I have a clean and simple die cut window scene card to share with you today using the new Rubbernecker Window 4 Pane, Small Ivy and the Tiny Flower Buds. I created the indoor scene looking out the window to the ivy and flowers growing around the outside of the window. I made a simple cloudy blue sky background for the outside of the window. The designer paper is from a retired Papertrey pattern pack.
The Wainscoting and Paper Background
- Cut white cardstock 4.25″ wide and score every 1/4″ inch across to create the wainscoting.
- Cut a piece of designer paper 4.25″ wide and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the wainscoting and attach to the card base and overlapping the designer paper.
- Cut the window using white cardstock.
- Cut a 1/4″ strip of white cardstock and run through the crimper.
- Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the card base.
- Cut the window opening using a craft knife.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the opening.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of the 1/4″ strip of cardstock and tuck it under the window and attach it to create a chair rail to cover where the white and blue paper meet..
The Ivy and Flowers
- Cut a few sets of the ivy using green cardstock and a set of the tiny flower buds using blue cardstock.
- Trim off the stems of the ivy to fit inside the window.
- Apply glossy accents to the ivy pieces and attach to the inside opening of the window.
- Form the tiny flowers using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Apply glossy accents to the tiny flowers and attach them to the ivy.
The Cloudy Sky Background
- Cut a piece of cardstock large enough to cover the inside opening of the window.
- Apply blue cloud background using a cloud template, Tumbled Glass ink and an ink blending tool.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape around the window opening and attach the blue sky background.
I love to make die cut window scene cards. Whether it is creating an indoor scene looking out or and outdoor scene looking in. They are both equally fun to make. I hope you have been inspired to pull out your window dies and see what you can come up with. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
