Barn Door - slider fun!

Sliding Barn Door

This card is a notecard 8 ½ x 5 1/2 folded.  

Stamp the door in Early Expresso, cut out with the die

Stamp the greeting on the white piece 2 ¼ x 4

Now create the card front.  Run the soft sky (4 x 5 ¼)  through the wood plank embossing folder.  Which way do you like the grain to go? Now with the sliding die, position on the soft sky so there is EXTRA ROOM at the top (for the “rail”).  

Run through Big Shot. Adhere the greeting piece that will be covered by the door.

Put 4 foam strips on the back just over and under the sliding openings.

Stamp the greeting for the outside of the door, cut out with the dies.   Adhere to door.

Cut out the rail and the door hardware and attach the rail and hardware to the card front and door front.   

The door hardware doesn’t make the door slide, it’s an illusion.

Now get your door “wheels” ready.  Take 2 #6 washers (I bought 100 for $1.45 on Amazon, search #6 washer) and a mini dimensional and create a washer-dimensional-washer sandwich. 

Gently push 4 wheels into the 2 long slots.  Put a glue dot on each wheel.  Place the Barn Door on 2 wheels (first on the left side), then the right side.  The door will slide.  Stamp a greeting inside if you wish.

Here's a cute simple barn door card Glad to know you

This crumb cake card is a notecard 7 x 5 folded.  
Stamp the door in Early Expresso, cut out with the dies
Stamp the wreath twice, once in a green such as Emerald Envy or Lemon Lime Twist and once in a bright color such as berry burst.

Cut out the green wreath with the wreath die and the bow with the bow die. Glue the bow to the wreath.

Attach the door to the front with dimensionals.  Adhere on the wreath.  Tie about 24” of twine around the card and secure the bow at the top. Stamp the greeting inside. 

This set makes every card look stunning... very happy it's in the new catalog.

happy stamping, MaryKate
