I loved the holly wreath in this set, and wanted to hang it on my door:

I am thrilled to remove the project picture and replace it with this:


I created a 6-panel door using S4-142 Long Classic Rectangle LG #2 (the smallest is #1) to make four of the panels, and S4-128 Classic Squares SM #3 for the top pieces.  I inked the edges and embossed lines with Distress Antique Linen ink, and adhered the panels with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L 3D Foam Squares, to give them more dimension. The door knob is a glitter brad from Creative Impressions, and it’s on the smallest die cut from S4- 283 2010 Heirloom Ornaments. All paper is from Worldwin.

The inside has “Merry Christmas” stamped on S5-025 Labels Seventeen, and layered onto S4-301 Labels Sixteen.


Taking a closer look at the wreath, you can see that it has three layers.  I stamped it three times and colored them with Copic atyou Spica pens, using Lipstick for the berries and Olive and Melon for the holly leaves.  I hand cut and layered with 3D Foam Squares.

Pictures just don’t capture the glittery delight of the pens, but belive me, its there! 

Thanks for looking!  Enjoy the blog hop and don’t forget to enter to win on the Flouishes Blog!
