Window Card

I saw the idea for this card last December in a card making magazine and have been wanting to make one. My card base is white Bazzill Smooth card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. My patterned papers for the curtains is from the My Minds Eye paper pad Miss Caroline All Dolled Up. Using the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge I cut the scallop at 1" and then trimmed it to fit across my card. My "curtains" are cut at 1 7/8" X 4". I ran the paper through my paper crimper to get that pleated look. For my window I cut the image from the Christmas Solutions cartridge at 3" out of the Mod Squad Cut and Emboss Paper by Core'denations. I then cut the view for my window from a scrap from the Echo Park Summer Paper pad from last summer. I adhered the view down straight to my card. I attached the window with some of the ASI 3D Clear Foam. I also attached the curtains and the valance with some foam tape. To finish it off, I added a couple of bows.

  3. Denise, the "window" is all on the outside of the card. The card opens up and the inside is blank. Hope that helps. If you have more questions let me know.
