Double Dutch Fold.

Making the most of my Internet 
being up for first time in days to
quickly post this card.
The  Craft Club that I do swaps in
required us to include 10 embellishments in with
our January cards for our partners in turn to create 
2 cards for the February swap using those embellishments.
This is the second selection that 
I received from my Partner Merry.
The blue card is from my stash and was used to make the base card. 
The pretty rose patterned card is the notelet that Merry enclosed along with the 
embellishments  and I thought it much too pretty not to reuse. 
As the pattern was the same on the back of the card I cut it down the middle
to use on each of the cards that I made .

I decided to make another new card shape.
This one is called a Double Dutch Fold.

I cut the printed acetate panel in half  and just 
had enough to cut one piece in half again.

The flower petals , paper button and twine 
decorated the front and I 

the rose patterned card for  the inside.

I even made use of the little flower charm.
This card went to Mandy as part of the swap.

Wonderful Mrs A! Love how well you used the goodies and I do love the Double Dutch fold. I made one ages ago - must have another go as they do look rather good :)

Oh my, how lovely, I love this, what a great fold, a really lovely card Valery Anne!
Still struggling with the internet then, it's a nuisance,
mine went off last night, plus the phone too, luckily it was back in about an hour so no where near as bad as your problem, hope it soon gets sorted out permanently.

You've left me awestruck with this intricate fold! Gosh, you have developed such an arsenal of so many interesting folds...I am loving that impressive gray-tone flourish look too, and of course, I always sigh over the pretty rose patterns you have. Beautiful work, Miss V, as always. Good luck with the internet. Hugs & TFS
