Moo! I love the adorable cow images from the Over the Moon set, so I just HAD to put them in a cute little red barn! I have a video and photo tutorial on how to make this adorable card using the Barn Door stamp set and the Sliding Door Dies.
When the barn door is slid to the right, the card looks like this.
Slide the door to the left and…hello cuteness!
The door is mounted on a regular card base that opens up to another cute cow inside.
This is the Facebook Live video showing how to make this fun card – photo tutorial is below. Here are the dimensions:
Real Red 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" for card base.
Real Red 4" x 5 1/4" to cut with the channel die and emboss with the Brick & Mortar 3D folder.
Real Red 3" x 4" to stamp and cut the door.
Whisper White 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" for the cow behind the door.
Whisper White 2 3/4" x 4" for the inside message.
Whisper White 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" for the "hello" sign.
Basic Black scraps to cut the hardware for the door (approximately 2" x 5")
The Sliding Door dies comes with this piece that cuts two parallel channels to make your door slide.
After cutting the channels I embossed the piece with the new Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder – this folder is awesome! Love all the texture it adds!
To get a deep impression I used the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate – this plate is thicker then a standard cutting plate and gives you the BEST impression with all the new 3D folders when using a Big Shot machine. If you don't have this plate, just add a shim to your standard plate (either one or two pieces of chipboard depending on your machine).
I love the textured highs and lows from this folder – so realistic!!
To make the door slide you can use small washers from the hardware store OR, do what I did. I just used 1/2" circles punched out of Real Red cardstock. Punch out 8 circles and place a mini dimensional on the back of all of them.
Place four of the circles in the channels as shown here.
Peel off the backing of each Mini Dimensional and stack a second circle on top.
Hopefully you can see how they "stack" in this blurry side view.
Peel off the backings, and attach the left side of the door (this stamp and die are also from the Barn Door / Sliding Door Die sets) to the circles on the left side of the card.
Peel off the backing from the other circles, slide your door to the right and attach the right side of the door to the other circles. Now the door slides! Place 4 full size Dimesnionals on the back in each corner and attach this to the folded card base.
Now decorate your card with the die cut images of the door handle, rod, and pullies (I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool to place and adhere these tiny items). Stamp the "hello" sign and cut it out with the matching die. Stamp a portion of the cow (the left leg goes off the side of the paper) and the heart thought bubble. Color the images as desired and add a small bow with a glue dot to the sign. Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure and visit my Facebook Business page to see all of my past videos.
