Door Card with Christmas Wreath

This is a card I have done using the Punched Christmas Wreath.  

I have decorated the wreath with red crystals and a gold bow.  I have used 4 different green papers to make the wreath. The door was made by making 4 panels, each with 3 layers glued on top of each other, slightly smaller than the one below.  The top one I have scored a rectangle about 3mm in from the edge to make it look like bevelled. The panels were then glued on the base card, two at the top and two at the bottom, the base has  two lines each side scored.  

I have made a letter slot with two rectangles of gold paper, one with a rectangle cut out of the middle and mounted on the top of the other one.  I made a letter with handwritten 'Merry Christmas' and a stamp drawn on it.  I cut the corner off, so that it looked like it was poking out.  The plate behind the doorknob was the part that was cut out of the rectangle post slot.  I rounded the edges and made a keyhole with a small hole punch and cut a slit underneath it.  The door know was a fancy plastic button embellishment I had that I cut the button shaft off of it. 

This is another colour version of the same card.
