Hi friends, today I have a fun die cut window card to share with you all. This was my first try at creating a window card, but I am please with the results. I hope you will be too! I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire on this project, I have posted a link to her inspiration video at the bottom of the post.
I created this 4 1/2 x 5 1/2'' card using white card stock as the base. I got out the Flight of Fancy Stencil from Rebecca's Store and the larger Artiste Stenciler Brush to apply my Distress inks.
I taped down the stencil with the RB Mini Masking Tape to ensure that my stencil wouldn't move as I wanted a nice crisp image. I applied several layers of the ink and
Once that was completed it was time to die cut. I used my inked piece and used more of the RB Masking Tape to hold down my die, (this stuff is invaluable to me now, I just love it) and ran it through my Big Kick.
I cut out the circle first with my circular die and then cut the word out of the circle, I just found it easier this way.
Once I had the circle and the word cut out, I used more of the tape to hold the top half of the circle in place and then attached the word across the middle of the tape. I wanted to make sure I had the pattern lined up on the card as well so it was an easy way to ensure I had the word lined up.
Now that this part was ready I added some foam tape to pop this part of the card up and set it aside.
Once that was completed I got out my second piece of card stock and used my embossing paste and the same stencil to create some texture on it.
I lined up the patterns from the embossing paste card and the Inked up card to ensure the patterns matched, I wanted it to look like one continuous pattern on the card. The die cut hello just floats nicely in the middle, I added a tiny bit of clear foam tape for some stability on the back of it, and some silver sequins to finish it off.
This card does have a lot of steps to it, but I felt it was worth it for the fun look I got.
Also, this card created an extra circle die cut, and I used it and the tiny die cut pieces to create a small note card to go along with this card.
I hope you enjoyed my project today and will check out all the great items in Rebecca's Store and also the DT blog as well.
