Front door Christmas card

This is an A4 landscape card. The card is matt and layered with red and white embossed card. The embossed card is brickwork and dotty.

The door, window, curtains and estate fence are all Memory Box dies. The snowman and lamp are Marianne dies. I have made the wreath by cutting a circle and cutting a hole in the centre to create and ring. I cut greenery with a die and build it up on the ring. I cut small red flowers and completed the wreath with small red bow. 

The lamp will have the house number of the recipient of the card. The scalloped oval will have a personalised message
