Barn Door Birthday

Hello stampers,
     So at Kerri's class last month, I got to use the Barn Door bundle. While I liked the set in the catalog, it's just not my type of card to make- too many pieces to put together & too much time on 1 card. But this is just my opinion, lots of people seem to really like the set!
     For the card, we started with a layer of Crumb Cake Card Stock for the base. The next layer we used the same color, ran it through the Big Shot first to emboss it using the retired Stripes TIEF then ran it through again Sliding Door Framelits to die cut it. I don't remember what set we used for the sentiments, but they were stamped on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock & attached to the Crumb Cake Card Stock. Before we assembled, we stamped the door using the Barn Door Stamp Set with Soft Suede Ink, the wreath in Garden Green Ink & the bow in Real Red Ink before we cut out the sliding pieces using Basic Black Card Stock, the door using Soft Suede Card Stock, the wreath & bow using Whisper White Card Stock. We attached 8 #8 washers together using Mini Dimensionals so the door would be able to move side to side. Next, we used Glue Dots to attach the door to the washers by first attaching one side both up & down, then the other side when they were all the way to one edge that way they were covered on each side by the door. We then attached the hardware to the top of the door so that it looks like it is sliding on the bar. We finished attaching everything else to the layer before adhering the layer to the base of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals to help it slide better. You still have time to get this set if it's on your wish list, but Sale-A-Bration is ending this Saturday 3/31.
