I decided to try a different size card and go with a 7 1/2" x 4 3/4". So I got out my gypsy and away I went. I chose to use the cricut cartridge "Christmas". Several months ago, I came across this card and wanted to make it for our Christmas card this year. This is what I came up with and what better time to get started then now. I've got to make over 90 cards this year along with envelopes.
The main base of the card is cut at 7 1/2" high and only is brown cardstock. I welded the duplicate door and hid all features. So the back of the card is solid. I then cut the tan cardstock at the same size but this time hiding all features except window. This was then attached to the main base card. The door panel was cut once is tan with all features hidden. Then again in brown with all features.
For the tan panel is ran it through my cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz "wood" folder. Then I adhered the brown to the tan. I then used foam tape to adhere to main card trying to give it some dimension.
For the wreath, I cut everything out at 2.40" including the bow. I used Tim Holtz tea dye around the main wreath. The lighter green paper is from Core Couture "apple Martini". For the red bow, I used the tea dye and my zig pen "black". I then attached the bow to the wreath and then to the door using foam tape. After all was in place, I glued a red rhinestone in the middle of the bow.
Then finally, was the door handle and knob. I cut the handle at the same size as the door (7 1/2"). I pierced a brown brad in the middle for the knob. Because of the brad, I used foam tape again. Allowing more dimension to the card.
I haven't yet thought of a saying to go inside. But heck, we are only in July...........
