A Final Christmas Entry

Here's another entry that I made for the Stampin' Success contest. I really love this card and might make a Halloween version with my grade 2 students. The faux wood technique involves wiping the stamp pad across the paper in the direct to paper technique I used Close to Cocoa cardstock and then wiped the paper with Close to Cocoa, Basic Black, and Chocolate Chip classic ink. Then I wiped it with Whisper White Craft Ink. Then I cut the paper into 1 cm strips and then folded my card to open in the middle. Then I glued on the strips of paper to create doors.
The wreaths were cut from Kiwi Kiss cardstock using my Big Shot, and then stamped with the flower from A Beautiful Thing in Versa Mark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The centre was cut out using the 3/4 inch circle. The Red Ribbon is Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon. The Handles were made by stamping out a circle from Seeing spots, heat embossing it with silver embossing powder and then cutting out the image and popping it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The hinges were made with the tab punch and then trimmed. Next I added the silver brads and then glued the "hinges" on. Finally the sentiment was a rub-on from the Season of Cheer set and I trimmed around the image and then used my corner rounder punch to tidy it up.
