The Christmas Door

 My new Unity stamps arrived yesterday woo hoo :) I was actually waiting on my angel Arianna Girl stamp but she has not yet appeared. So I decided to make something with the other stamps that came. I started off with the The Most Wonderful Time of the Year stamp set that includes a sleigh I love sleighs :) But I could not get my sleigh coloured the way I wanted. After 4 tries and crumpled paper everywhere I gave up and decided to change direction. So I got one of the single sentiments out that I ordered Sending Christmas Blessings I love that sentiment it is also hard to find so I am glad Unity sells it :)

I wanted the sentiment in a circle but my punch was too small so I used a candle to make the circle drew around it cut it out then put the sentiment in the middle. I wanted to make a wreath but I did not have any wreath type things to make it with. So I dug out my hydrangea punch and did the best I could. I used green glitter card to give it some sparkle. I added some red rhinestones and a red ribbon bow. I was going for the Unity colors of the month so needed something brown to add to it. I had a kraft card base that would fit in the colour scheme and added the wreath to it but it looked to plain then I thought I will try and make it into a door.



  I had seen some lovely Christmas doors on other blogs and pinterest but they seemed a little elaborate for me and I don't own a die cut machine so the ones I really wanted to make I just did not have the tools for. So I figured I would do my own style I cut out a large square and 2 rectangles. I used my scoreboard to make lines around it to give some dimension.


 It needed something else so I sponged a around them with memento  rich cocoa ink. I glued it all together and colored in a white pearl with a brown marker and it actually came out copper so fitted as a door knob nicely.  I added the wreath and here is the finished card it turned out so much better than my sleigh did I just love it :)
