Today’s video shows how to make a Dutch Fold Card but sideways! My original idea was to make a Dutch Side Fold card but by the time I had finished playing with the measurements, my card doesn’t look much like a Dutch Fold Card………………….whichever direction you look at it but I still decided to call it a Dutch Side Fold! LOL!
Never mind, it’s still a great fancy fold card and it’s easy to make! As usual, in the box below the video, I have supplied measurements for A4 cardstock users in inches and in metric, and also in inches for North American sized cardstock. A couple of years ago I made a video showing how to make a Dutch Fold Card.
There are two ways this card can be made. In the original video I used two separate pieces of cardstock and in today’s video I used one piece. Each way has its advantages and it really is down to matter of taste. I have to admit that working out the measurements and instructions for today’s video did give my brain a much appreciated workout!
In today’s video I also showed how to use the large Messages die to die-cut just one sentiment. I’m sure all crafters love to use their stash in as many ways as possible! I know it’s possible to use dies for embossing but I’m not sure how it’s done. Funnily enough, while making today’s video I made a mistake which showed me how to emboss with dies but I’m not sure this is the correct way!
I was die-cutting some leaves but on the skeleton leaves die, I put it upside down. My first reaction was that it wouldn’t do the cutting edge of my die any good! I’ll have to investigate how to use dies for embossing because I always thought it was done using special embossing mats! I’ve kept my mistake and will try fussy cutting the leaves to see if it is usable! LOL!
That’s it from me today. I wish you all a very blessed Sunday and I look forward to being back with yo on Tuesday. In the meantime, please take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.
