Here is my "Window in to Christmas' card ...
I have used the wonderfully versatile 'Door/Window Frame die set' from Polka Doodles to create my French door and mullion windows. I have also cut away the card stock so that you could see through the windows, int o the scene behind.
I have added lace blinds to each window to add some quirky realism and then began building up the elements on the outside to create a winter scene. I have used the Polka Doodles Ltd 'Elegant Gate die' and the stamp sets 'O' Christmas Tree' and 'Red, Red, Robin', (both also from Polka Doodles Ltd).
I have embossed everything in white or shimmering pearl to add the snow effect, (which sadly my photo does not show). I have also decorated the inside of the card, so we had something to peek in at and added my Christmas sentiment.
I also videoed myself making the card, which highlights my decision process, and might even give better images to look at of my final project. Watch this space as I will try and improve upon my photographs .... am determined dot com! You can watch the video HERE.
Right gotta dash and give the house a quick once over, pop out and get some food as Luke & Rosie have decided to pop down for the day (& stay over). Happy dance as I think it's wonderful that the children (23 & 25), think of us as a 'go to' place ...
Have a wonderful day whatever your plans are,
