Front door scene Christmas card

I have folded an white A3 piece of card from Anna Marie to make an A4 card. I have  layered the front of my card with red card from Pay Per Box and embossed white card from Hobbycraft and tan card from Lidl. I have embossed using an Embossalicious dotty folder and a brick effect folder that I had free on a magazine. The card I have used for the majority of the other elements is from Lidl. 

I have die cut the door, window, curtains, branch, fence and lamp using Memory box dies. I have printed an image of Santa to put behind the window. I have cut the number using a Tattered Lace die. I like to add the house number of the recipient. I have cut the ovals using Press Cut dies
and then added the sentiment which I have cut using a Elizabeth Craft Designs die. 

I have adapted the bird using a Marianne die to make a robin. I have made the wreath by cutting a ring out of green and then die cut some greenery and built this up on the ring with 3D gel. I cut some small flowers using a Xcut die and added these to my dry wreath.
I cut the snowman using a Marianne die.
