Window Card by Deanna M
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.
