Good Morning! Today I have a Dutch Door card made with the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes stamp set. This is where the front flap is only on the bottom and you can see through the top, so I extended my art panel over the top to give the front some interest. It’s a pretty easy fun-fold! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Instead of scoring my Highland Heather card base at 4-1/4″, I cut the top 2-3/4″ of my score line, scored the bottom and cut across the card front to cut off the top half. See the picture below:
I adhered a Hand Penned designer series paper panel to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes cling stamp set in Highland Heather on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You cling stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Highland Heather and embossed the panel with the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to the Highland Heather mat cut from the top front of the card base.
I cut a Mint Macaron panel with the leaf from the Bough Punch and the remaining Highland Heather strip with the punch flower. I adhered the punched shapes to the back of the butterfly panel with glue dots and used Tear & Tape to adhere the butterfly panel and punched shapes to the card front.
I colored a length of white crinkle ribbon with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend and made a bow. I adhered the bow to the card front and finished with three opal round gems.
I embossed a panel of Highland Heather with the Meadow Moments embossing folder and adhered it to the top of a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
A dutch door card is an easy way to kick up a card design to add an unexpected fun element that’s sure to bring a smile. And a small, pretty stamped image such as this sweet butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes stamp set is perfectly framed without too much fuss.
