Barn Door – the easy way

I love the Barn Door stamp set and coordinating framelits, but after putting one together with washers etc, I knew I wouldn’t do it again.  It looked great, but man was that a lot of work.  You can see my initial barn door card below.  I figured there must be something I could put together that would be a bit easier to create but still have the same fun look.  Here’s my card.


First off, I chose Cherry Cobbler for the barn.  One of my customers had made a card using cherry cobbler and it was awesome.  Loved how it looked like those red barns you used to see across the country.  I cut a 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece and ran it through the Pinewood Planks embossing folder but first I had inked up the raised side of the embossing folder with Memento Ink.  That gave the pinewood planks even more definition.

I also cut the barn door size out of one side so my sentiments could show through.  The barn door was stamped with Memento on whisper white, cut with the framelit, then sponged with cherry cobbler.  I added the hardware just to make it look like it slides, but it does not.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy your week.
