Home ~Scrap with V tutorial~

Hey guys...this is my tutorial post day for Scrap with V. Hope you like....

I started with a die cut door. You can make something yourself and cut "window's out but really this will be so much easier with some kind of electronic die cut machine so it does the work for you. This photo shows the card base (behind) the front panel with all the detail cuts and also the other layers (green).

On the front panel I cut out the inside piece to fit the green layer. Added all the dimension foam.

And then adhered the solid piece which will be flat onto the card base, but was easier to line up by putting it here instead of on the card base.

And a dimensional view of the 2 panels put together.

I wanted to add something special to this so I will add a wreathe. Start with cutting a circle to fit the size you would like. Then punch a ton of leaves in at least 3 to 5 colors. The more variation, the better it looks. Run a circle of glue, a small line at a time and start laying the branches together.

And here is the finished card. I added a bow to the top to "hold" the wreathe on the door and added a hand made sign.

And a close up of the wreathe. I used a small piece of twine and cut 2 pieces. One adhered to the inside panel and one adhered to the wreathe itself. That and it looks more dimensional. Then I layered pearls (or eggs) into the nest, 2 large against the back panel and a smaller sitting on top. Last small detail is adding some Glossy Accents or clear dimensional glue to the door knob.

This ended up such a warm and inviting card, perfect to give my sister when she moves into her new home! If it ever happens, they are trying to buy a short sale and its been nothing but problems so far. But still keeping my fingers crossed for her and her family!
