I especially like windowpane cards during the holidays.  They are easy to make and look great.  Grab your favorite stamp set and some cardstock from Cutcardstock.com and give one a try!

Supplies needed (those in parentheses are for the elf card):
8 ½” x 11” Pop Tones Cardstock in Grape Jelly, Blue Raspberry, and Hot Fudge (or Red Hot, Sour Apple and Hot Fudge)
8 ½” x 11 Malmero Perle Blanc cardstock
12” x 12” patterned paper of your choice.  I used CTMH (Reminisce “Gift Wrap” )
Stamps – I used CTMH Snow Flurries (Raisin Boat’s North Pole Toymakers and Handy Dandy Helpers)
Inks  - I used CTMH Twilight, Crystal Blue, Spring Iris and Heavenly Blue (Memento’s Tuxedo Black)
Copic Markers (for elf card only)
12” ribbon
Sparkles
3D Foam Tape

 Step One:  Cut the  8 ½” x 11 Pop Tones Blue Raspberry cardstock to 10” x 7 “  Fold in half to create a 5” x 7 “ card.

Step Two:  Cut the 12x12 patterned paper to 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”.  Adhere to card front.

Step Three:  Cut the 8 ½” x 11 Pop Tones Grape Jelly cardstock to 4 ½” x 4 ½”.  Cut the  8 ½” x 11 Pop Tones Hot Fudge cardstock to 4 ¼” x 4 ¼”.  Adhere the Hot Fudge cardstock to the Grape Jelly cardstock.

Step Four:  Cut 8 ½” x 11 Malmero Perle cardstock to 4” x 4”.  Randomly stamp snowflake images in several coordinating ink colors.  I really like the Malmero Perle shimmer for these cards.


Step Five:  Cut the 4” x 4” Malmero Perle cardstock into quarters by cutting at 1 7/8” horizontally then vertically.



Step Six:  Adhere to 4 ½” x 4 ½” Hot Fudge cardstock, leaving an 1/8” border on all sides of the squares, simulating a window pane.

Step Seven:  Wrap ribbon around the three matted squares and tie in a knot in front.  Adhere to the front of the card using 3D Foam tape.

Step Eight:  Stamp sentiment on a scrap of ½” x 4 ¾” strip of Malmero Perle cardstock. Adhere to a ¾” x 4 ¾” strip of Grape Jelly cardstock.  Adhere to the card towards the bottom. 


I used the same measurements for my elf card.  These are fun to create using a scene, or using the random stamping technique.   Have fun with these! 

Happy Stamping!
