Double Front Card.....

I love those special fold cards and think they are awesome, but I seldom get into that type of card because they just seem too fussy for me.  Every now and then I come across one that is not too difficult and I just  have to try it.  I found the instructions on Pinterest and just had to give it a try.  I wrote down all the dimensions as I watched the video and now I can make one anytime I want without trying to find the video again.  I needed a birthday card and I used this Double Front Card and I just love how it turned out.


 I used a Stampin Up set of retired stamps for the sentiments.  I love how elegant the lettering is and  had forgotten I had this set.  You know the old saying...Out of sight, Out of mind.....


This picture shows the second front part of the card.  I used the Anna Griffin embossing folder (Foundry) on this card and I love the look it gives.


Clean and simple inside of the card.  I always leave this part blank and I can write a message for the recipient.  It just gives the card the personal touch I think.

I really enjoyed making this card and will make more of these soon.  Hope you are ready for your weekend and that you get to do something you love.

I love the simple beauty of this, Glenda! Neat fold, I may have to try it, although I tend to stay away from fancy folds as well. Thanks for sharing!

That is a beautiful card, Glenda, love the clean lines and the embossing. I am with you on fold cards, lots of work went into this one, lots of layers! Hope your Friday has been a good one.

This is so elegant and beautiful, Glenda! The green with the gold and the lovely embossing is pure class. I like interesting folds and they're fun to execute, but my stamping time is so precious and limited these days I rarely take the time. There are some simple ones, though, that I need to revisit. This turned out very special!

Beautifully elegant card Glenda, love the embossing on it & that wonderful stamp set. I love the folds on this one & will definately have to give it a try ... It doesn't look too terribly difficult for me to try & figure out.
