Fire scene Christmas Card

I have used an A3 piece of white card to make a gate fold card. I have covered the outside with spotty card from Anna Marie and the inside centre also with spotty card. I have also used patterned paper from Lidl or the inside of my card. I have cut a strip of white card and creased it before sticking it to flat to the bottom of the inside of my card. This is to resemble skirting. I have used the following die to create a scene. I then added the Welsh sentiment on bunting, Nadolig Llawen is Welsh for Merry Christmas

Window - Memory Box
Curtains - Memory Box
Cupboard - Marianne
Fireplace and accessories which includes candlesticks - Die'sire
Christmas tree - Sue Wilson 
reindeer - Cheery Lynn
Christmas Tree outside - Spellbinders
Chandelier - Tattered Lace
Triangle - Sizzix
Letters - Xcut

For the front I have cut two of the windows for each door and attached 2 of them to a piece of white card and cut around them leaving a border. I did this again for the other side then attached them to both sides of the gatefold.

I die cut the wreath three times with a Xcut die and the mistletoe and added them to the top of the door on one side so the card can be opened. I have added flat backed pearls on the front and the cupboard as handles.
