Paper Players 68

DSCF8785

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Today, Lesley has a CAS Paper Players challenge for us! (I always miss that “CAS” part!)  Luckily, I didn’t have much time so I DID make a CAS one!  Here’s the challenge:

PP68

And here’s my card:

PP68-LeAnne

I have to tell you, I was totally inspired by Lauri’s card that she made here for my musical challenge a couple weeks ago!  I have seen these cards made before, but I thought this one translated into a nice CAS card.  I made my wreath from Garden Green Patterns DP by punching a circle first with my 1 3/8” circle punch, then centering the scallop punch over the hole—much easier that way.  I did that twice, layered and sponged the edges, added my little tag & glittery bird, and I was done!  The panels of the door are actually three layers of cardstock….I wanted them to be raised, but not with dimensionals.  I trimmed my actual card down a little to fit the panels better.

Here’s a view of the inside, using Christmas Greetings:

My little apple eater is being baptized today, so hopefully we’ll have some pictures to share later!  Did your children eat apples with the skins on when they were this age?  I know I didn’t!  I am very careful to watch her for choking, but she chows down on these!

Beautiful door with a lovely wreath! So welcoming and friendly :)

Marisa said...

Great card! Love the pop of green and red against all the white. I can't actually recall if I had the skin on or off...think it was on and never had an issue. Great fruit for them to enjoy :)

LeAnne - ADORABLE - Have to CASE for sure. I know my CCC will enjoy doing this card. Your style is so right on with my taste! The Red glitter bird is the best!

LeAnne,

I have never seen a front door card and yours is wonderful. I like that you made three layers of the door panels to raise them up. Makes them look real. And I like your scalloped wreath the way you did it. Very clever of you!

Blessings, Martha

I love this! So cute!

Carol L said...

OK, a previous card of yours pushed me over the edge into buying the tiny tag punch, and now it looks like I need the tiny tag stamps too :) This is GORGEOUS!! I'm so going to have to case this one!!!
And no - my children wouldn't eat apple skins. My daughter used to peel grapes! It took her an hour to eat 12!! LOL

Cindy Hall said...

What a smart way to do the wreath. This is the nicest "front door" card I've seen. I love the little birdie on the wreath! Super sweet. TFS

Ding dong! This little door is full of holiday cheer, especially with the sweet details you added. Speaking of sweet...little miss is certainly enjoying those apples, eh. She's adorable! :)
