So what I wanted to show you today is a card I made in the shape of a door complete with measurements. First thing I did was find a wreath digital stamp from my extensive digi file, that I liked, printed it out and colored it in with my Copic Markers. If you are the designer of this wreath please let me know so I can give you credit.
After I had it all colored in, I added glossy accents to the berries and cut it out. I then colored another one of the ribbons and cut that out. I used pop dots to elevate the second ribbon to give it some dimension. Now for someone who used to design architectural interiors (pre-Mommyhood) the next part was really fun for me. On a piece of graph paper I drew out a door and used the wreath to guide me in the sizing.
Once I had the door drawn out I added the measurements. As you can see below I was pretty detailed with the measurements. Its the drafting training coming out. You won't need to be this detailed in your drawings. I find it helps when I do clean and simple projects though to have all the measurements pre-drawn.
I put the door panels together and then used a brad as a door knob. I then added the wreath using more pop dots. I cut the dots in half so they would be half as tall as usual. I didn't want to give it too much height. I then added the card front to the card base and it was done!
This is how it looks completed.
