Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We worked... the whole thing. Hee! Hee! Oh well... such is life anymore. We are really looking forward to Christmas and a little down time. So, today, I have my latest DT project for My Craft Spot. Hope you like it! This week's challenge is to make a Window Christmas Card. I didn't have much time to work on this with the craziness of the holiday, but I was pretty happy with the way that it turned out.
For the front, I used stamps from My Craft Spot out of this year's holiday collections. I stamped Merry Christmas on a label shape, used a branch punch to add a little green around the label shape and put it on top of the window. The window cut is from the Christmas-Noel Solutions cartridge. I wanted it to look like the outside of a house, so I used white textured card stock and cut out a bunch of border shapes from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art. I inked the edges in brown and then added them one strip at a time, overlapping, so that it looked like siding.
I used glitter glue on the tips of the siding to make it look like a little snow. I also added it to the panes of the window. Since the window is on the inside of the card, I cut everything twice so that I could duplicate it on the inside of the card.
I stamped the card on the inside with My Craft Spot stamps as well. I cut the Mrs. Clause from the Santa's Village Imagine Cartridge. I took some Christmas paper that I thought looked like wallpaper. I also used a wood grain paper on the bottom 2 inches. I separated them with a 1/2 inch strip of white paper, inked, and I repeated this on the top to look like chair rail and crown molding. I then used white seam binding ribbon from My Craft Spot and created a valance on the window. I simply used a strip of ATG tape and gathered the ribbon along the top. Very easy to do.
