Autumn Door

This week at Pile It On, we're "piling on" the theme of Leaves. Our sponsor is Doodle Pantry, so I used their Autumn Star digi stamp pack:
I used Memory Box's Small Madison Window die for the door window, and the embossed/cut-out pieces for the bottom of the door. This worked so well on a 3 x 6 card base (Core'dinations shiny white). I inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. The "knob" is a hitch fastener from Tim Holtz Idea-ology.

The stars are separate layers, and I printed the bow separately on red mulberry paper. The image is colored with Copics, and I used Aida cloth and blender solution to texture the stars. The berry-bits are colored with Sakura gel & glaze pens.

The leaves on the door & inside the card were cut on my Bigshot with Tim Holtz Alterations' Fall Garland die from paper covered with Rolo foil.
