Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday “Barn Door” Card

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Attaching the Barn door:

(See my link below to go to my blog card that shows pictures of the pennies and mini dimensionals on the card)

  • Put a mini Stamin Dimensional in the center of 4 pennies
  • Lay the pennies down, Dimensional side up and place the dimensional in the channel, two on the top and two on the bottom
  • Slide two of the pennies (top and bottom) over to the left and two over to the right
  • Peel off the protective coating on the dimensional and place the left side of the barn door on the dimensionals (see photo below)
  • Repeat on the right side of the channel with the the other two pennies
  • Place your left hand side of the door on top of the dimesionals and pennies on the left and then repeat with the right side of your door with the pennies on the right side.
  • Your door should slide back and forth
  • Turn your card over the place  Foam Adhesive Strips above and below your pennies and on the side and middle
  • Adhere this to the card front
