Dahlia Dutch Fold Card.....

Although, I'm sure this fold has been around for quite awhile, it is the first time I have attempted to make a card using it.  I love all the fancy folds and will be trying some of them in the future.  Nothing too over the top, but quite a difference for me.

This morning I'm here to share with you a Dutch Fold card I made using Heartfelt Creations products.

 
 
And below is the inside of the card.  I let the beautiful papers do most of the work on this card. 
 


Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCPC 3549 Blooming Dahlia PreCut Set
HCDP1 235 Burst of Splendor Paper Collection
HCPC 3383 Cardinal Posy Branch PreCut Set
HCD 728 Timeless Amour Die

Other Supplies:  Memento ink, cream colored card stock, white detail embossing powder, Scor-Tape, glue,

Instructions:  I went online to Splitcoast Stampers and found instructions for the Dutch fold and used that to make my card base.  Next I measured and cut out pieces of the pretty papers to cover the card inside and out.  Next I stamped and embossed the image onto a piece of the paper and cut out so that parts of it would slip out over my Timeless Amour die.  Cut out the heart and glue the embossed piece behind it and attach to the front of the card.  Next I stamped my sentiment onto the inside panel and this lovely card is ready to go.  It will mail very easily and I love that about this type of card!

I haven't seen a Dutch fold card before. What an interesting alternative to a regular old top or side fold card. I love all the possibilities. This one is gorgeous from every angle!
