This is a fun challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD)!!! I love creating (or in this case, following instructions) new folds/techniques to share with others.  I would love to see what other people come up with as well, so I hope you will join in for this fun challenge at Shining the Light challenge, Our Daily Bread Designs.
For more inspiration please visit my wonderfully talented dt sisters:
Jan Marie Ennenga, Diana Nguyen,
Cheryl Scrivens (at her NEW blog), DJ Rants, and Chris Olsen (our resident Dirty Dozen girl)
To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click HERE.  You have until December 15th to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamp but if you have any ODBD stamps, we would love to see you use them.  If you participate, you have a chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps).   We would love to see your creations!!
For this card I used The Ornate Borders and Flowers die set and coordinating stamp set; The Chickadee Ornament stamp set; the Christmas paper pack and the Scripture Collection 9 set, all from ODBD.
I sewed real lace on top (you can also use a border punch for that part) and added my secret door under the middle panel (a fun place to add a special sentiment or your own hand written message).
The sprigs of greenery are from a Martha Stewart punch and the pine cone was made by a scallop circle die.
The pine cone tutorial can be found HERE.
 The instructions for this card can be found HERE.
