Barn Door

Have you seen the Barn Door bundle yet?!?  It's so much fun!  It looks a little complicated but it's actually really simple.  The framelits are already all set up for you.  I have found so many fun ideas to use to create projects!  This idea came from Dawn Griffith.

Featured Product:
Barn Door Bundle

  • Thick White cardstock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4"
  • Soft Sky 4" x 5 1/4"- cut out the sliders for the barn door
  • Now run the same piece through the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.
  • Use the coordinating framelits to cut out the "hardware" for the door from Early Espresso cardstock.
  • Stamp the door in Early Espreso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut out
  • To make the door slide, punch out 8 1/2" circles from a Window Sheet.  Place 4 of them under the slide opening, attach a mini dimensional to it through the slide opening.  Attach another window sheet circle on top of it. 
  • Use dimensional strips to attach this piece to your card front. This allows space for the circles to move and slide when you move the door.
  • Put a mini dimensional on top of each circle slider-- attach the door to the left side top and bottom first, then slide it over to the left side and attach it.  Now you've got a sliding barn door!
  • Decorate the door as shown- or as you like.
  • I added a 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of Whisper White for under the door.
    • stamp it first 
    • attach underneath the door

On the other side of the door... I stamped words in Early Espresso and Sweet Sugarplum flowers also cut using the coordinating thinlits.
