Christmas Door - Card

I made this card especially for a person so I actually only made one *okie hears the gasps*. Well it was a last minute thing and I needed it done in a hurry so I didn't have time to mess around with cutting out  more than one. I did however save the file in Design Studio and might make some for next year since I was pleased with how it turned out. It is bigger than an A2 card, it is classified as an A6 card, which measures 4.5 x 6.25 inches.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Christmas cartridge
Cricut Brown Marker
Cuttlebug Large Dot folder
Various cardstock
Stampin Up Photo Corner Punch
Glossy Accents
Signo UM 153 white gel pen
Mounting Foam

I used Glossy Accents in the window pane area to give it a more realistic look and I think it really added to the look of the window above the door.

On the wreath I added some marks on the top leaves with a Stampin Up marker and then dotted white dots for berries using the gel pen. I used another Stampin Up marker to go over the lines of the ribbon on the wreath.

I used mounting foam to pop dot the photo corners and the door. I also pop dotted the wreath on the door and then the step in front of the door.

I used a brad to make the door knob because I thought it looked better than the plain Cricut cut.

I used Microsoft Word to do the sentiment for the inside of the card and went with two different fonts. I am not sure I really like the sentiment but it's there now so it will have to do!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas day!
