The summer seems to be flying by and I’m wondering why the winters never seem to do that…

I wanted to make my fun fold card for the week and decided to make a dutch fold card that is a one layer card.  I’d seen a video on it, and it looked like it wasn’t very difficult, so I thought I’d give it a try.  I had some great Distress Oxide inked papers from my friend Kay, and thought one of them would be perfect to decorate this card with.  The only problem was, I couldn’t follow the woman who gave the tutorial.  She did some scoring that just didn’t make sense, and even though I watched it several times, it never got any clearer.  It looked like all I needed to do was cut some paper off then bend the card in half, so that’s what I did.  It was one of those MacGyver moments and I was kind of proud of myself, because otherwise, this card was going into the garbage.

My system wasn’t pretty, but it worked and that’s all that mattered.  Sometimes you just have to wing it when it comes to card making.  I liked the end result and am glad I gave this card a try.
