1. Create a Window card (Create an opening on the front of the card to see the image stamped inside.)
2. Use Christmas Ornament - or something similar
3. Some thing Gold
4. Something fuzzy
So far, I have shown you the inside of my card. My ornament is a clip on glass bird form Flourishes set called All That Glitters. My designer papers are from Memory Box and the card stocks are from Gina K. Designs. I used Nestabilities Beaded Oval and Scalloped Oval dies under my bird. The sentiment is from GKD stamp set called Festive Frame by Melanie Muenchinger. I did some sponging with Rich Cocoa, Memento ink and then threaded some fuzzy fiber from Adornaments, and tied a bow. Next I turned my attention to the ornament and decorated his tail, beak, and legs with Champagne gold Stickles. The rest of the bird was coated in Glossy Accents.Where is my window you ask? Well, this was the hard part. I thought about cutting an oval that was divided equally on the front panels, but it just was not working. I decided to add an 1 1/4 inch hole, just big enough for the birds head to peek out. I ran a metallic gold Sharpie around the hole to make it look finished. An MS border punch was used to dress up the front. I needed to create a closer so I cut an oval in half, used the gold Sharpie on the scallops and added gold beads. A Velcro circle was halved and positioned under the closer.
Phew, what do you think? That is what I call some serious playing! I may even do a little more on the front. Maybe a border stamp? I sure do love the inside, though!
