This card measures 4.25"x5.5" and the little door actually opens to reveal the sentiment!

I cut out the door with my X-acto knife and layered a white cardstock underneath and stamped my sentiment so that it would show when the door was open. I did some straight and zig-zag stitching and distressed and inked all the edges to give it a shabby chic look.

Here's a close up of the sweet roses that I made. I layered 3-5 small dies to make them look like buds. I then distressed them with ink and added some stickles. I made a cluster with leaves, a heart die with liquid pearl drops and a pink lace knot.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Fold a 8.5”x11” light brown cardstock in half and cut that in half for your card base. Trim a white cardstock to 4.25”x5.5” and trim the door part of the pattern paper to 4”x5.25”. With a X-acto knife, cut the door so that it opens to the left. Stamp the swirl from the HCPC 3505 Timeless Rosette PreCut Set on the bottom side of the white cardstock and the sentiment from the Timeless Rosette Precut Set on the center. To make sure that it will show through, place the pattern paper over the cardstock and lightly trace the open door rectangle unto the cardstock. After you stamp your images, erase these lines. Distress these two layers with the Distress-it-all tool and ink the edges of the pattern paper with Vintage Photo distress ink and the Tim Holtz tool. Adhere the pattern paper over the cardstock and machine stitch them together. Adhere these two layers over the background cardstock. Stamp and die cut several flowers from the Open Vintage Floret Precut Set and Mini Vintage Floret Precut Set but only the smallest three sizes. Make two rosebuds with these die cut flowers. Die cut the leaves from the Western Broncos Die and adhere on the bottom left corner of the card. Die cut the small heart from the Timeless Amour Die and add liquid pearl drops to the intersections on the lace. Let it dry. Once dry, arrange the heart and blooms over the leaves. Make a knot with a pink lace and add to the bottom left corner of the cluster. Finally, add stickles to the roses, background pattern paper and the stamped image on the inside.
