Stampin' Up - Fancy Fold Cards Blog Hop with the Art with Heart team

Hello Lovely Friends,
Welcome to another Art with Heart Team blog hop where we are focusing on fancy folds. You will find loads of creative inspiration tonight, showcasing different folding techniques and projects. Don't be afraid of trying some Fancy Fold cards; they may look intimidating, but in fact, they are not that difficult to create.

I wanted to try and pick a fancy fold that maybe the other Art with Heart Team may not pick so I did a little bit of searching to see if I could find something that I hadn’t seen for a while around the blogging world. I found a nice simple card that anyone can try and you can make lots of these if you need to for a special project like Christmas cards or as teacher gifts. I think it is always nice to give teachers practical gifts that they can use and a set of cards that they can use throughout the year is fabulous.

Well here it is The Double Front Fancy Fold Card. It is very simple to make and I have used the gorgeous Tranquil Tulip stamp set paired with Special Celebrations to make this stunning card. My Grandma loved the dark black tulips and this reminds me of her. 

I know you can't tell by this photos, you are saying she has gone mad it just looks like an ordinary card so here are all the different photos of the card so you can see the different fold.

This is a great card design to be able to write a lovely message to your friends as it gives you plenty of space to write.

 I have made a video giving step by step instructions on how to make this card

The Measurements/dimensions of the cards are as follows
Base Elegant Eggplant 15x14.8 cm
score at 10.5 cm
Inner Whisper White Card 19x13.5 cm
score at 9.5 cm
Cut 2 x Whisper white 7x11 cm
Cut 2 x Old Olive 7.5x11.5 cm
 The trick is to make sure you line up the Tulip card with the sentiment card before you adhere it to the front of the Elegant eggplant card.
