Slimline Holiday Wreath Door with Gingers

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a tall slimline card!  This is only the second one I've made in this size (3.5 x 8.5"), so I'm slowly trying different sizes (very slowly LOL).  

I fell in love with this wreath stamp from Your Next Stamp Holiday Wreaths because of the gingerbreads and other holiday cookies!  I coloured the image with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape.  The sentiment banner is from the same stamp set, and I added some shadows with a light grey marker..

The door is a digital from Stamp On It called Door Border by Eureka Stamps.  I digitally made it a bit wider than the original design to accommodate the wreath but kept the height unchanged.  I printed the door image on kraft cardstock and then coloured it with markers. The red background is upcycled packaging from Dollarama, which I embossed with a brick pattern (Sizzix Texture Fades).  I had to run it through my Cuttlebug twice as the embossing folder is smaller than the red panel.  

I added a handcut snowbank at the bottom of the door and a sweet snowman (Your Next Stamp Snowflake Kisses), which I coloured with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop him up on foam tape.

Here's a close-up of the wreath; those gingers are so cute!

Hi Kitty! How adorable slimline!!! I can see why you love that gingerbread wreath, it's really sweet, cute and fun! And you coloured it so well!! I always make some smudges when colour little images, but yours are ever just perfect!
The whole design looks adorable with that door, the darling snowman and the banner with the wishes, and I'm so glad to see your embossed upcycled packaging! Wow, it looks really great as it's glossy and make a fabulous contrast with the soft browns of the door and the white snow!! Fabulous card!
See you tomorrow at the Cat Lovers Hop for sure! :D I don't think that I will be able to make a lot of cards, but have already prepared two :)
Sending lot of hugs and warm thoughts on your way dear friend!
