Dutch Door/Barn Door Card | Best Wishes

I have heard this type of card called a Dutch Door Card or Barn Door Card.  I thought I would share this with you so that you can see more of the prints in action from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).

I layered some of the patterns from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051)  onto pieces of Lemon Grass (CS-0019) before adhering them to a Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base.  Using the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544), I stamped the flower image on Whip Cream (CS-0040) in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink and then the stems in Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink.  I used the Journey Ovals (DI-0042) to cut out the stamped piece.  Using Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink, I stamped the Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock before cutting it out using the coordinating die.

Using Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I brushed the Sparkle Silk onto the floral image.

Using the Just Write Gel Pens (JD-0060), I traced over the letters in Best Wishes to add a little more interest.

I adhered the pieces onto the card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081.  I still felt that it needed something so I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292).  I really think they helped to finish off the card.

And because I am curious, what do you call this type of card, Dutch Door or Barn Door.  Drop me a comment and let me know.

I stamped the saying Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

I added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to the Best Wishes piece and well as the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) piece.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) I adhered the Spring Filled Prints piece to a piece of Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) before adhering it to the Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the Best Wishes onto the lower right corner of the card front.

I love that the focal point of this card is really the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).  They are so beautiful that they really should take center stage.

Spring Botanicals Card Set

I am loving the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set.  I don’t know how to explain it other than to say that the stamped images have so much depth that you would think that it was two step or triple step stamping.  But it is really just one step stamping!

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 1

I decided to make several different cards with different sayings and used the ink colors for the card bases for these cards.  On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped the sentiments in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  The sentiments came from Everyday Script (SS-0543) and Bird Melody (SS-0496).

Then I stamped various images from the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set in the following inks:  Summer Days (IP-0042), Pool Play (IP-0051), Bubble Gum (IP-0058) and Lavender Fusion (IP-0036).

These panels were then adhered to the card bases using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  I used Summer Days (CS-0033), Pool Play (CS-0092), Bubble Gum (CS-0099) and Lavender Fusion (CS-0017) for the card bases.  Super easy, super quick and really gorgeous.  A set of these would make a wonderful hand-made gift for someone.  Why not make a couple sets so that you have them on hand.

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 2

With Fun Stampers Journey color palette of inks and coordinating cardstock, the color combinations are endless.

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 1

There are several stamp sets just like this one in the Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog (CL-0030).  I love this new stamp design.  So much fun!

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
