A 3-D Christmas--Part 3

The Door from Sizzix      
 When I saw this door on Shelly Hickox's blog, I just knew I had to have this die!  I am kind of into the doors and windows right now, and I have some fun things to show you this week after Christmas has come and gone.  

As you can see in the above photo, I am still working from the We R Memory Keepers' Yuletide stack.  I love this paper, but I think you already figured that out!  I liked the faux bois side of this paper for the door.  A little Distress ink applied with the blender tool gives dimension to this door.  And here they are with the door open.

The stamped sentiment inside the door was cut with a Spellbinders' die, and the sentiment is from a new Stampin' Up set from the Christmas mini.  I make so many cards each year that it is refreshing to see more words to add to my cards at Christmas. 
 This paper is so wonderful.  When the card is opened, the other side of the green faux bois is a subtle aspen forest in pale gray and white...a perfect background for the Christmas tree pop-up die cut from the green cardstock with snowflakes.  The other card (on the left) is red, white, and green houndstooth check with a nice red faux bois on the inside of the card.  the sentiment inside is again a stamp from Stampin' Up.

Stay tuned to this blog for more in a couple of days.  I am on a roll here!  I can't wait to show you one way to recycle some of your Christmas cards you usually toss into the trash after the holidays.  I have begun looking at the cards we are getting in a different light now!

Don't forget to leave a comment--I love seeing that someone is actually looking at my blog!
