~Good Tidings and a Red Door~

I envisioned a red door, once I discovered this ODBD set.

My girls attend a class that has a red door...

 Hope they get the meaning! ;)

The 3D gift box door was created with a 4X4 piece.

I stamped this beautiful ODBD door in the middle of it.

I used a blade to cut the door everywhere except the "hinges".

I colored the door with a Copic (it was easier to swipe with the broad head AFTER cutting the door out...I could fold it AWAY from the wall and work quickly).

Then, I scored 1/4" from every edge, then 1/2" also.

Fold it under at those folds and use 1/8" scor-tape on the outermost edge to secure to the card base.

(I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from PTI before securing the door).

I used a small hole punch to create a hole on the door AND "wall".

I have this cool needle that splits in the middle, so you can take something as thick as this thread and string it through. (I wish I knew the name...I bought it blindly...but I'm so grateful for it).

Fun, huh?

It DOES fit in a regular envelope (hand carried, though).

Hope this springs some great ideas in your head~~~~~~

Thanks for stopping in. ;)
