Door To Door...

Welcome to the Papertrey Ink group blog post featuring a new stamp set and dies called Door to Door! This set is so much fun to play around with. Included are stamps for all kinds of occasions and dies to add neat accessories- like banners, urns, wreaths, pumpkins, flowers, ETC!

I used the set for Christmas and create an interactive holiday gift card, complete with bow for hanging on the tree. I love to hang my gift cards on the tree, so they don't get lost under the tree with all of the presents.

There is a little die that lets you create these open doors to create an interactive piece to your card!
When the doors open, the inside is decorated with the stamp set, and I wrote a to/from inside for the recipient.

I'll show you a little bit about how I created this!
The first thing I did was cut the doors out with the door die on white cardstock. Then stamped the doors, roof and urns.

Next, I stamped the greenery and chalked in parts of the card with brown chalk. I colored the little dots on the greenery with a red marker.

I cut out the banner die, stamped the banner and colored it in, then stamped the saying and added it to my door.
I had to cut the banner in the center where the doors open. Or you could put the banner up higher, like I did here on my sample. Oops, I see that I stamped my doors upside down. :)
I trimmed this piece down and placed it on a folded piece of new Holiday Flourishes & Swirls patterned  paper pad by Heather Nichols. I sewed up the sides and distressed the edges. Added a ribbon for hanging. To do this, tie a bow, leave one long end to wrap around to the back. Adhere. This creates the loop to hang your card on the tree.

Last, I added pearls for the door knobs and Diamond Dust glitter for a frosty, wintery feel. I punched out a little notch at the top with a circle punch. Don't forget to stamp the wreath inside the doors and add a to/from.
Now add a gift card inside the pocket and hang it on your tree!
