The only thing missing in this photo are some packages of craft supplies at the doorstep. 😉
Today I used my Gypsy and the Cricut Christmas cartridge to create a welded door card. I really like the way it turned out. I cut it large enough to hold a gift card inside. Let me show you some of the things I used. Hey, that wreath is from a stamp in my All Around Sentiments set.
There’s my card when it’s not quite finished. I used that BIC marker to color in the window panes over the door. I’m on a “let’s find a way to use vellum every day” kick, so I was happy to find a real need for it in this project. Coloring the vellum with the yellow BIC marker helped give the look of light shining through the transom. I ran the door through my Cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz Bricked embossing folder.
Here’s a post I wrote about labeling embossing folders. I always do that. 😉
One of the nice things about the BIC markers is that they can write on many surfaces, even glass! That’s cool. 😀
SUPER FUN! I stamped one of my All Around Sentiments stamps into that embossing ink. I really like that brand. It stays wet longer than some others I’ve used. The reason that’s important is because it gives you a chance to pour embossing powder onto it. When the image is damp the powder will stick. In this photo I haven’t yet heated the image. Next, I used a heat tool to warm the powder that is stuck to the image so it would melt. After that I punched out the stamped images using 1″ and 1-1/2″ circle punches. That’s how I made the wreath for the door! 😀
I decided to use the red “wreath” instead of the green one I made. The green embossing powder didn’t match well with the rest of the door. However, I was able to find a nice green from the BIC markers. I used the marker to color all around the embossed sentiment.
Isn’t that little door knob fantastic? I can’t believe the detail. You can even see a little keyhole. I used clear Stickles but they look golden when applied over the brown paper.
Here’s a post I wrote comparing different kinds of Stickles: Distress, Glitz and Regular Stickles Compared.
