Two Barn Doors are Better Than One

Two Barn Doors card, 2018 Stampin’ Up Occasions by Krista Thomas

If one barn door is good, then two is better, right?  I thought it would be fun to create a larger opening using this new bundle, found in Stampin’ Up’s 2018 Occasions catalog, and I still wanted the doors to slide open.

Here’s what’s behind the sliding doors:

Barn Door Bundle & Hedgehugs, Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions

It’s that cute Hedgehug stamp set again!  This time I used both hedgehogs, one in Powder Pink, the other in Soft Sky and both with Early Espresso ink.  They are fussy cut (with scissors) and glued onto a Crumb Cake panel that is 3 7/8” x 2 1/2”.
Even though I wanted a bigger opening and thought that having two doors would make it so, it didn’t turn out that way because the runners behind the doors prevented it.
Next time I’ll try adding the hardware on the outer edges and make the barn doors swing open.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
Since I wrote this post, I found this card by Debbie Henderson, so I guess great minds think alike!
