Today I’m sharing a Window Wishes Christmas card. Is it too early for Christmas? In my opinion it’s never too early for Christmas! The earlier you get started, the less you need to do as we get closer to the holidays when things get busy!
- Sweet Sorbet: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and 4” x 5-1/4” and ½” x 4”
- Basic White: 4” x 5-1/4” (inside) and 3” x 4”
- Basic Black: ¼” x 3”
- Parakeet Party: 2” x 4”
- Gingham Cottage DSP: Black Gingham 1” x 4”
- Gingham Ribbon: 8”
- Sequins: x6
- Run the 4” x 5-1/4” piece of sweet sorbet cardstock through the die machine using the floral die from the split card dies. Add it to the card front.
- Cut the 3” x 4” piece of white with the window frame die. Use the inside of the shape for the tag on the card. Save the frame for another project.
- Using a blending brush and pool party ink add a bit of colour to the center of the tag.
- Stamp two wreaths using parakeet party onto the parakeet party card stock and die cut them with the coordinating die.
- Add the wreath to the center of the tag using dimensionals.
- Stamp ‘Merry Wishes’ using memento ink onto the scrap of white leftover. Trim to fit and angle cut the ends.
- Add the strip of black cardstock behind the greeting and pop it up using dimensionals.
- Add tag to the card front.
- Tie a bow from the gingham ribbon. Add it to the tag.
- Add sequins as desired.
- For the inside of the card – add the narrow strip of sweet sorbet to the back of the gingham dsp and add that to the top of the 4” x 5-1/4” piece of white.
- Stamp greeting using memento and add second wreath to the upper left.
- Add this layer to the inside of the card.
