Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a "better late than never" graduation card which I made using two ODBD challenges and the Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge (to have something on your project which moves). The Shining the Light Challenge is to base your project on this song lyric: "You're a grand old flag, you're a high flying flag.".......use a flag, or something that flies, or something that is high.......okay, I'm stretching here, but inside the door is a scene with clouds...clouds fly (or is it float?!) and they are high, right? Also, the Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge with Betty is to use something recycled....the twill ribbon was recycled from a stack of wash cloths.....anybody else buy more expensive choice of something just to be able to reuse the packaging?! I think I have a "problem"! :)
This card looks pretty simple, but it was a bit tricky to create the double door. The real stamped door image from the ODBD set, "Ask, Seek, Knock", is the open door view below. I wanted the door to open and it looked funny opening to the left, so I stamped it onto vellum, colored it with markers, then made a sticker out of it and adhered to white cardstock. I used a craft knife to cut around the door and my Scor-buddy to score the hinged side so that it would fold smoothly. Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the door on the back side. On a separate white piece, the grass and clouds were sponged.....once it was adhered to the back, the scripture verse was stamped in.
