Home Sweet Home
The challenge over at Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar is to use a door or window on your card. Well this gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new Cheery Lynn Designs Screen Door w/dog. Dog, you say!!??; thought it was a Cat. They slipped in a second version for all those dog lovers out there. And being the owner of both a dog and a cat, of course I had to have both styles, lol. I began with a square card base to which I added a piece of gingham paper from the Generations 6x6 paper pack by Simple Stories. Next I die cut my door out of the same card stock as the card base. I laid the door on my card stock and traced around it; then cut inside the lines by about 1/8th of an inch. I added the screen to my door (the die comes with 2 pieces of screen) then attached it to the front of the card. I die cut another door from the wrong side of my card stock and adhered it to the inside of the card. I added another piece of patterned card stock from the paper pack to the inside of the card.
Using black card stock, I die cut the dog as well as the hardware on the door. Using more paper from the Generations collection, I die cut Cheery Lynn's Victorian Picket Fence, adding part to each side of the door. I also placed a bit of Cheery Lynn's Grass Border at the base of the fence. The Home Sweet Home is from one of the papers in the pack, I just trimmed out the words. I stamped this adorable Hanglar boy with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper. Copics used:
Boy - E000, E11, R20
Hair - E21, E23, E25
Shirt and Socks - E70, E71, E74
Pants - YG93, YG95, YG97
Shoes - E23, E25
Shadow - W1
I added a silver gem for the door knob, a bit of black Glaze pen for nails on the door and that was it. Finished size is 6" square.
