June 2012 Trail Map by Regena


Swirly (Inkadinkadoo)
Red card stock (C.S.) (Co're dination)
Black C.S.
Brown C.S.
White C.S.
 Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad (Tsukineko)
Screen Door/cat die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Metal screen comes w/die (Cheery Lynn Designs, or can buy a roll at the local hardware store)
Border punch (EK Success)
Brick embossing folder (Sizzix)
 Pearl pen for hinges and handle (Unknown)

c.s. = cardstock


  1. Die cut the screen door from brown c.s. and the cat  with black c.s. A few screens come with the die, but  I bought a roll at Ace hardware for about 8 dollars.  That should last me about 62 years.
  2. Distress the door. I used white and brown ink pads.  Rough up the screen, even poking a few holes. Use any scrap paper as backing.
  3. Border punch right side of shiny black c.s. (Oops, my camera reflection is in there) Apply to basic white card.
  4. Emboss red c.s. (two pieces for the 5x7) then sand  some highlights.
  5. Make up a "saying" and print on white c.s. then frame with black c.s. and apply as shown.
  6. Pearl pen was used for the handle and hinges.  Stamp swirly on top and there you go.
