Have a Wonderful Christmas

Hello Everyone,
Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. The card I am sharing today is another card from my Card Shop card class held in August.

This card design is known as a Double Dutch card. And this design is super easy to make.

I thought the design would  make the cutest Christmas card. I know, I know we just entered September and I am already doing Christmas cards. Well the holiday season will be here before we know it.

Here is the card closed
Here is the card opened (2 views)

This is a fun card to make and to send.Closed this is an A-2 card size.

Here are the dimensions to cut:
Main card piece - 9" X 4 3/16"  score @ 5 1/2"
Gate fold piece 2" X 8 1/2"  Score @ 2 1/8" and 6 3/8"
Top panel 4" X 3 1/4"
Gate Fold Panels - 1 7/8" X 1 3/4"
Inside panel - 5 1/4" X 4"
The gate fold piece attaches on the back side of the card at the bottom and then wraps to the front and folds.
Add the panels and decorate.
