Let's Go Fishing! Double-Fold Card

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! It's Janet from SugarShine Designs with a masculine card for you today. This card is called a double-fold card and is also known as a Joy card fold. By complete coincidence, Lois posted this same card fold on Monday except she turned it so that the card opened up vertically. My card opens up horizontally but is otherwise very similar. This is a nice fold because it starts out a normal A2 size but once opened expands to three panels and 10.25" wide.

I used many different die sets to create this project but if you don't have all of them, just substitute with different dies. This same idea can work on a number of different themes. Just start by thinking about what you want to use for the closure and then go from there.

In my case, I started with the tree from the Grass, Trees & Vines set and built the rest around the outdoors theme. I also used all the dies from the stamp and die set called Woodlands. The detail in these stamps and dies are awesome. You can color these any number of ways but I chose to use my PrismaColor pencils. I colored the dies from the Fishing Gear set with distressed ink.

Great video! I am going to have to give that fun card design a try! And of course your card is just perfect for any guy or gal who loves to fish!!

Love the video, Janet! And what a coincidence that we both did a Joy Fold Card this week. This makes a great guy card. My late husband was a fisherman, and I enjoy seeing cards with fishing elements on them. That was a great idea of putting the glossy accents on the water.
