Shut the Front Door!

  Hopefully you have all of your cards finished and in the mail and don't need any more inspiration for this year but I thought I would share a card that I made 10 of last week.  You can always 'Pin It' for next year (and hope that you remember to look back at it!).  I needed some more cards to send out and saw a bunch of this style last year and thought it was so cute and now I finally got around to making one of my own.  This design comes together quickly (if you pay attention and cut the cardstock right the first time or even the second time---third time's a charm!).

 The base is Early Espresso and the panels of the door are made from the Core'dinations Early Espresso cardstock.  Once I embossed them with the Woodgrain embossing folder and sanded them a bit they really began to look like a weathered front door.

  The wreath is made by stamping the Blue Ribbon stamp in Gumball Green onto Gumball Green Core'dinations cardstock and using the matching punches to cut out first the center circle and then the scalloped circle.  The bow is 1/8" taffeta Real Red ribbon and is adhered to the wreath with a glue dot.

  The door knob is just a Gold Glimmer brad.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
