Dutch Shutter Fold Card - with Flowering Fields & No Bones About it.

I had seen this style of card on Splitcoaststampers, thought it looked great and wanted to try it out. The card I seen was so cute - it had Snoopy and the red baron on it... but there were no instructions, only that the creator of the card had seen it in a Dutch Hobby Magazine. I tried really hard to find it again to set up a link... but I couldn't find it... Sorry : (
I'll be sure to up date with a link if I do come across it though.

Update: I found the card that inspired these cards (only took ages :D ). 
Here is the link to niki1's cute version on splitcoast.

So, I've given it a go anyway and decided it wasn't to hard to figure out.
Stamp Set: Flowering Fields
Cardstock: Ivory Naturals
Ink: Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Wisteria Wonder & Blushing Bride
Technique: No black outline  
Extras: Blender Pen & White Gel Pen

This is how the card looks when folded flat to fit in the envelope.

Stamp Set: No Bones About It
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White & Vallum
Ink: Garden Green, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso & White Craft
Technques: Distressing 
Extras: Linen Thread

This is the back of the card, I just decided to decorate it too because the stamp set has so many images to play with I thought why not use up all the room.

This how the card looks when fully opened, showing both front and back.

As you can see the card folds nicely flat to fit into an envelope. 

This is a fun card to make and could be decorated in so many ways...
Sorry about the quality, I didn't scan the instructions like I normally would, I've just taken a photo instead.
