Front Door Christmas Card

I enjoyed using the Crafters Companion embossing folder on Saturday so I couldn't wait to use it again. Here it is again this time for a home front door scene.

I have embossed tan card and inked over it with a black ink pad. I have matt and layered my A4 card with red card and then the tan card and white card. Part of the white card has been embossed and the bottom has been die cut with a Cheery Lynn die to create a snowy scene. 

I have die cut the following elements to create my scene:

Door - Memory Box
Window -  Memory Box
Curtains - Memory Box
Fence - Memory Box
Christmas Tree - Spellbinders
Lamp - Marianne
Snowflakes - Cheery Lynn
Wreath - Dovecraft
Number - Tattered Lace
Santa and Sleigh - Cheery Lynn
Snowman - Marianne
Small lamp - Marianne
Christmas Tree scene - Memory Box

After die cutting the elements it is simple to assemble the card using glue or double sided tape for the larger elements. I die cut three wreaths to layer them up and then added red Tonic Nuvo for berries and a bow. When the completed wreath was dry I added it to the door. I finally added Tonic Nuvo Glitter Accents to my project add a snowy effect.
