Holiday Welcome....

Hello and Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Today's card is a fun Christmas Card...
I realized yesterday that I really am
WAAYYYY behind in doing my Christmas cards...
I'm a very organized person and I would have almost
ALL my cards done by now.... Not sure
what's up with me... but I will be cranking out some cards
in the next couple of weeks or
I won't have time for my baking....
And well my KIDS LOVE my
baking sooo I must get with the program! :o)
Sooo now that I fell in LOVE
with making Easel Cards....
I thought I would share one with you today!
I hope you all like it... :o)

I'm not gonna lie.... I LOVE how this turned out!
I spent 3 days trying to figure out how I was
gonna do the door... I know that's SAD! :o(
But I wanted it to look just right... and I know
y'all know what I'm talking about! :o)
Anyway I finally got it made and I'm soooo
pleased with how I got it to look like a real door!

Here is the side view to show the Dimension...
I used Transparent Sheets to make the top of the door have
the Window look.... You probably can't tell by the photo's...
but up close & personal it looks like glass... I put the Transparent sheets
in between the shadow cut and the reg. cut...  and the door looks
wood because of the DCWV paper... Sooo glad I seen it in the stack...
Well I hope you all like my Easel Card... I could not be more
happier with how it turned out... :o)
I'll be back tomorrow with a Thanksgiving card!
