Door Wreath

Hello & Happy Sunday, friends!

Today while watching football I sat at my stamp table and decided to make a card that I have been wanting to make except that my MS Fern Punch had broken on me out in Joplin and I have not been able to find one to replace it. Then I had seen my friend, Carol, from over at Our Little Inspirations posted a card awhile back that I commented on and wished I was able to find that punch to make that card. She kindly emailed me and sent me a link as to where I could purchase that punch. I was so grateful!!! :) I had waited a few weeks till Christmas was over to go and order the punch. I actually ordered 2 so I would not ever have to worry about finding another one! LOL My punches arrived this past week and I have been thinking about that card ever since! Today was the day I tried my hand at it....take a look!




I love the look of the wreath on the door and incase your wondering about the shiny gold piece at the bottom....it reminded me of a gold plated kick plate that are on the bottom of doors and I thought the bottom just needed something! I added little gold beads on the wreath that was punched out with the MS Fern Punch and used a bigger gold bead for the door knob. Lastly, I added a scrap piece of gold metallic ribbon and my sentiment and called it down!
What do you think of it? I love it! And the best part is...it did not take long to make!

Another Christmas card for my pile! :)

Oh Wendy, I'm so glad you got your punches! Your card is so pretty, and I LOVE the brass kick plate you added! I wondered for some time who was going to be the first to add one and ding ding ding! Apparently it's you! Nice job!!

Don't you just love that punch? Just recently, I too, purchased this punch. Your wreath idea is fantastic and the card if fabulous. TFS.

How adorable!! I love this card. I could never find that punch either, so I had to settle for a similar punch from another company. I still like this fern sprig better. This is another one of your cards that took my breath away!

Wow:) How adorable is that. Nan and I thought we may be able to get a notebook covering and wreath making class now...................

Keep up the great work.
