Door cards have become so popular in paper crafting. You just have to see how Kittie makes these amazing scenes. We love how she challenges herself making each door scene unique by adding seasonal embellishments. For this pretty summer scene she used the some of our amazing die-cuts that you don’t want to miss: Door with Steps, Macrame Planters, Tall Terracotta Pots, Small Flowers #1, Small Flowers #3, Tiny Flower Buds, Grass Set, Puppies, Knob Top Fence and Leaves and Greenery.
Follow along with her process below and be inspired:
The Siding Card Base
- Cut several 1/2 x 4 1/4″ strips of white cardstock
- Apply ATG adhesive to a strip and attach it on the bottom of the card base.
- Continue attaching the strips overlapping each strip slightly over the strip below it until you reach the blue layer..
Assemble The Door
- Cut the door sections using white cardstock.
- Attach the pieces together using double stick tape.
- Cut white cardstock to fit behind the window openings and attach to the back of the door using double stick tape.
- Attach the whole window unit to the door using strips of double stick tape.
- Attach the door to the card base using double stick tape.
The Fence and Grass Layers
- Cut the grass layer using green cardstock and the fence using white cardstock.
- Attach double stick tape to the back of the grass layer and attach the fence sections.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the grass and fence layer and attach it to the card base.
The Macrame Planters, Flowers, Pots and Vines
- Cut the pots pots using yellow cardstock and color using a mini applicator and inks from the Color Fuse Set #2.
- Use white cardstock to cut the macrame planter and attach it to the flower pot using glossy accents.
- Cut several sets of the leaves and greenery to use in the planter and to create the vines.
- Use light and dark pink cardstock to cut the flowers and form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Attach the foliage and flowers to the hanging planter and pot using glossy accents and attach them to the card base with strips of mounting tape.
- Attach the tall vines to the door and fence using glossy accents.
- Use glossy accents to attach the tiny flower buds to the vines.
- Cut the puppy using white cardstock and color the ears, tail and feet using a dark brown marker.
- Cut a small piece of white cardstock for the ear.
- Color the ear with the brown marker and attach it to the puppy head using glossy accents.
- Attach the puppy to the grass using a piece of mounting tape.
- Note: I think using an animal in an outdoor scene adds interest and adds a breath of life to the scene.
We hope you enjoyed todays post with Kittie and leave inspired to papercraft your heart out this weekend!
