Realistic house front
Next, I had to make the door open so I traced the door on the back side of my brick wall and trimmed that part out. I glued a back piece on the door that was long enough to reach behind the main panel so that it would stay attached yet look like it was just opening with it's hinges. When you open the door you see more matching corners and the Stampin' Up sentiment Your friendship makes my heart happy.
There wasn't room to write much inside so I decided to glue the entire front to a card and on the inside I stamped another SU phrase... Just a little note to tell you how special you are. The matte it's stamped on is a label die from Spellbinders and the border was cut with an EK Success border punch. I used some of the cut outs as corners. There is plenty of room inside here for her to write her personal message. It took a long time to make but I'm very pleased with how this one turned out. I don't often have time to put this much effort into a card so it's nice when I can once in a while.
