Holiday Inspiration

I love the simple wreath with a burlap bow that I have on my front door and thought how lovely it would look on a holiday card. That was my inspiration for today's project.

I used the Passage Door die to create a folded card from Kraft cardstock. Then I cut another door from Kraft-Core cardstock, distressed with sandpaper, added a door knob and attached it to the front of the card. For the wreath I used the Festive Greenery die to cut some pine branches from Kraft-Core cardstock, distressed with sandpaper, attached branches to a circle base, added glitter for snow and topped it of with a bow. Love that little bit of sparkle!

For the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Mini Handwritten Holidays set on a piece of patterned paper and attached it to the card. Oh what fun!

I'm entering this in the Holiday Cards Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp. Check out the Monday Challenge Blog for all the details and some amazing art by the design team. Thanks for stopping by!
