Dutch Door Birthday Card

Today’s card features a fun fold.  It’s a Dutch door birthday card featuring the Happiness Abounds Bundle and the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.  The Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!  Best of all, focal flowers on the front panel are easily cut using the coordinating Blossoming Happiness dies.  Participants in the recent Stamp-a-Stack had fun making three of these cards.  

Dutch Door Happy Birthday Card

How do you create a Dutch door card? Start with your card base (4-1/4″ x 11″) and score at 5-1/2″. Next, cut the front panel in half at 2-1/8″ and then trim along the fold seam from the top to intersect and remove the top piece.  In the photo below, you can see the decorated panel and card interior.
