Welcome in the Holidays

Good Morning!

Tomorrow is Sparkle and Sprinkle’s Magical Winter Moments Blog Hop!  The hop will begin at the Sparkle and Sprinkle blog, and as always, there will be lots of prizes up for grabs…I hope that you can participate!

To get you in the mood for winter, I’m showing off my Holiday Door card that I made using the Snowflakes stamp (3383-414A) from the Winter Swirl set (414).  I made a card similar to this last year, with an dry embossed background.  I never posted it, but over the summer a friend of mine mentioned it, and I thought I would try making it with a traditional stamp.  I stamped in Versamark (99702) first, and then heat set the snowflakes after sprinkling on White Detail (EP298) embossing powder.

This idea for the door didn’t originate with me.  Long before I had a blog, I saw someone make a similar kind of card, but they didn’t list the dimensions of the plain card stock rectangles they used for the door.  Too lazy to figure it out for myself, the idea was hatched sometime later, when I realized these dies cuts would work.

The door was created using the Long Rectangle dies from Spellbinders.  After they were cut out, I kept the die in place and sponged on some chalk to highlight the panels.

To make the spray on the door, I punched out my branches, pressed them in Versamark, dipped them in Forest Green (EP282) embossing powder, and heat set.  I tied a bow using ribbon and attached everything on my card with  1/4″ Tear-ific Tape (SAT01).


Remember, these stamps and many more are 15% off this month and there will be many more winter themed cards coming your way tomorrow…Hope to see you along the hop!

 Oh, and one more thing!  Sparkle and Sprinkle has a Design Team call out right now.  If you love  their products, check out the details right here!  Good luck :)

This is a cute idea. Does the door open?
