Christmas Door

It's Merry Monday time again!

Can you believe it's the last day of October?!!!

Christmas will be her before we know it!

The challenge this week was my choice...
I always put a wreath on my front door.

How do you decorate your door?

This wreath was die cut then stamped and adhered to a die cut piece of fun foam for dimension.

The textured "door" was a snippet of core'dinations paper (I love the texture and creamy color).
I scored the paper at 1" increments to make it look more like a door.
My camera doesn't seem to see the scoring.

My wreath was die cut and stamped on a snippet so I'm off to
Pixie's Snippet Playground

I'm running late for Rudolph Days at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo!
I think this challenge is still open.

I hope you'll show us a sample of how you decorate you door at 
Christmas (or how you'd like to), and join us at

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Hi Bonnie,

Great idea the foam to make it look so lovely.
Wonderful lixurious bow too.
I decorate my door with a wooden wreath with Mr and Mrs Snowman on it.
Can't wait till December to put it up again.

Love the layering of colours in the wreath! And what a fabulous bow!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

This is a cool wreath card. Your wreath has a nice elegant look to it especially with that bow.

I may have embellish a bit for this one. I decorate my door with a chili pepper wreath that lights up. Although this year I suspect that wreath won't work on the door. But a wreath! That's the important part.
