Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 5 Double Dutch card

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

Today I made a double Dutch card with the contents of door #5. The name comes from the split double Dutch doors you will see in farm houses. The bottom opens like a gatefold and the top is a tent card. The top rests of the open bottom gates.

I will say this one was a challenge. When I started the card I hadn’t really figured out how I was going to make the top and so you get to see my thought process a little more in this video.

I have been trying to give the directions without spoiling what is behind the door just in case some is reading this before they open their door. Today I couldn’t find a Way so the item in door 5 is named in the directions.

Please refer to the video on the construction of the top topper. It is straightforward but a little different.

I hope you enjoy this video and card and I'll be back tomorrow with the next door.
