Christmas Door

I've been thinking about what stamp set inspired me for this week's Curtain Call challenge. I've been wanting to try a wreath with gathered ribbon, so I sat down this evening and started playing with the Concord Crush stitched-poly ribbon. I pulled a few threads from the end of the ribbon to gather; this is called ruching.

The rest of the card fell into place once I had the wreath.

I did break down and use a glue gun to get my wreath stuck very well to a donut of cardstock. You can see how I created panels on the door with a scoring blade.

And I thought this card could also fit into the Stampin' Celebration and SU-Only Clean & Simple (CAS) challenges for this week.

Stamps: Warmest Regards; Paper: Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Concord Crush, Very Vanilla; Ink: Concord Crush; Accessories: Concord Crush ribbon, Basic Gray ribbon, Circle punches, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals.

Edit to add: This card won Top 5 Show Stopper at Curtain Call. Yippee and thanks!

Thanks for stopping by!
