We have been doing a lot of designing with Christmas elements lately to provide some early inspiration for the Christmas season. I love that Nellie's has made scalloped dies as companion dies for the straight lined die-sets. This beautiful set of scalloped circles and straight circles will provide you with lots of opportunities for lovely layering. Below is an easy Christmas door card. The wreath is made from two scalloped circle dies with a straight edge circle die used to cut the centre. The edge of the green cardstock was distressed with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and the two circles have been separated with foam tape. The door panels were cut from specked cardstock, distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink and raised with foam tape. I love the finishing touch of a square brad (or a round brad) for the door handle. The Memory Box Tiny Bow comes in three pieces and makes a sweet dimensional bow (the one used on the card was an old punch which is unavailable). This card works well when you want to create a number of cards very simply and quickly.

You could always add a small Merry Christmas on the bottom right door panel to complete this card for Christmas mailing.
