Greetings everyone. This is a card I did last week with the Heartfelt Creations Chateau Gateway collection. There are so many ways to create with the stamp sets. This is my version. Here is what I used:
HCPC3441 – Chateau Gateway PreCut Set
HCPC 3449 Door To My Heart PreCut Set
HCD 718 Decorative Chateau Gate
HCD 717 Layered Scalloped Posy Die
Other: Martha Stewart Small Hydrangea Punch, Martha Stewart Deep Edge Iron Fence Punch,Twine, and Pearls, designer paper of choice, black and green cardstock.
I would love if you told me what you imagine lies beyond the door. It you could open and walk through where would you be and what would you see. I would enjoy reading your responses! Have a great day.

Let's see Carol - I would see you in your craft room working like a little elf getting all these magical cards done with an extra seat beside you just for me to watch you create this incredible "magic"! I would also probably swipe a few punches, diecuts, sparkly thingy dingys, etc. while you left for a few minutes to make us tea and scones - you know me being Queen and all. I will bring my Santa bag to fit all my stolen treasures in, so you might wanna think about bolting that door shut and never letting me in!!! BTW, dont' let Benzi in cuz she's known to swipe a few things herself! BEAUTIFUL card Carol and filled with so many exciting details. Love the gate and beautiful floral array!

Wow, Carol, I feel like I have stepped in front of a gate leading to an old refurbished home in Tuscany, and am about to witness beauty like I have never seen before - of course there is a stamp studio, full of all the goodies you use to create your wonderful cards. I will make sure to bring plenty of notepaper and take notes on how you make all these gorgeous cards of yours! TFS with us always!

Being the sign over the door says "Love lives here" I think many things I love would be behind the door...Stamps and dies, dp (stacks and stacks,) novels especially mysteries, DH, red velvet cake, my grandchildren, lots and lots of flowers, and on and on. Your delightful card and question holds many possibilities.

Oh Carol, this is amazing. Such a fresh image and my first thought about what's behind the door... a heart. Of course, another interpretation would be you crafting your gorgeous creation with love and skill!

This is different for you, but it is fabulous! Still a million layers, but they are different. I really like it. Makes me want to go make some sweet little flowers - your cards always do that to me! Hugz!

Fabulous card! Your cards always have the finest details! I image the most spacious, organized craft room filled with friends having a little crafting fest and let's not forget the husband in the kitchen cooking up a feast, so all the girls could stamp instead of cook!!
