Cricut Christmas Door Card 12 Days of Christmas DAY THREE GIVE AWAY

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.  Ha Ha…all around the All Around Sentiment stamp.  I’m so punny.  😛

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.
