Christmas Window


Good morning everyone!  Can you believe it's Friday already?  This morning I want to share another card I made for Heartfelt Creations.

 My Card size is 5 X 7 and done on a red card stock base.  I used a piece of Canson watercolor paper and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Madison embossing folder and then used a craft knife to cut out parts of the embossed area to show the red card stock underneath.  It has been some time since I have done this cutting technique and I must say, It takes a very steady hand and you need to practice.  I don't know if I will be trying this again.  My hands just don't want to cooperate.  I wove ribbon and made the wreath and then I stamped the sentiment on Canson watercolor paper and cut it out using  Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three.
I taped it down making it bow out some and give the card a little dimension.

I was very pleased with how this card turned out.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Well that is about it for me this morning!  Have a wonderful weekend and remember no matter where you wind up or what you are doing...take a moment and "Breathe".

Supplies:  HCPC 3428 Script Christmas Tree PreCut Set, Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three, Cuttlebug Madison embossing folder, red and green ribbon, Scor-Tape, Zip Dry Glue, craft knife, Memento ink, red card stock and Canson watercolor paper

This is just beautiful! I am with you, I don't think my stubby fingers are up to this type of cutting. But, the result is beautiful.

Beautiful card and I just got that folder yesterday, I may have to try this and see, my hands aren't very steady either. LOL

The work you did on this is amazing. It looks like a professionally die cut embossed folder. That wreath is so cute. I love all the red and white with the pop of green. Gorgeous.

Hi, I saw your link on Cards Calligraphy- Shaz in Oz. I just had to pop over and see your beautiful card. So glad I did. Love your blog. So much inspiration!

I made several woven ribbon wreaths years ago as gift toppers. Quite frankly had forgotten about that until I saw your lovely card. Thanks for the reminder and all the inspiration.
