Good Tuesday morning.  The weather here in Florida has been beautiful with low humidity and chilly nights. So the only way I can experience a white Christmas is to create it on my card fronts. My project today was made using the new Impression Obsession Front Door paired with the Wrought Iron Fence and an evergreen wreath and door trim made using the Martha Stewart Branch Punch. The brick background was paper is from the Authentique Classic Christmas pad.

I started by attaching the designer paper to the card base with ATG adhesive.  The door was cut and pieced together using double stick tape and then attached to the card base. I cut the fence sections, applied touches of Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue to the back of each with my finger and attached them on either side of the door.  Once they were secure I trimmed off the excess fence and finished off the edges by attaching  thin strips of black cardstock. I finished the scene by attaching a hand cut piece of cardstock across the ground area in front of the door.

I created my wreath for the door using a 3/4” circle and used just the top three sprigs all the way around.

I decorated the wreath with punched 1/8” circles attached with glossy accents, applied a multi loop bow  and then applied red stickles to the punched circles for sparkle.  Once the stickles was dry I applied light touches of the Crafter’s Pick with an old paint brush and lightly sprinkled with white flower soft.  You can see my step by step and video wreath tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers.

I used full pieces of  branches to arrange an evergreen bough across the top of the door frame and on both sides of the door.  I didn’t use quite as light a touch when I applied the Crafter’s Pick to the branches as I did for the wreath.  I wanted the snow to look full and fluffy.

I applied a fairly significant layer of glue on the ground section with my finger and applied a full layer of flower soft to create a fluffy carpet of snow.

I love the snowy welcoming door scene.  I want to walk right on in.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great day.
