Instructions: To see an up close photo of the colored scene inside click here. Cut a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of pattern paper from Winter's Eve Paper Collection. Adhere it to a 5" x 7" white card base. Die cut a rectangle in the center of the card front using the middle die from Window Frame Die.
Stamp the fireplace image from Winter's Eve Stamp Set with black archival ink on a piece of watercolor cardstock & color it using Gansai Tambi Watercolors & Koi Waterbrush. Trim the edges around the image & adhere it to the inside of the card so that it is aligned with the window on the card front.
Stamp the window from Window Frame Stamp Set with black archival ink on a piece of white cardstock & die cut it using matching dies from Window Frame Die. Ink it lightly with Hickory Smoke distress ink. Die cut 1 more piece of the window & adhere them together. Align it with the window opening on the card front & glue it down.
Die cut two pieces of both decorative dies from Window Box Elements Die. Adhere the similar die cuts together to make a thicker piece. Take the die cut that will be on the sides of the window & cut it lengthwise. Adhere all 3 pieces as shown.
Die cut one more piece of the ornamental die that was used on the sides of the window & trim the sides to get the straight edges as shown. Fussy cut a piece of green patterned paper from Winter's Eve Paper Collection to layer behind the die cut piece. Cut the sentiment from the same paper collection & adhere it on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock. Adhere this to the die cut using foam adhesive. Adhere this piece to the card base below the window. Add some pearls to the die cuts for finishing touch.
