Card Samples, Thursdays with Sandiebella

Thursday with Sandiebella: Create an Oddball Double Dutch Card

Sandie’s back again, with an awesome step by step showing how she created…

Oddball Double Dutch Card


Brown card
White card
Autumn/Fall themed papers
Scoring board and bone folder
Scalloped Rectangle Die
Enamel dots
How to:
Cut –
One 4 3/16″ x 9″ piece of card for card base
One 2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card for dutch fold bottom
Score the 4 3/16″ x 9″ at 5.5″ and set aside.

Score the 2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock at 2 1/8″ and at 6 3/8″

Fold in the outer sections and crease with a bone folder. They should meet in the middle.

Apply adhesive to the centre section of the 2″ x 8.5″ piece

Retrieve the card base you set aside and adhere the 2″ x 8.5″ piece to the outside bottom of the 5.5″ section

When you fold the card all the pieces should all line up.

For the layering panels, cut: 

White card:
Four 1 7/8″ x 2″ pieces (top section)
Two 4″ x 3 3/8″ pieces (side tabs)
One 4″ x 5 3/8″ piece (inside back)
Four 1.75″ x 1 7/8″ pieces (top section)
Two 3 7/8″ x 3.25″ pieces (side tabs)
One 1.75″ x 3.25″ (inside back)

Adhere all the paper pieces to the white card pieces and then stick them down on the card base.



Stamp Apple Cider Oddball onto some white card and coloured with your desired medium.

Cut the image down to 3 1/8″ wide x 4.25″ high. For the layers, cut some white card at 3.25″ x 4 3/8″ and some brown card at 3.5″ x 4 5/8″. Round the bottom corners of all 3 layers and adhere them together.

Apply adhesive ONLY to where the image is going to sit on the front panel and adhere it down.

Ensure there is no glue on the overhang.

Stamp the sentiment onto some white card and either use a die, or a paper trimmers to cut it out.

Adhere the sentiment to the inside back of the card base.

To embellish, hand cut a strip of paper and fishtail the ends. Adhere it on the top left of the image panel and then add some enamel dots.

To finish, I applied some glossy accents to the berries in her hair.

    When I saw Double Dutch I wondered what that had to do with the game I couldn’t do as a kid or grownup. I could jump rope great & I still can but I can’t double dutch to save my life! LOL This I saw had nothing to do with that. This is a really cool, colorful card! I have to make my fall cards because I am seeing this. Love it!
