Now for today's project. This week, I am using one of Sin City Scraps fabulous rubber stamp plates. This one is called Metal Madness, and I have to say, I am absolutely "mad" for this one. The images on this plate are absolutely gorgeous, and my mind is reeling with ideas for this set.
To begin with, I made this really cool card using this ornamental background image. It reminds me of an ornate door, so I decided to go with that.
1. When embossing onto card stock, especially a glossy card stock, it is a good idea to swipe the card with an anti-static pouch to help keep the stray embossing powder from sticking to the card.
11. To make the door open, you will need some sort of hinge. When I saw these ornate decorations, I thought "hinge". Follow steps 1-3 using black detail embossing powder.
16. Here is what your hinge should look like when finsihed.

I hope you have been inspired to try making a door front card. Just imagine all the things you could hide beneath the door, to the surprise and wonderment of the recipient.
