Oh, What Fun.................

Oh, what fun indeed!  I have posted a couple of window cards from the inside looking outside.  Here is a brick home with a brown window where you can peek inside to see the Christmas tree.
The card base is 5 1/2" x  8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" Crumb Cake.  The "wall" is made using the Brick Wall embossing folder found on page 174 of the Annual Catalog or at my on-line store here .  To get the "mortar" lines on the wall, I brushed the raised side of the Brick Wall embossing folder with the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Ink Pad before running the front of the card through the Big Shot.  Despite several tries, I could not avoid a few smears of ink on the flat surfaces.  Therefore, I sponged the wall with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Hello Honey ink to "weather" all the bricks.

The tree from the retired Evergreen stamp set and the star are stamped with Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey onto 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla.  The window box and sentiment are also stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.   I sponged the edges of the torn sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink.

The window is cut from 3" x 3 1/2" Early Espresso card stock.  Both the Window and the window box are dies from the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies in the 2015 Holiday Catalog which goes live on September 1, 2015.  The sentiment is one of the 17 photopolymer stamps in the Oh, What Fun stamp set on page 5 of the Holiday Catalog.

The stamped tree scene is adhered to the brick with a snail.  The window is attached to the scene with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used dimensionals cut in half on the sides of the window frame and whole ones on the corners. 

The window box is filled with Old Olive inked holly and cherry cobbler inked berries from the "Cardinal in Holly" Tapestry Stamp Set.  The cardinal is from the same set.  The bird is stamped with Crumb Cake ink and colored in with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker. 

The bird is fussy cut and adhered with glue dot attached behind the window box at his feet.  The window box is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I look forward to making this card again once I receive the Peaceful Pines stamp set and Perfect Pines  Framelit Dies Bundle on page 17 of the Holiday Catalog.  Come back later to see what I create!
