Shut the Front Door

IT’S NEW YEARS! This year has gone by so quickly (I think I say that every year). There is a little background to the left hand card. My best friend Kim Aldridge is very fond of non traditionally colored holiday cards so each year I have tried to create a card with her in mind. Now we have a Gorgeous Grape Door.

Start with Whisper White for the base which is then covered with the Brick Pattern Party Mask and daub with Basic Gray Ink. Stamp the door from the At Home With You Bundle in Basic Gray on watercolor paper. Using an Aqua Painter color the door Gorgeous Grape. Adhere an Iridescent Boxwood Wreath Embellishments to the door with glue dots and Stamp the inside in with the sentiment of your choice in Gorgeous Grape. This card says celebrate the season but it can be changed for any sentiment such as “congrats” for a new home owner.

Thinking of you this season is the last “holiday” card for the year but like the door card the sentiment can be changed out for any occasion. CASE’d from Debbie Dam Prims.

The base is Mossy Meadow and is a SINGLE 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece. Cut a separate piece of Whisper White Card stock in half on the short side and turn the fold so it is on the left side. With the wave die cut the hill on the top of the card and remove by manually cutting it at the fold and reserve for later use. Open the card and stamp the background trees in Gray Granite. Stamp the pine trees for the background and one on the reserved piece in Mossy Meadow. Cut out the tree from the reserved piece with the die and big shot. Adhere the cut out tree after lifting the boughs for texture to the front of the card and adhere Metallic Pearls to accent. Stamp the sentiment of choice.
