Happy May! I love gazing out my window and seeing all the pretty spring blooms appear in my garden. I thought this would be a perfect time to share how to create a window card. I like to dress up my window card in layers by using elements on the outside, in-between and the inside of the card:
Supplies: My Minds Eye pattern paper; Diecuts- Sizzix, My Favourite Things,Memory Box die; BasicGrey chipboard
a. Start with a card base of 6 x 10 inches and fold in half. Cut out pattern paper measuring 6 x 5 inches. For the window shape I use a Sizzix frame die.
b. Position the pattern paper over the card front and use remove-able tape to attach together (I use washi tape). Roll the front of the card/pattern paper together through the Sizzix die to create the window.
c. You have 3 surfaces to embellish- the outside front of the card, in-between to suspend elements, and the inside of the card.
e. The dress-form, flower border, and sentiments are placed on the outside of the card, the banners and lace are adhered in between the layers, and finally the inside of the card is also embellished.
