Winter Window

I haven't been very creative this week as I've been worrying about my Mum who has been in hospital with heart issues.  But thankfully they figured out the problem - and have gone in and done as much repair work as possible for an 89 year old who's health is compromised.  She's doing well and will get to go home next week sometime.  Thank you to those of you who added encouraging comments on my last post.  She love receiving that card I made for her.

Now it's back to Christmas cards.  This week's SCS CAS challenge is to make a Christmas card using acetate on the card in some way.  I love making cards with windows on them, and acetate is perfect for them.


I used a scrap of glossy cs that I'd coloured with alcohol inks, layered two hills of white cs, used a glue pen to add some glitter to the hills, and then added two die cut trees.

I cut three window dies and glued them together, with the acetate glued in between two of the layers. On the back, I added some glitter along the edges of the window frame.

The window is attached to a background made using a striped embossing folder to look like wood panelling with a scored strip across it for a chair rail.

Thanks for stopping by!






Supplies:
Paper: white cs, dark green shimmer cs, coated cs
Paper Size: A2
Accessories: blue alcohol inks, Memory Box window die, Impression Obsession tree dies, scrap of acetate packaging, glitter, foam tape, SU embossing folder
