Dutch Door Windmill Scene - Stampin' Up! Tulips Fields

   My stampers made this fun card at my last class and I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did designing it.  I wanted to show off the adorable windmill dies in the Windmill Fields die set and also use some of the Flowering Fields DSP.  The DSP can be a bit busy if using too large of a piece and I didn't want the windmill to get lost among all the bright flowers so I decided to make the card front a bit of a scene with a split front, kind of like a dutch door, to show off the different elements to their best.

  With a piece of Basic White thick I cut off the top half of the front fold so you can see the Pool Party insert on the inside of the card giving the scene a nice sky with some stamped clouds as well as some die cut clouds.  This allows for the top of the windmill to show up better and not be lost amongst the tulip pattern at the bottom.

  Once the windmill was die cut and and the pieced adhered we used a brad to allow the arms to spin and then popped the bottom of the windmill up on the flap with dimensionals.  Make sure you are careful with your dimensional placement so none of them will adhere to the insert or you won't be able to open your card!

  The inside and outside sentiments are from Happy & Heartfelt and a few Brushed Brass Butterflies embellish the card front.  Change out the sentiments to whatever you need and it's a great all occasion card!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
