Double Dutch

There are so many fancy fold cards on Pinterest and I have been trying to get brave enough to make some. So today I want to share a double dutch card. It was so easy to make and I really like the way it turned out. Wish I had spotted this card before I did my project for the Sisterhood's challenge "Fancy Folds", which I am hosting.


 half opened



Cardstock: White, SU Soft Plum, Black
Ink: Soft Plum
Embossing Folder: Darice 
Dies: Nestibilities Ovals, Scalloped Ovals, Labels Five, Memory Box Butterfly
Punch: Martha Stewart Eyelet Scallop Punch
Embellishments: White Wedding Flowers

When I embossed my top fold, I didn't realize that I had the embossing folder turned the wrong way, so it is debossed. But I thought it looked kinda nice that way and left it. The frame for the sentiment panel was sponged with SU soft plum ink. I also sponged the flower with the soft plum. I found the image and the sentiment on Pinterest.

It is hard to tell from the picture, but the butterfly was cut from white and soft plum cardstock, then glued together for dimension. The body and antenna were cut from black cardstock. Now that I know how easy this card is to make, I will definitely be creating more.

Don't forget to stop by the Sisterhood and check out the new challenge "Fancy Fold" cards. The Sistahs have some fantastic projects for inspiration. 

Thanks for visiting with me today.
