#TBT Beautiful Door Wreath Card

We have been truly blessed to have Beth as a part of our Design Team here at A Jillian Vance Design.
This is a Throwback Thursday post she did for us last year and I am still in love with this card!

We are honored to have Guest Designer Beth Pingry with us! We met Beth at our first CHA in 2011 in Chicago! and to have her guest design for US ~ WOW is all I can say! So take it away Beth . . .

Welcome, and grab a cookie! I'm very excited to be guest designing for A Jillian Vance Design this month! Today I'm working with their Wreath of Hope stamp and die set, along with the Hope Pink Ink stamp. I had been asked to make something pink to go along with breast cancer awareness.
Here's what I made:
Beth Pingry Pink Door Card
The wreath image made me think of a door, and if you remember, I made some door cards a while ago. This is another take on that theme.
I simple cut the panels, stacked them and used Thin 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to add them to the card front. I inked them lightly for a little more visual depth. The keyhole has been in my stash for some time, by Melissa Frances (who is a breast cancer survivor!). The door knob is a brad.
I stamped the Wreath of Hope stamp onto white cardstock, then colored it in with Copic Markers. A simple bow finished the front of the card.
BethPingry-PinkDoor-2For the inside, I stamped the Hope Pink Ink stamp, then colored in the heart and some of the words. I layered that panel on kraft cardstock, and used Pink Photo Corners to add some more flair.
Beth Pingry Pink Door Card 3Here's a top view of the card, you can see that the Thin 3D Foam Squares give just a bit of height without overdoing it (1mm to be exact). I stacked two regular sized 3D Foam Squares so that the wreath had additional "lift".

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® donates a portion of the sales of their pink products to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Thank you, A Jillian Vance Design, for this wonderful opportunity to work with your products! You normally find me at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, where I am Media Director and Design Team Coordinator.
