Be prepared for the holidays this year. Now is the time to be working on your holiday cards if you haven’t already. They will be here before we all know it. This woodsy feel card brings a fresh look to your cards for the season. It’s light and airy with a twist of winter added to it.
It’s important to do this step first to allow for the Stickles to dry while you are creating the rest of the pieces. Lay a piece of acetate on top of a piece of cardstock and using the window die run it through your die cut machine. Layering the acetate on top of the cardstock will help the die cut all the way through the clear plastic.
Now, take the acetate “windows” created in the first step and spread a small line of Stickles on the bottom from corner to corner. Use a paper towel and a small amount of pressure to dab the glitter glue so that it spreads out as shown. Lay these pieces aside to dry. This will give the windows a frosted or icy look.
Cut a second window frame from cardstock that matches the patterned paper you have chosen to use. Lay this piece aside.
Create a 5” x 7” card base from cardstock (kraft cardstock shown). Use a scoring board to get a crisp, clean fold for the base. Cut a 4 ½” x 6 ½” piece of patterned paper (Winter Wonderland by Simple Stories shown) and add it to the front of the card using a tape runner.
Attach the window frame and the acetate windows using a glue pen. Keep the glue behind the Stickles so it won’t be easily seen when it dries.
Finish the card with a sentiment on the inside.
It’s not too late to start your cards for the year and with this easy to make card you’ll have them done in no time. Share the holidays with all of those you know with this woodsy winter card. Gather your supplies and enjoy creating before the holidays arrive and things are busy!
