OWH World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Creative Card Making Greetings to you on World Card Making Day!

What a thrill it is to be part of Operation Write Home's Blog Hop today, I enjoyed the Memorial Day Blog Hop and didn't want to miss this one.

I've always liked the look of a cheery red front door at holiday time, so I created a card with just that look.

I enjoyed making this gift tag using the Interior Design CST Grand Entrance Wood Mounted stamp. I've always enjoyed this stamp and was glad to work it into my winter/holiday card making blog here.
Of course there was some assembly required. Thinking a sketch wouldn't really be that helpful in this case, so I took a couple pics during the process. Hoping you don't mind seeing my messy work surface in the next couple pics. I stamped the door image twice onto white cardstock and once onto red.

After cutting out the red door, and the white area surrounding the door, I was ready to assemble.


Here is my dimensional holiday door.



I embellished the door with a Jesse James Dress It Up Holiday Collection mini cookie cutter and Glossy Accents. I think it looks pretty Christmassy.

Thank for looking and hoping this blog hop is getting you thinking about the holiday season as much as I am (yes, already).

  1. I have always been attracted to door and window stamps and so I spent a lot of time going over your entire post really thoroughly. I LOVE what you did with this card and can hardly wait to get going on coming up with something of my own. Thank you so much for all the inspiration!

  2. Lovely card-I never thought to add glossy accents to those Jess James embellishments-great idea. I have some door dies that I have been dying to get out-you've inspired me!
