Christmas Stamp Camp

I have to say that I've been neglecting my blog for a few weeks.  No excuse other than I've been busy with the kids.  As with other things, I need to discipline myself to regularly contribute to my blog...Over the last few months I've been designing cards for three different stamp camps.  This card is one of the cards that we're making at my Christmas Stamp Camp.


Inspiration for this card came from Sharon Field.  She designed a card last November that had a door for the focal point.  She gave credit to Rosemary Diehl.  I wanted to do something a little different, yet keep it simple.  I started with Real Red card stock for my door and used a sponge dauber to add Frost White shimmer paint to the edges of the trim.  My door handle is a jumbo brad.  The wreath stamp comes from the Welcome Christmas stamp set.  I inked the stamp with Always Artichoke and stamped it onto Old Olive card stock, then cut it out.  The wreath was finished off by coloring the berries with a Real Red marker then adding Dazzling Diamonds and a white taffeta bow.
