Fusion - Old Door Charm

It's rather late in the day but I've had this card made for Fusion for a week now and have put off posting it.  If I don't do it now, I may miss the deadline so here it is.

Those of you who know me know I love old and rustic and so this door charmed me right off the bat and I set out to make my card right away.  It took some finagling but it turned out just like I wanted, something that hasn't been happening to me much since then.

I cut the door with my Cricut and then stamped and inked, and inked and crackled (with Distress Crackle Paint.  The background is SSS Smoke run through with my Bricked ef and then mounted on Slate cardstock.  Another piece of Slate was put behind the door where the sentiment from PTI (I found it!  I couldn't remember what set it was from when I was looking for it.) is embossed with Liquid Platinum.  I also used it on the brad door knob.  If I saw this in an antique shop, life size, I'd probably buy it.  No, not my card, the door in the inspiration photo.  :)

Good night all.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. That door is a stunner, Bobby, and it looks fabulous against the brick! I'd buy one too if I saw it. :)

  2. Oh I love that door...the vellum behind it is fabulous! Thanks so much for playing with us at Fusion!

  3. You have so much texture here... the embossed brick, the wood veneer door, and even the gold embossed sentiment. Really clever and a wonderful take on the challenge!!

    1. The door is not wood veneer, Jeanne. It's cardstock inked and crackles.

  4. What a clever doorknob ... and I adore how you turned *paper* into such a fantastic door ... so very glad you joined us at Fusion Card Challenge.

  5. Bobby so many awesome details, just gorgeous!

  6. Great job on your door, Bobby! You've weathered it well ... it would make quite a buy at an antique market, that's for sure! The sentiment fits perfectly.
