Holiday Welcome

Hi there! Hope you're enjoying your Sunday so far. I am really cherishing my weekends now, since I'm finding that I don't have much down time during the week! I'm realizing that papercrafting is truly such a relaxing activity to me, that now that I don't have as much time for it, I'm sort of going through some crafting withdrawal. Who knew?! Well, luckily, after doing a bunch of chores and errands yesterday, I got the chance to do some blurfing, and was inspired to create this card! I love all the house themed cards I'm seeing on blogs and websites and things, so I wanted to create a door card. And, you all know how I love the snowflake punch, so imagine how excited I got when I discovered it can be a wreath, too! Isn't this door fun? Can you believe there's no stamping involved - just all kinds of fun papercrafting! Here's a full view: I made my snowy door by using a sponge dauber and the Frost White Shimmer Paint. My door knob is from the 5/16" Jumbo brads. Here's a close up of the wreath - it's just 2 punched out snowflakes from the Merry Moments DSP - I picked the pattern that had 2 different greens on both sides. And, of course, I had to put a button in the center. I think it finishes it off - what do you think? Here's the recipe:
{Holiday Welcome Door Card}
All supplies Stampin'Up!
*Cardstock: Real Red, Merry Moments DSP
*Accessories: Jumbo Snowflake punch, White Taffeta ribbon, Playground button, Linen Thread, Jumbo Brad, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Sponge Dauber
Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by! :)
