Well, today this cute little door die from Cheery Lynn got used. It came with a screen door piece, but that did not seem appropriate for a Christmas card, because, unless you live in a warm climate, you don't have your screen door open at Christmas time... So, I backed it with another piece of the same color and it looked more like a front door. The red was not as vibrant as I had hoped, so I spray painted it. The doorknob is a brass brad.
I saw this cute little wreath on someone's blog one day and thought it would be fun to replicate. Wish I could tell you whose blog it was, but that was awhile ago, and it would really be hard to find it again. I started out with a ring cut from dark green paper and glued pine sprigs from a Martha Stewart punch around it to make the wreath. A gold three-looped bow tops the wreath.
I wanted a brick background, but all the EFs I own have the bricks going the wrong direction, so I went outside and took a picture of the side of my house and printed it out for the "house" background. The sentiment is printed from my computer and punched out with a Stampin' Up punch.
Here is the card:
However, the door smashed up against the bricks just did not look right, so I added a door frame beneath the red door and attached the whole of it to the brick background with pop dots. The upper corners of the frame are scored:
