Hello, Bee friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here sharing this sweet little room with a view card. My card features the new Honey Bee Stamps She Shed Barn Add-On stamp and coordinating die sets. This add-on is designed to work with the Barn Scene Builder die set. It has all the bells and whistles to make a plain old shed into a sweet shed that a woman (or man) might enjoy, one decked out with flowers, chandeliers, windows, etc. For my card, I gave this shed a very pretty beachfront view, too. Why not?! It’s summertime!
I’m using the following Honey Bee Stamps products:
To create this card, I started by die cutting two shed base and two roof pieces from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock and two from pattern paper – a faux beach-weathered wood pattern paper for the front and a shell pattern paper for the inside. Both are from the Beach Vibes pattern paper pad. I also stamped, colored and die cut the flowers, planters, lights, garland, “hello” sign and curtains all from the She Shed Barn Add-On sets.
To create the functioning French doors on the front, I die cut the window frames from a brown cardstock, and added the curtains. I also placed the window frames on the front of the shed, traced around them and cut out the opening for the doors. Next I added hidden “hinges” to attach the doors to the shed front. Once the scored hinges were attached to the shed and French doors, I sandwiched the hinges by adding one of the white cardstock shed die cuts (with a matching cut out section) to the back to cleanly finish the the back side and backed the curtains with a clean white die cut to conceal the hinge (you’ll see this in an upcoming photo).
For the inside panel, I added windows, chairs, chandelier, sconces and a cute dog to the shell pattern die cut. Since the chairs were drawn from a back view, I wanted anyone sitting in these chairs to enjoy a beach view in front.
To create the beach view, I stamped the pane windows on the landscape pattern paper and layered white window frame die cuts over them to create the windows. I did the same for the smaller windows, above the larger windows.
I added the flowers, side sconces (made from leftover lights from the front string of lights) and the chandelier over the windows. Next, I hinged the front and back panels together using the extra white shed and roof pieces cut in an earlier step. I used a white hinge (made my cutting a white rectangular cardstock piece and scoring down the middle to fit the length of the roof edge) and sandwiched it between the white backing and the other white roof die cut and the back the of the shell paper and a white backing, the second of the two white shed cuts. Lastly, I stamped and die cut the “best wishes” words and attached them to the inside. This card could be used for retirement, anniversary, thank you, birthday, new home… you name it. Just change the sentiment to fit the purpose.
