Check out the beautiful cards using this series by heading to the TE Gallery and searching on "Door to Door".
Surprisingly, I hadn't played with these dies yet. I made a brick wall and then I cut a white door - but I wanted it a bit more "cheerful". Being truly terrible at home design, I googled - and check all of these colorful door for brick houses!
So once I decided on a cheerful yellow door, I got really carried away. What if a party monkey was peeking out!!
- I did the brick simply by inking the embossing folder with white before embossing.
- I cut the door out of the brick by using the steps as a guide. Lay the steps down in the corner of the red cardstock, place the door die and cut. (FYI - this card does not open to the inside - it just opens through the brick)
- The door frame doesn't come with the die set. I just cut a piece of paper slightly bigger than the door and then die cut the door right out of the middle of it - leaving the frame.
- I used a light piece of vellum that I cut the same height as the door but about 3/8" wider. I adhered it to the back of the door leaving the extra sticking out of the left side. Then I adhered that to the back of the brick making a hinge!
That silly party monkey makes me smile!
