Double Dutch Fold with SS

Ready for another fun Sweet Stamps Challenge?!

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create. You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!! There's plenty of "sweet" things to choose from!

Double Dutch Fold

Last fall, I was introduced to this fold and really enjoyed making my card.  So I was very excited to see SS was having a challenge using this fold as I knew it would be fun to use SS stamps for this type of card!

Here's the card I created:
I used the new "Dahlia" stamp release this month!! 
I just love the new "From the Garden" set of stamps!!

Here's a peek as you begin to open the card, sorry I didn't completely finish the entire card.  I plan to use the card for my Aunt's Birthday that is coming up in a few weeks.

This is such a fun fold!!  Here's a link to a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  I've actually played around with it and got it to be one whole card rather then having to add the small piece behind it to warp around to create the two flaps.
