Getting a draft despite having weather stripping and a door sweep. How can I fix this?

In an effort to better insulate our home and keep our heating costs down, I've been installing weather stripping around the doors.
The front door already has fairly new weather stripping that is in good shape. It's also got a door sweep to prevent drafts from the bottom. Despite this, I am still getting a noticeable draft when I put my hand near the bottom corner of the door (on the side opposite the hinges).
Why might this be happening, despite already having two stop gaps in place to prevent it and what else can I do to eliminate the draft?
