Merry Monday ~ Door Decoration

I love swags on doors and Bonnie, Our Merry Maker, for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge has asked for our card to have a door decoration on it!
I remember one year early in my marriage, I made a swag and attached a LOT of really cute little Christmas ornaments to it, I was so proud of that swag and thought it looked awesome.
Well, apparently someone else did too, because the next morning it was missing from my door front!!
I love houses that have a red door, it makes such a huge impact and an awesome pop of color!  So I pulled out some Altenew woodgrain white paper and sponged on some pure poppy red ink for my door face!
These are the stamps I used:
WPlus9 Holday Boughs
PTI Spruce & Sprigs
PTI Tinsel & Tags Sprig Stamp set (bough)
Memory Box: A Batch of Gingerbread
Lil' Inkers:  Holly Jolly sentiment set
 

I hope you will join me and the rest of the team with this door decoration
Heart Hugs, friends!

  3. I love your swag, Colleen! I made swags the first Christmas we were married. They were little ones and inside the house since we didn't have a Christmas tree. You have created a gorgeous swag! Hope nobody takes this one! Have a great week!

  9. Darling swag for your door, Colleen! Sorry you lost an early swag to a thief! Sad we have to keep the good stuff inside for only ourselves to see!

  10. Ohhhh, I love that wood grain paper with your red sponging! We generally put a swag on our door, but I made a wreath for the challenge. I love all the gingerbread men and the cute bow on yours!

  11. Oh, what a terrible story about your homemade swag. I had a neighbor lose a bundled of dried corn off her gate. She was convinced it was a human thief, I was pretty sure it was the raccoon who had been lurking around. I don't suppose a raccoon made off with your swag. Anyway, to your card which is quite awesome. That's an elaborate swag--keep an eye on it so no one walks off with it!
