I love the sight of Christmas trees peeking through windows, and Stampin’ Up! has products for creating that scene. This is a clean & simple card that would be fairly easy to duplicate.
The Window Flower Box Dies were used to cut the window pane and shutters from Thick Basic White Cardstock, and the hinges from Gray Granite Cardstock.
I matched the hinges to the Gray Granite card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. To make the “house” for the window, I used a Brick stamp from the Welcoming Window Stamp Set, stamping it in Gray granite Ink three times on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
The tree was made with Shaded Spruce Cardstock and the Pine Tree Punch. First, I sliced the tree in half. Second, I glued it to the back of the window pane. Third, I glued the window pane in place. Fourth, I glued the shutters next to the window pane. Fifth, I glued the hinges in place.
“Merry Christmas” is from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set. I confess, I did a bit of surgery on the die, because I really needed this small sentiment. After cutting the stamp apart, I stamped it in Gray Granite Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and used a Window Box Die for cutting. The die comes with texture; isn’t it cute?
My spot of Real Red was provided by the sweet little bird from the Beautiful Trees Die Set.
