Double Display Card | Stamping Bella

Hi All!! I'm back today with a step by step on how to make this altered version of a Double Display Card featuring Edna Loves the Ocean. This card design is stunning on display and it folds up to a 4" x 6" for easy mailing. It can be adapted for any occasion. 

Nautical themed designer paper (used - Echo Park: Ahoy There)
Scoring board, bone folder, pencil, ruler, eraser
Stitched Circle and Stitched Rectangle Dies
Selection of die cuts for embellishing. 

How to:
Stamp Edna Loves the Ocean onto white card. Colour using your preferred medium, and fussy cut around the outline. Set aside to work on the card. 

For the card base, cut one piece of card measuring 6" x 12". On the long side, score at 2", 4", 8", and 10"

Again on the long side, score down from the top to the 1" mark at 1", 5", 7", and 11". Also score up 1"  from the bottom at 1", 5", 7", and 11".

Turn the card to the back and draw a line from the end (at the 1" mark) of the 1" score line to the 5" score line, and from the 7" to the 11" score line. Repeat on the opposite side. 

Using craft knife, cut across the pencil lines.  

Gently folding the score lines  - mountain, valley, mountain, valley fold 1" sections. Mountain, valley fold the larger sections. Repeat on the opposite side. 

Cut two pieces of card measuring 3" x 6".

Apply adhesive to the end section as shown, and adhere the 3" x 6" piece of card to it. Repeat on the opposite end.

Once all the layers are adhered, cut a selection of nautical themed die cuts for embellishment. Stamp the sentiment onto white card and cut out using a stitched rectangle die. 

Cut one 3.5" stitched circle from navy card and one 3.5" stitched circle from paper. Adhere them together, then decorate before adhering Edna using foam tape/dots. Adhere the circle panel to the centre section of the card. 

Decorate the front.
