OOh – I am so excited to share today’s slimline Christmas window card with you because I feel like it shows off so many of the things I love in a card. The surprise of the little windows, the fun details and the simple beauty of small elements on white space. I have to say that every time Rubbernecker comes out with something new I am blown away by their attention to details and how FUN they make it for me to make cards! And I love that their dies do so much of the “work” for me so I can just be creative!
To make this card I used the Rubbernecker Slimline Nested Scallop with Stitch, Slimline Peek-a-Boo Fancy Edge, Christmas Mini, Nested Square and Christmas Phrases Large/Small.
The Slimline and Card Base
- Cut a 7.00″ x 8.50 white card base and sore down the center.
- Create a 3.25″ x 8.25″ green layer.
- Use red cardstock and the largest die in the Slimline Nested Scallop to cut the base.
- Lay the red scallop layer back on the cutting platform, line up the Slimline Peek-a-
Boo over the base and cut.
- Cut three scallop layers using white cardstock. Note: The Nested Scallop set is retired.
- Use red cardstock to cut three scallop layers and cut the frame openings using the smallest square die.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the green layer and attach it to the white card base.
- Use strips of mounting tape to attach the red peek-a-boo window layer to the card base.
Christmas Images and Sentiment
- Stamp the sentiment on a scallop layer using black ink and attach the layer to the center window cover.
- Attach the two additional scallop layers to the window covers using ATG adhesive.
- Insert the small red frames inside the window openings using threads of rolled up 1/8″ double stick tape.
- Cut the mini die cuts using red, green, yellow and gold cardstock.
- Assemble the mini wreaths pieces together using glossy accents and attach to the front scallop layers.
- Assemble the mini Christmas tree and ornament pieces together and attach inside the scallop frames using glossy accents.
- Use glossy accents to attach the sections of the bell together and attach inside the scallop frame.
