Thank You Friend Barn Door Slider Card
I've had the Barn Door bundle for four months now so for this week's Creative Cat Crew color challenge #56 I told myself I was going to use it. It helped that I am staying the night at my mom's and her husband is a car guy and welder so I knew I would be able to get the right size of washers needed to build the sliding door mechanism.
Here's this weeks inspiration image The colors are called out as Greens, Yellows, Reds, black and white. I chose to use Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Real Red.
I needed to add one more color because the black door harware would not have shown on a black wall, so I used basic gray and stamped black wood using the hardwood stamp. Ironically barn walls are solid wood planks set horizontally in a channel, so having the horizontal hardwood works perfectly.
The barn door stamp set sentiments did not work for me so I used the thank you and friend sentiments from the Love What You Do stamp set that has been a special early release item from the new catalog going live on June 1st. The stamp set is part of three bundles for the month of May if you cannot wait for June to order it. The bundles have some fun items, including freebies and they are listed in the supplies below.
I made a quick video of tips and tricks for assembly of the Barn Door elements (This is not a start to finish video, there's lots of those to watch). Video Length 5 min. 52 sec.
I have entered this project in the following challenges:
