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.

Cute card. Love the dog die cut. Can you buy him separately. Don't need another storm door. LOL The little boy adds a different approach to the card instead of a girl and I like that. Edna

Oh my, what a wonderful special creation, Sandy! It's great to see something different for a change, and so creative too:) Love the way you imagined the little scene and assembled the door, how sweet!
Thanks for joining us at Just Magnolia this week! Hope to see you again soon!

I sure get into a lot of trouble reading your blog. As soon as I saw this card, I just had to get the screen door and the paper you used. What a darling card!
