A new monthly challenge began yesterday at House Of Cards. This time you are asked to make a stamped and cut window card. Mynn has a tutorial for you if you're not sure how. I used a die cut to create the window for my front panel. Make sure you choose a die cut that will look good with the sentiment you plan to use. My sentiment is rectangle shaped so a long label die was perfect. Next I stamped flowers and leaves around the cut window and then embossed the panel to add a little more texture.
I distressed the cover of my card base, set the die cut panel over the card to help me determine where to stamp my sentiment and used a stamp-a-majig to get perfect alignment.
To adhere the panel I used adhesive foam tape. It really adds dimension to that window and makes your card look so fussy. I hand trimmed an extra flower and leaves and adhered them inside the die cut window.
So fun right? And score ! Another holiday card done!
