Sparkles Christmas Card Challenge #34 which is windows.
I've had my Madison Window die for a couple of months but I have not used it, so today was the day. I bought the Designer Paper from American Crafts - Camping Trails with the window in mind. I wanted to create a horizon of trees. I cut a snowbank in ivory which I placed near the bottom of the window. I cut the window in white and edged it with a Chocolate Chip ink pad. I stamped the greeting in Chocolate Chip on the same card stock and punch it with the SU! Word Window punch. To create the wall for the window I placed some dark brown paper on the bottom of the card. I created the stripes on the top of the card with SU! retired border stamp and CC ink. I found a blue strip of card stock that worked with the blue in the DP and used it over the join of this 2 elements. I mounted my window with 3D foam tape onto by DP element. I created a wreath for the window which was just the right size so that is a keeper. Check out this posting for instructions. I added a small 5 petal punch in the same blue card stock and glued it to the wreath. I placed a round of 3D foam in the centre cross brace of the window to keep it at the same level as the frame. I added a small rhinestone to the centre of the flower just to add a bit of bling.
