For my long, tall red door, I colored it w/ markers and a water brush then used a Spellbinders square die and resized it to fit around my door. Since it’s not a standard or long rectangle size, this was the only way I could work it. I added a narrow dk red mat and some stickles on the pine boughs and wreath. The sentiment was stamped twice and I die cut them w/ a Ribbon Tag Trio 3, but turned and cut them in opposite directions. I used the one w/ the top curve above the door and the bottom curve below the door. The three little dots were leftovers after I used the Banners 2 for the trim and tassels. The scallop edge at the bottom is also a leftover from the same cutting. The finished card measures 4.25 x 9 and will fit nicely in a #10 business size envelope. The hardest part of this card was finding a layout for this long, tall card that would work w/ this dp! I only had this dp in a 6×6 pad so nothing was long enough. So this was my attempt to get the much shorter paper to fit a longer card! I think the little border strips really helped it out.
