Sliding Barn Door
I made this sweet card using the new Barn Door Bundle from Stampin’ Up! Barn doors are very trendy right now in homes and decor, so I love that we get to play with that trend on our cards.
Check out this cute little 15 second video I made, with sound effects ; ), showing how the door slides.
The barn door is surprising easy to make with the right dies! The die set includes the track and the hardware dies (customize your hardward colour!) and even the barn door cut out (which you could also use for other cards too).
All you will need to add is some washers to make this work (see my pic below).
Love all the parts in the set that allow you to make wreaths and signs for the door. Also the flowers can be die cut as a group of flowers or individually (see the video from Stampin’ Up!).
Today, I’m starting a new theme called “Movie Monday“, where I post a new video every Monday here on my blog. The video will either be made by me on my YouTube channel or it will be from Stampin’ Up! For today’s “Movie Monday“, I have two movies….the little one above from me and the “how to” one from Stampin’ Up! The one from Stampin’ Up! shows how easy it is to put the the Barn Door Bundle together on a card.
You might also notice that the animals on the card are from the We Must Celebrate stamp set and I did cut my stamps apart to make this work. It is not scary to do this and it is super easy to line them back up again if I want all the animals as a group again. Check out another card made with the We Must Celebrate stamp set here.
In the Stampin’ Up! Video, you can see the washers used for this card. You will need 8 washers per card. I did try several sizes, including a dime, and I found the #8 washer size worked best. Here’s a picture of the size of the washers I used for the Barn door tracks. I just got these at a local Canadian hardware store. And you can see that a dime is just too big as it would show behind the door.
I’m sure I’ll be making some more Barn Door cards as it is just so much fun! Be sure to check back to www.stampwithjenn.com for more ideas.
