Dutch Door Donut Card

Dutch Door Donut Card

Hello friends. Shannon here. I have made it a goal to try at least one new fold or card configuration each month. I have been a little intimidated to step away from standard A2 cards. I am excited to try some new things out and to share them with you.

I am starting off fairly simply with this simple dutch door card. If you are fairly new to new folds and configurations, I hope you will give this a try.

Start by cutting your card base (Rouge-Cardstock-100lbs-Cover) to 4 ½ x 8 ½ inches. Score at 4 ¼ inches. Fold along the scoreline.

Unfold and line up on your trimmer through the center lengthwise at 2 1/4 and cut down to the original scoreline/crease.

Then cut along the scoreline/crease up to remove the top portion of the card front.

Next trim the yellow dot paper from Slim Line Paper Pad - Rainbow Dot

to 2 ¼ x 4 inches.

Trim the plaid paper (Picnic Table - 12x12 Paper) to 2 x 4 inches.

Use the Square Foundation dies to cut the center mat and the turquoise dot panel (3 ½ inch square and 3 inch square).

Stamp the Donut Give Up stamp in Raven Detail ink on white cardstock, brown cardstock and pink cardstock.

Cut the brown donut out including the donut center following the outline of the donut (no border).

Cut the donut image out of the white cardstock leaving a little border around it.

Cut the pink frosting out including the center, following the outline of the icing.

Layer and adhere the panels to the card (check out the video) and layer and adhere the donut pieces. Adhere the layered donut to the turquoise dot panel using Easy Tab foam dots. Add enamel dots or sequins and sentiment.

I used a clear liquid glaze all over the frosting on the donut. I spread clay sprinkles onto the wet glaze (careful to avoid eyes and mouth).
