Knock on the door...
Another sample from my shows starting Friday and continuing on Saturday open Hochanda. This is made using the exact same die sets as yesterdays card. I know that doesnt seem possible as that was a shuttered window and this is a classic door but thats the versatility of this die set. I have titled this post Knock on the door as there is a surprise if you open the door on this card!
I stared by cutting the whole window / door die in ruby foundation card twice. The second die cut I cut the door panel and the arched window die. I then embossed the panel die into the red piece that falls out and then reattached it in the opening to make a door.
This means that when you open the door you have the message, and the cat, visible. I stamped the sentiment from the Sue Wilson clear stamp set I have on the show. I cut that cat which comes in the set in black card and added this at the bottom.
For the reminder of the card I embossed a piece of coconut white foundation card and added a panel of grey at the bottom to represent the pavement. I then cut the topiary tree die twice ( i chose the rounded one as there are 2 in the set) and added a gloss black pot. Finally I added the spring Foliage die along with the small flowers cut in primrose.
A different card style but I love the kinetic element with the door opening!
