What's Cookin' Dutch Door Card

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today I am using the What's Cookin' Stamp and Die set and making this fun fold, Dutch Door.

I have started to make a few of these cards as thank you’s.  My partner’s daughters bought us a meal to have at home… it was a lovely surprise so we wanted to say thank you.  I bought the set, What’s Cookin’ so I could make cards that said thank to friends who have cooked for us or if I send a food parcel to friends.  It is versatile and could be used for anything home made.  

The below card I made for some friends who we sent a veggie box to to say thank you for all they do for us and the community.

Here is a look at the inside of the card.  I have stamped the same images on the front and inside the card.  In the video below I show you how to do this.  The bowl is easy but there is a technique to do the salt and pepper shakes.

These two below are the ones I made for my partner's daughter's to say thank you.  I changed the colour I stamped the sentiment and one one I did the chef's hats and the second one the veggies.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Brew Some Fun.  Which one do you like the best?

I love the little utensils, they are so cute.  I used the Silver Foil that is in the current Mini Catalogue (July - December 2021) and the handles are Night of Navy.  

I designed the card to have the table cloth at the front of the card and when you open the wooden strip looks like a bench or table top.  The All in Good Taste DSP is a great range of papers, from tiles, bricks, and wood grain, well worth have on hand.

Here are the list of papers and the measurements for the card.  

Basic White 198mm x 142mm and score in half at 99mm

I suggest cutting the card at 210mm x 142mm and scoring at 105mm and then trim the card down when folded in half to 99mm x 142mm

Night of Navy 148mm x 105mm

In Good Taste DSP 95mm x 99mm and 198mm x 5mm and 105mm x 95mm

Silver Foil - strip about 20mm wide

Night of Navy - scrap for the utensils

I have a link you can click on below to take you to all the products I used to make the card.

Here is my video showing you how I made the card.  I apologies in advance, it is a long video but there are a few techniques which I am sure you will enjoy and I hope will try for yourself.

Thank you for visiting my blog, and Happy Stamping.
