Wow...A Christmas Card to Share Before December!

Hi, Liz here from http://lizziesworldofcrafting.blogspot.com/ and today I have a Christmas card that I made to share with you.

Every year I try and get them finished in time to mail out the first week of December and I finally succeeded in doing so this year.  I got the inspiration from a picture I saw online and used my cricut for the finished product.

 I used Stampin Up card stock in sand and cut it to fit the front of an A2 sized card.  I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the two squares (2") for the top of the door and a 3" rectangle for the bottom of the door.  The ribbon is ruby red stampin' up.  I used Christmas Cheer for the wreath cut at 2".  A rhinestone and viva decor pen in red completed the wreath.

I inked the edges of the door with Tim Holtz walnut distress ink and used stampin up ruby red for the sentiment.  The stamp is from the Recollection brand at Michaels.  A brad completes the door handle.

I hope every one has a joyful holiday season.

Have a sparkling day and thanks for stopping by!!!
