Barn Door

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a card we made at our monthly club meeting using the stamp set called Barn Door.  You can see it here.  This stamp set has matching dies called Sliding Door Framelits.  The card we made earlier did not use the dies to make a sliding door, but this one does.

These dies are so easy to use.  They look a lot more complicated then they are.  The openings where the doors slides are made from one die so there is no guesswork on where it goes.  Here is what the card looks like with the door on the other side.

As you can see it is a cute interactive card.  Here is a video showing you how to make it.

The only thing I did differently is to put two Mini Dimensionals together to use instead of a washer or coin.  That makes the card a bit lighter in weight.

The colors I used for this card are Read Red, Early Espresso, Shaded Spruce, Crushed Curry and Gray Granite.  I stamped the door on a piece of Designer Series Paper  Series Paper called Festive Farmhouse.  I also ran a piece of Real red Cardstock through the Big Shot using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.

Barn Door

This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp club meeting last week.  It uses the stamp set called Barn Door that is in the 2018/2019 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.  This stamp set has matching dies called Sliding Door Framelits.  Normally this set is used as a slider card where the barn door slides back and forth.  I actually made another card as a slider using these products and will show it to you soon but we did not make a slider with this card.  Instead we made the barn doors open and this is what the inside looks like.

To make this card I first stamped two doors onto a piece of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper using Gray Granite ink.  This particular paper has the wood look to it so I thought was perfect to make barn doors out of.  Then I cut them out using one of the dies in the set.  I attached the doors to a piece of Gray Granite cardstock that is 9″ x 3 3.8″ that I scored at 2.25″ and 6.75. I put a 21″ piece of the Cherry Cobbler twine behind this and then  adhered that to a 3 5/8″ x 4.75″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Inside the doors is a piece of 3″ x 4″ of Whisper White cardstock.  The sign was stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink and the flowers are in Crushed Curry.  The door handles and the inside corner cuts were also made using dies that I cut out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  The inside corner cuts are actually a square that I cut diagonally.
