Heartfelt Creations - Grateful Dutch Door Floral

 Hi and welcome!

I love creating fun fold cards and my dutch door fun fold works beautifully with the Floral Sentiments Collection. 

Instructions: Dutch Door fun fold card size is 5 x 7”. Cut Gorgeous Grape cardstock to 10 x 7”. Use a paper trimmer to trim a 5 x 3” piece off of the top right and save for another project. Score and fold the remaining cardstock at 5” on the long side to create the Dutch door fold card base, Cut Highland Heather cardstock 4 3/4 x 6 3/4” and white cardstock 4 1/2 x 6 1/2”. Stamp the ‘In Appreciation’ sentiment from the Grateful Floral Sentiment Cling Stamp set on the white card stock using Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks. Tip: Cover the word ‘Appreciation’ with a post-it note, ink the word ‘In’, remove the post-it and stamp on the top center about 3/4” down. Clean the stamp and this time cover the word ‘In’ with the post-it note, ink ‘Appreciation’, remove the post-it and stamp underneath ‘In’. This way you won’t have to cut the stamp to use the words individually. Stamp a butterfly from the Small Floral Butterfly Cling Stamp set at the bottom right using Highland Heather ink and adhere the white cardstock to the Highland Heather cardstock and adhere to the inside of the card. Cut Highland Heather cardstock 3 3/4 x 4 3/4” and Decorative Dragonfly paper sheet 10A, ink the edges of the designer paper with Highland Heather ink, adhere together and adhere to the card front using dries clear adhesive. Cut Gorgeous Grape cardstock 4 x 5 1/2”, Highland Heather cardstock 3 3/4 x 5 1/4” and white cardstock 3 1/2 x 5”. Dry emboss the white cardstock using a textured embossing folder and adhere the three layers together using dries clear adhesive. Center the stack on the card and add dries clear adhesive just to the bottom section then adhere to the card front.

Stamp the Grateful Floral Sentiment 3x on white cardstock, twice using Highland Heather ink and once using Soft Succulent ink. Diecut the Soft Succulent image using the largest die from the set. Diecut the Highland Heather image using the largest die and the inside die. Diecut the word ‘Grateful’ from the other heather image using the coordinating die, cut two more times from white cardstock, adhere all diecuts together with the stamped one on top and adhere to the green diecut. Color the heather frame using Stampin’ Blends markers and gently shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.

Sponge both images using dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere the heather image to the green image using dimensional squares and then adhere to the card front using the dimensional squares and dries clear adhesive. Add three Swarovski crystals to the top right using dries clear adhesive and the QuickStik Craft tool.
