Thinking Of You - Double Dutch Fold Card with Video Link

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  It has been a crazy mixed blend of weather here in Southern CA.  Cold one day, hot the next, raining the next; so nothing stays the same for long here.  If you stick around long enough; you will have the weather you want.  LOL!

I have been trying to create unusual folds/cards that I find on the Internet and on YouTube.  I thought it might be fun to try something different.  I made a video for this one as well.  It is a Double Dutch Fold Card; which I have never seen before. I watched a video created by Sam at https://mixedupcraft.com/2018/10/24/double-dutch-fold-card/.

It was a lot of fun to create.  I made a Thinking of You card first; which is this one and then my next one is a Wedding card using the same card type.  I will probably make a few more with this same concept.  It's easy once you get the measurements down correctly.  

I created a video to show you how to create this Double Dutch Fold Card; which you can find at:  https://youtu.be/UDG5rD7AqUM

Here is my link for Cricut Design Space if you would like to have it for cutting the pieces.  I didn't add the score lines; but you could add them if it would help you.  I found it easier to cut and score the base card myself.  https://design.cricut.com/#/design/140678951


Also, see my next post for the wedding card that I created like this one.
