Open Door Christmas Card

 Thank goodness for dies especially ones that coordinate with stamps.  I probably wouldn't have attempted these cards for my cat loving boys if I had to fussy cut everything. The door front started with the Lawn Fawn door and wreath die sets. I stamped the Hero Arts words with white ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After double stick taping the door down, I carefully used a craft knife to cut out the door opening before adding the wreath, door mat and door knob.
This card is for my son who has a pair of gray sister cats.  I imagine they would love saimin if they were allowed to eat it.
 For my other son who owns two young cats, I tried to find two cat images from the Mama Elephant stamp set that could be colored to resemble his cats. None of the cats are chubby, but skinny cats are not as cute....LOL!
I think the Mama Elephant (Nom Nom kitties) cat set and the Lawn Fawn (Christmas dreams) sets work well together even though they were not designed to match.  I was pleased to be able to craft a special card for each son.  I hope your crafting is going well and your holiday projects will get done on time....if not, we'll start earlier next year, right...wink!wink!... I will....promise!
