A Dutch Door Fun Fold with a Silly Goose

S demos fun fold hop

Happy Tuesday! I have a Dutch Door Fun Fold for you today for the SU Demos Blog Hop. It’s a quick, easy fun fold and is a great way to show off your designer series paper (DSP).

The DSP that I wanted to show off is the Day at the Farm paper from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. This paper is not the typical paper that I put on my must have list, but when I saw it, I had a plan in mind. The print with the geese and the chicken wire immediately made me think of the Silly Goose stamp set in the annual catalog, so I knew it would be a perfect pairing.

The Sale-A-Bration promotion ends today, and since I hadn’t yet used the paper, it was time to get busy.

I began by cutting a 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ square out of my regular 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base to give me the barn door look. Next, I cut and adhered matching cardstock and the DSP.

After my layers were adhered, I stamped my goose image, colored it with my Stampin’ Blends, and attached it with Dimensionals.

The sentiment was laid on top of a coil of Pumpkin Pie twine and some Classic Matted Dots were added to jazz it up.

To complete my card, a 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Basic White cardstock was adhered to the inside of the barn door flap with the sentiment.

That’s it, super-easy! But wait, there is more…

After putting this card together, I decided to make a couple of gift card holders with another Sale-A-Bration paper, Dandy Designs. It’s a very large pack of paper, with a great assortment of colors, and can be found on page 14 of the SAB brochure.

These are just as easy as the card too! I first saw them from Mary Fish at Stampin’ Pretty. She made these gift card holders for one of our monthly blog hops and today I have used her design, with a couple of changes.

I didn’t use the ribbon to keep them closed, I used small velcro dots. They are the perfect size and have just the right amount of strength to open and keep the card shut.
