Window Wishes Christmas Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed you yesterday however I was busy packing up all my Holiday Retreat Card Kits, products and more for our stamp room … don’t want to forget anything!! On that note, I have a very special card for you today, created by one of the members in the design team I belong to. This card highlights the Window Wishes bundle.

This card was inspired by the sample on page 71 of the July-December Mini catalog…

Measurements: 

  • Card Base: Thick Basic White 4 ¼ x 11, score at 5 ½.
  • Cardstock #2: Window with Basic White 3 x 4 ¼, scraps
  • Designer Paper #1:  Festive Foils 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Storybook Gnomes scrap 2 ½ x 3 ¾

Begin by adhering the Festive Foils Designer Paper to the front of the card base. Using the Brick & Mortar embossing folder, emboss your white cardstock and then die cut it using the Window dies. Cut the Storybook Gnomes piece with the window frame in order to get the insert.

Stamp the tree in Early Espresso on the designer paper.  Stamp the house in Real Red and the roof in Soft Suede ink on Basic White scraps.  Cut these out with the corresponding dies and glue to the designer paper.  Using the piece of white that you saved cut a strip along the bottom for the snow and add.

Stamp in Real Red the saying over the top of the window frame. Turn the frame over and the designer paper.  Use scotch tape to tape the pieces together.  Turn back over to the front and glue in the window insert piece.

Use 2 of the Wonderful Snowflakes to add interest to the card front.  Cut the snowflakes in half.  Add in places so that they will be around the window.  You’ll have one of the halves left over.  I taped them in place under where the window will be.  Use the window to help determine placement before you adhere the window.

Add the window to the center of the card with dimensionals. Make a bow of Linen Thread.  Add to the card with a glue dot.

Stamp Merry Wishes in Real Red on a Basic White scrap.  Trim on each side of the saying.  Make a notch at one end using Paper Snips.  Cut up in the middle of the end. Now cut from each corner to the top of the middle cut.  Add dimensionals to the back of the label.  I used some of the side of the pack with the smaller dimensionals.  Do not put any right at the very end.  Put that part over the bow so all will lay straight.

Send to someone special for Christmas! Thanks for stopping by today ~
