Everything Eleanor Double Dutch Door Card

WOOHOO!!!  The new catalog is here!!!  You can click on my left sidebar to be taken to the online catalog if you haven't seen it yet.  LOVE it!  I'm so excited for all the new stuff and have been WORKING on my first order already!  Want to get it in today!  lol!  You'll need to wait until after 12:00 N Mountain Time if placing on online order!

 

I originally saw this type of card fold done called Double Dutch Door at Leadership and was reminded of it when I saw a fellow demo post about it (thanks, Cindee!).  When working on my cards for Stamp Club, I thought they would really like it, too!  Combining a new catalog stamp set, Everything Eleanor with new designer paper, Comfort Cafe…I love how this turned out!  Sort of a contemporary vintage look, I think! 

 

NOTE:  I still have openings for my next round of Stamp Clubs!  Long distance members are welcome…minimum $25 purchase per month for six months and you are hostess one of those months, plus add $5 for postage!  We usually do 2 cards plus 1 small 3D item (and the occasional surprise bonus!)  Kits will be mailed to you (sorry, no stamping per SU guildelines) with full color photos and directions.  Email me at iluvstamping@gmail.com for more details!

 

 

The base is Soft Suede and I added the chevron pattern from Comfort Cafe (LOVE it!) for the door panels at the bottom.  I used a coordinating pattern for the top floral flap.  It is layered on Cajun Craze before putting it on the top flap.

 

  • Base card piece – 4 -3/16” x 9”, score with long edge at top at 5 ½”
  • Flap piece – 2 x 8 ½”, score with long edge at top at 2 1/8” and 6 3/8” to make doors, adhere to back of long piece along the bottom.
  • Top layer – 3 ¼ x 4”
  • DSP or stamped layer – 3 1/8 x 3 7/8”

 

I stamped the medallion in Summer Starfruit on Very Vanilla and cut it out (hmmm, why didn't we have a framelit that fits this one???)  The flower was stamped with Cajun Craze on Cajun Craze cardstock and cut it out, then curled the edges slightly.  The medallion is adhered only on the top panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a greeting from Petite Phrases, punched with the Large Oval and layered on the Scallop Oval punch.

 

 

Inside the Soft Suede base, I layered on Summer Starfruit cardstock, stamped with the swirl from Everything Eleanor, then added a Cajun Craze flower.  I stamped the inside greeting from Petite Pairs in Soft Suede.

 

Did I mention that I love how this turned out?  We were laughing last night about the color of Summer Starfruit, but I must admit that it does look great with Soft Suede and Cajun Craze.  Also love it with Pool Party and Midnight Muse!

 

Enjoy!
