Gingham Clean and Simple Christmas Window

Good Saturday morning.  I have a clean and simple Christmas window to share with you today.  I love red and white gingham on Christmas projects.  I had one small scrap of the Tina Wenke’s gingham paper left and thought it would be sweet paired with the Poppystamps French Doors.

I like using the french doors as a double paned window.  I cut two sets of dies, one for the outside and one for the inside. I measured and marked the card front using the die as a template so I could cut the window opening. I mounted the window over the opening using mounting tape. I cut the decorative border on the gingham paper and crimped it and attached it on the inside of the card base window opening. I mounted the second window on the inside using mounting tape.KC Poppy Stamps Grand Madison French Door 2 center

I attached the pine branches to the window base and I created flowers out of the designer paper and arranged in the pine for the finishing holiday decorations.  I really like how clean and simple this.  I left the window open to the inside and think it would be fun to be able to see the sentiment from the front window opening.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend.  Wait…..what I am thinking? Everyone is going to be running around  the grocery stores shopping for Thanksgiving holiday celebration.  Oh well….take a little time for yourself.

  1. Good Morning, Kittie, what a beautiful country homey window. I love that feeling. Question? when you put the window on the inside, did it cover up the hanging curtain, or would it look like just an hanging curtain maybe with even a curtain rod on top of the curtain. I love how the flowers have the same pattern as the curtain. Very inspiring….have a good day. ….hugs and smiles….PS: good idea to see the sentiment from the window that is on the inside.

  2. well Kittie, you did it again, I’m off to buy another die….lol. Pretty soon I’m gonna have as many as you….lol. I love the simplicity of the card and it’s striking at the same time. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity….

  3. Oh, I just love this card Kittie. The gingham curtains look great. I now own nearly all of those fantastic Memory Box window dies thanks to all the inspiration from your beautiful cards!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. When I have 3 dimensional card, I mail them in small boxes. The postage is a lot more than a flat card, so I try to make this kind when I can hand deliver it. I’d like to know what others do also. This card is fantastic!

  5. Kittie, once again you’ve outdone yourself! I will “borrow” this idea for my hand-delivered holiday cards to my co-workers, if you don’t mind!! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!
