Double Door Decorated for Christmas

Here is my Double Door card that I have decorated for Christmas with little wreaths. A long time ago I did a single door card but I like this one much more. I made this with a template which you can get for FREE by clicking on the door drawing below ! If you make one, email me the picture so I can see what you guys come up with!
I used the Christmas Lodge stamp set from the Holiday Mini for the sentiment on the inside. For the door I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and just sponged some of the rectangles to make them darker. The wreaths are using the 1" Circle punch for the inside and then punch the Scallop circle out around it. The back layer is Always Artichoke and the front is Old Olive sponged a little. The bow is made out of 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon and the rhinestones are just colored red with a permanent marker. I used the Jewelry tag punch in So Saffron, cut in half for the door handle backs, and Glimmer Brads for the handles themselves.
The rectangle sizes for the bottom of the door are 1-1/8" x 1-5/8", 1-1/4" x 3/4" and 1" x 1/2". These are on the template also, but just to make it a little easier for you.

Here is what the door looks like undecorated. You can make decorations to go on your door for any holiday or occasion. Make a birthday sign or a skeleton for Halloween! Don't forget to send me the pictures if you come up with something good!

Halloween Class Card #3

Here is the third card that I did with my Halloween Card class earlier this week. I love cards that open different then the standard way. The pumpkins are punched using the Large Oval Punch and the small ones use the 1" Circle Punch. The grass on the bottom is using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.

The main part of this card is 4-1/4" x 9-1/2", scored at 5-1/2".
The white piece is 3" x 6" and scored at 4".
I used Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi card stock for this card, and sponged the pumpkins with Cajun Craze ink.

I got inspiration for this card from this great swap I got from Madeline Gardner, another one of the Green Mountain Stamper ladies from the group I am in. Her card is below.
Thanks Madeline!

Halloween Class Card #2

This is the second card that I did with my stamp ladies last night for our Halloween Card class. I used the large Scallop Circle Die with the Big Shot to cut it out, and then put it back through with the Spider Web embossing folder. I spritzed the card with Platinum Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol in a spray bottle. You can't see it too good in this photo, but it is very shiny and makes the bats really stand out. Everything is out on with Dimensionals and I used the smallest size Pearls for the eyes. I really like how this card came out!

I got the inspiration for this card from this great swap I got from Rachael Ellison, one of the demos in the Green Mountain Stampers group that I am in. Her card is below, I love it!
Thanks Rachael!

Popped Punched Pumpkin

I am holding a Halloween Card Class at my house tonight, and this is one of the cards that we will be doing. We are making three cards, so make sure you check back to see all of them!
For each of the cards that my ladies are doing tonight, I got inspiration from another card. Here is the card that I saw that inspired this one. I thought the pop-out pumpkin was great, but wanted to make my own! I used the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and just punched out 5 pumpkins, folded them in half and taped them together. The card just folds flat on the front to mail in a normal envelope. The DSP that I used is Well Worn, I thought that goes pretty good with the Halloween theme.
