Dutch Fold Card

I thought I'd try a new fold on a birthday card I need to make for a friend.  I've been meaning to try this fold for ages, but somehow have never got round to it.  I had to play around with the measurements I found online so I could make a finished 6 x 4 card.

I used three rubber stamps I bought I long time ago, 'Glasgow Butterfly', 'Glasgow Motif 2' and 'Glasgow Square'.  I have quite a few of the Glasgow Rose stamps, and they are some of my favourite stamps to use.  The images were stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and coloured with Promarkers.  All the dies I used were Spellbinders Nestabilities.  

 This photo shows the card closed.

I decided not to put a sentiment on the front of the card, but use the 'Glasgow Square' image inside the card so I can write the sentiment and greeting in the middle of the image.

I am joining in the following challenges:
