Heartfelt Creations - Grapevine French Door

 Hi and welcome!!!

I created today's card using the grapes and leaves from the Autumn Wreath Accents stamp and die along with the door from the French Cottage Collection. 

Instructions: To create a top fold 5 x 7” card base, cut two pieces of black cardstock 5 x 7” and 5 x 7 1/2”. Score and fold the 5 x 7 1/2” piece at 1/2” and adhere the two pieces together. Cut gray cardstock 2x at 4 7/8 x 6 7/8” and ink the edges using Distress Oxide Black Soot ink. Cut one piece of sheet 2B from the Seasonal Wreath Paper Collection 4 3/4 x 6 3/4”, emboss using a brick or stone embossing folder and ink the edges with Black Soot ink. Adhere one piece of gray cardstock and the embossed designer paper together using dries clear adhesive and adhere to the card front using dimensional tape. 

Cut designer paper sheet 3B 4 3/4 x 6 3/4”. Cut a piece from sheet 2B measuring 3 3/4 x 5 3/4” and a journal piece from sheet 3A measuring 3 5/8 x 5 3/8”. Ink the edges of all and adhere to the gray cardstock and then adhere to the inside of the card. Stamp ‘Hope your day is as special as you are’ from the Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp Set on the journal page in Tuxedo Black ink. 

Stamp the door image from the French Doorway Cling Stamp Set on thick white cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink, color using Stampin’ Blends markers, diecut with coordinating die, ink the edges with Black Soot ink and adhere the frame to the card front using foam strips. Adhere the door using dries clear adhesive. Add silver Wink of Stella to the door hinges, the door knocker, and the doorknob.

Stamp the grape leaves 7x and grapes 5x from the Autumn Wreath Accents on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Archival Olive and Deep Purple inks. Color the leaves using Olive and Vivid Chartreuse inks and color the grapes using the Deep Purple ink. Diecut using the coordinating dies, shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Nida Tanweer Magic Glitter Powder. Adhere around the top of the door using hot glue. 

To finish the card, cut the sentiment from Sheet 6A of the Seasonal Wreath Paper Collection, ink the edges, shape and adhere under the door using dries clear adhesive.
