Swing Easel Card for Fancy Fold Friday - Shut the Door!

Seeing as my Swing Easel Card Tutorial  has proven SO popular for the last 2 weeks. (actually quickly shooting up to no 6 in my All Time Top 10 posts)  I thought I would have a go at another variant.... re-sized to suit my favourite Hearth & Home dies.
So here you have one resized with a narrower centre panel for the perfect front door to swing open and shut! (well more like up and down really!!).
My favourite trio of stamps and matching dies used again - Hearth & Home, Festive Fireside/ Fireplace and Peaceful Pines
And the gorgeous NOEL Label Bracket from a new Autumn Winter Catalogue hostess stamp - Antique Tags. Love this one!
The trees are dressed with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer behind the die cut holes to the left - and stamped with Versamark/Heat & Stick  plus Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the right... wish I had gone red - but hey - next time!
Now I know that a lot of you will be surprised to a Real Red front door on here.... but I will let you into a secret - last year all my ladies changed my white front doors to bright red ones for their Christmas cards.... so I thought I had better brighten things up a bit for them this year.... But don't worry - I am sure my next front door share will be white....
And last - but not least - spot the boughs under the NOEL tag - that is just a snippety snip of the Festive Fireside/Fireplace boughs and mount either side...
