Door cutting Die Set - Polkadoodles Crafting

There has been lots of excitement in my craft room this week with the arrival of Nikky's lovely brand new dies
Today I am sharing with you a little Christmas card using the lovely
versatile collection

You actually get 4 dies in this set an absolute steal at £5.99
You can literally make so much from this set placing windows where you like, maybe you don't want windows , you could turn them into panels?
I knew in my head the type of door I wanted to create but as I was using the die cuts I could see so much more fun to had with these beauties!
Did you see my blog yesterday ? Where I used the Super Sprigs die?
(find my post here if you missed it)
Well I have used it again on my door card - more about that in a bit.
I matted up a 6x6 card blank with some lovely red card stock cut at 5.5 x 5.5 ( cutting the letterbox and handle in the same)  then using some white hopsack cardstock (new from Papermill Direct = Lush) 
I added some vellum for the windows
and using Memento Love Letter ink stamped the number and sentiment
As I wanted the door to open I place a tiny white pearl in the handle center
I added the fun little robin from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun

Behind the door is a lovely tree from Frosted Winter Collection
And on the door front I have added a little wreath, which has been cut using the
cut onto lovely sparkly card
A few red festive berries using liquid pearls
How cute is that!
Thank you for looking
