Welcoming Door

Finally some time to post! Here is a card that was inspired by a house here in town. Who thought one could be inspired in a traffic jam. The doorway was so pretty. I made this card just before Thanksgiving for a magazine call but it wasn’t what they were looking for I guess. Cardstock: (Fine Linfall door (511x640)en, Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink; (Very Vanilla) Stampin’UP!

Clear stamps: (First Fruits) Papertrey Ink

Dye Ink: (Chamomile) Papertrey Ink; Pigment Ink: (Ochre) Color Box

Tools: (Impression Plate- Woodgrain) Papertrey Ink; (Square punches) Paper Shapers;

Fiber: ( White tulle) Jo- Ann Fabrics

Other: Brass Brads, raffia, acetate scraps, strong double sided tape

Directions: 1. Create tri-fold card base of cardstock. Cut arched top. Cut door panels of contrasting color. Emboss in wood grain. Punch window openings in panels using square punch, twice; save squares for bottom accent. Punch two squares of the light paper for door bottom. 2. Apply acetate to window opening; attach tulle with double sided tape. 3. Glue narrow strips around window opening. Layer squares and apply to bottom of door. Attach brad and place doors onto trifold base. 4. Stamp and cut accents for window and arch. Attach to card. Trim arch and door top with scraps.
