Today I’m sharing a fun Christmas tree window card with a kitty cat sitting on the sill contemplating havoc on the tree. I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Window 4 Pane, Greenery #1, Wrought Iron Fence, Lamp Post w/ Accessories, Nested Deckle Rectangle, Tiny Leaves, Cats and Small Star Outline.
The Christmas Tree
- Cut several sections of the greenery and cut the branches apart.
- Hand cut a slim triangle tree base using green cardstock.
- Begin attaching single branches to the top of the tree base using glossy accents and work your way down adding branches until the tree is complete. Check out my Christmas Tree Step by Step Tutorial to see photos and details of how I made my tree.
- Punch out several 1/8″ red circles and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
- Attach a gold star and red bow to the top of the tree using glossy accents.
- Apply red stickles to the red circles and set aside to dray.
- Cut the window using white cardstock.
- Use the window as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
- Cut the window opening opening on the scored card base using a craft knife.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the opening on the scored card base.
- Apply strips of mounting tape on the back of the scored card base and set aside.
Assemble the Card
- Apply double stick tape to the tree base and attach it to the back of the scored card base.
- Cut a piece of decorative paper and attach it to the card base using double stick tape.
- Attach the scored window base to the card base.
- Create the snow base by cutting a nested deckle rectangle and cutting off one side. Note: I used an edge of a deckle rectangle instead of the Deckle Hills because I wanted a straighter edge along the snow base.
- Use black cardstock to cut the fence and attach it to the back of the snow layer using double stick tape.
- Cut the lamps using black cardstock and cut yellow cardstock to fit behind. Attach the lamps to the card base with pieces of mounting tape.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the card base.
Decorate the Fence and Lamps
- Cut tiny leaves and attach to the top of the lamps using glossy accents.
- Attach tiny red circles to the lamps using glossy accents and then apply red stickles to the circles to add sparkle.
- Create the evergreen decoration by attaching greenery branches to the fence using glossy accents.
- Attach a multi loop red bow to the evergreen using glue dots. Check out my Multi Loop Bow Tutorial to see how I made my bow.
- Finish the card by coloring a cat and tucking it in the window and attach using glossy accents.
