Instructions: To see the inside pages of this layered card click here. Construct 5 X 7" layered card then cut designer paper for each side of each page (sponge edges of all pages). The first page is the largest oval and they get smaller as you go. For the first page, in order for the window frame to fit, you need to cut the designer paper with a rectangle (large enough for the window) a bit smaller than the opening. Before gluing front piece of designer paper, glue a piece of ribbon about 8 or 9" hanging over the edge, then glue your "cover" page on. On each oval opening I also cut an oval frame from designer paper using two oval dies to create the frame.
Stamp and die cut the window from white cardstock using black ink on white cardstock. Die cut Window Box Elements (decorative pieces) on white cardstock and cut the larger decorative piece in half lengthwise (these will be the shutters). Glue window, shutters and topper onto the front cover.
Stamp, die cut and color holly and cardinal (several pieces are used throughout) using black ink on white cardstock, coloring with Copic Markers, form slightly then add the Crystal Clear glitter. Stamp, die cut and color the sled, color using Copic Markers add some bakers twine as a pull rope. Pop the sled up against the "wall" next to the window. Add the holly and cardinal to the left side of the cover. Glue the window to the opening.
Page 1, cut the oval frame from designer paper and glue to page. Add a holly garland on top of both window and fussy cut the little girl (she is looking at the tree!). Die cut four Fleur and Border Pockets onto white cardstock add these double pockets at the bottom of both pages. Stamp "Twas the night before Christmas" using black ink. Die cut with Spellbinders A2 Rectangles adding a mat behind it.
Page 2, this is just designer paper, oval frame and poinsettias (stamp, die cut and sponge poinsettias with Angle Pink then form flowers and add Prills). This page also has the Christmas tree in the oval and poinsettias also a little sentiment "ticket".
Page 3, has an oval frame alone with Holly & Berries in two corners. Die cut Regal borders from white cardstock and adhere one on each side. Stamp fireplace image using black ink on white cardstock. Diecut with oval die and color with Copic markers. Add oval frame on top of this image.
Page 4, die cut a double Blossom Corner from white cardstock and the last page has a single Blossom corner. Both the double and single are pockets, only add glue to 3 sides. Die cut tags from designer paper using the luggage and tags die, add bakers twine. Cut a panel of your choice to tuck into the pocket. Add a poinsettia to the top right.
The back cover has another piece of ribbon glued between layers allowing you to tie the "book" closed. Add Nuvo Carnation Pink drops throughout book as shown on die cuts. Allow to dry.
