Dutch Barn Fold Card - Playing in the Rain - Stamp Around UK Video Hop - New Beginnings

 Hi Everyone,

This months Video Hop is all about New Beginnings, and we have the beginning of the new catalogue which launches in just a few days. I have chosen to showcase the Rain or Shine Suite of products which is bright and cheerful and full of cute creatures. I've combined it with one of my favourite Fun Fold Cards too, the Dutch Barn Fold, you can watch the video by clicking the link below:


1 piece of mango melody card stock 5" x 11", 2 pieces 3" x 3 1/2", scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of basic black card 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", 1 piece 4 3/4" x 3 3/4", 4 pieces 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
1 piece of basic white 4 1/2" x 6 1/2", scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 4 1/2" x 3 1/2", 4 pieces 2" x 3"
Playing in the Rain stamp set
Pansy Patch stamp set
Double Oval Punch
Loose Daisy Embellishments
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose Adhesive


On the long side score the card at 7" and then fold and burnish to make the card base. Score the two smaller pieces at 1/2" on the 3" side and fold and burnish to make the two gates.

Adhere the two gate pieces to the bottom of the card with the 1.2" section on the inside and make sure that they are level with the sides and the bottom of the card.

Adhere the basic black mat layers to all of the sections, the largest one will cover up the adhered sections of the two gates so that they fold over the top of it.

Adhere the dsp layers in place.

On the remaining white mat layer, stamp an image in the bottom right and some flowers, bottom left. Colour in with Stampin' Blends.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of white and punch out with the straight oval and layer up on a scalloped one punched out in mango melody.  Add a daisy and adhere to the left hand gate with a dimensional so that it is central on the bottom of the card.

I do hope that you like my card and will give it a try, it looks fabulous with any designer series papers.
