Instructions: My card size is 5 X 7". Make card base out of white cardstock and set aside. Cut a piece of red cardstock to be the next layer. I used an embossing folder called Bricked and ran the red cardstock through my machine to emboss it. Next I took a sponge and added the white ink here and there on the red embossed area to make the brick look a bit worn.  

Stamp and cut out the window frame and the candle element in black ink on white cardstock. I used Memento inks, Northern Pine, Rhubarb Stalk, Bamboo Leaves, Lady Bug and the Dove Blender pen to color the candle and greenery then I used dimensional tape to adhere it to the base of the window.  

Next I stamped the angel and tree in black ink on white cardstock, and colored them using various inks and the Dove Blender Pen.  I cut it out to make it fit behind the window frame and then I used my cotton ball and Tumbled Glass ink to lightly add color to the white cardstock around the image. I just wanted it to have a bit of color and not be a stark white.  

Now die cut out the decorative piece, from white cardstock, to go over the window top and glue it behind the window. Now you are ready to glue the window to the front of the card. Next stamp, color and die cut the sled and use dimensional tape to adhere it to the card front. 

Now just find a sentiment on the paper and fussy cut it to go on the card front.  I rounded the corners and used some ink to distress the edges. Use some more dimensional tape and adhere the sentiment to the card front.
