Barn Door Card

by Robyn Rasset

Animals peek out over the front flap of this cute card.


  • Cardstock (Stampin' Up!® Real Red, Basic White and Basic Gray cardstock used here)
  • Patterned paper (SU Heart & Home (Boards Pattern) DSP used here)
  • Ink (Memento Tuxedo Black used here)
  • Character stamps (SU Peekaboo Farm and Mischievous Mice sets used here)
  • Paper trimmer
  • Foam tape (SU Dimensionals used here)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (SU products used here: Rustic Metallic Dots, Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers, Deckle Dies)


  1. Step 1

    Cut paper:
    11” x 4 1/4” cardstock card base, scored at 5 1/2”
    4” x 5 1/4” board pattern paper (boards vertical)
    2” x 5 1/4” board pattern paper (boards horizontal)
    3/4” x 2 3/4” board pattern paper (or as needed for sentiment)
    1” x 3” gray cardstock (or as needed for layering sentiment

  2. Step 2

    Remove the top half of the card front by cutting down 2 1/8” along the score line. Line up the front outside top corner at the 2 1/8” mark on the trimmer and cut down to the score line, meeting the first cut.

  3. Step 3

    Adhere the patterned papers, the larger board pattern piece on the inside of the card, and the 2" strip on the front.

  4. Step 4

    Stamp, color, and fussy cut the animals.

  5. Step 5

    Adhere the animals to the inside of the card using foam tape. Place them with the lower edge just over the barn door.

  6. Step 6

    Embellish the card as desired. For the sample, a greeting was stamped on a scrap of the barn board paper cut with a deckle edge die. Rustic Metallic Dot nails were added to the sentiment panel.

  7. Step 7

    Complete the project.
