, BG05, BG07, BG10, BG11, BB13, BG15, BG18, B21, B23, B28, B93, B95, B97, B000, B01, B05,  Reds- R20, R22, R29, R35, R59, Limes- YG00, YG01, YG03, YG07, Green- YG93, G94, G99, Yellows- YR21, YR24, YR31, Y000, Y13, Y15, Y17, grays/blacks- C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C10 pinks- RV00, R20, Browns- E31, E33, E37, W1, W3, W5, W7, peach- R20, E0000, E000, E00, E01.

Adhere your image to your die cut of choice. I used the largest Beaded Oval in the Spellbinders Beaded Oval set.  Set aside white you put together the rest of the card.

This is what is needed to put together your card. You will need the ATG also. I used the ink pad to ink the edges of the designer papers and and and die cuts.

Here are the front of my cards folded flat.

Here is how the cards look inside opened up all the way.

This is an enlargement of the verses I wrote for the "SS Hoppity" cards.

Here are the finished cards standing up.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you will give this card a try. I can picture this card fold used for many themes. Have a wonderful Summer!

Until next time Happy Crafting.
