LMM: Park Glen Door Die

There is new release at Little Miss Muffet.  I have been SO excited about this one - Barbara has designed this fabulous die!  There are more dies in the works we are told.  Can't wait!  This is Park Glen Door Die.
I used all the pieces the die punches on this card.  There is the screen door frame, 3 hinges (that work), the door plate with keyhole, door handle and key.  This was SO fun to play with!

The designer paper is My Mind's Eye "Howdy Doody".  I cut the door opening in the patterned paper. I also cut a door out of Bazzill Walnut (Door frame) and Java (hardware).  

To add the screen (thanks Barbara!), I add some double sided tape to the back of the brown door, then laid it on the mesh screen material.  Then I could trim around the perimeter of the door.  This is a 5.5" square card.  The door is approx. 2-9/16 wide x 4.5" tall.  It would make a lovely window too.

I added a couple mini antique brads to make a door knob and hook for the key.  Last night, when I was lying bed I got to thinking it would be pretty easy to make the door latch and the handle work - hmm - next time.  The verse is from a TAC stamp set. 

One other thing - I used my Grand Calibur with this die (normal base and cutting plate) and it cut and embossed all at once.  Love that!

  5. I absolutely love this! I love making screen door cards but hand cutting them is not fun! This might just have to be a "need" for my craft room!
