2019 holiday cards collection lookbook – more window embellishments

Welcome back to my 2019 Holiday Cards Collection Lookbook Blog Series! In this post, I’ll be sharing more details on my next set of window embellishment cards. If you want to know how (in detail) to make the windows in these cards, read my Snowy Backgrounds post here! I am definitely not taking credit for this technique, this is Jennifer McGuire’s fault since she taught it! LOL, just kidding! It’s a fun method and I highly recommend you give it a try.

I’ll give you a brief summary on these cards as the technique used is detailed in the Snowy background post, so let’s hop to it!

Instead of using the laminator and white embossing powder for a snowy window embellishment, I decided to use die cutting instead. I used a circle die first on the white cardstock to overlap my glitter paper.

I knew there would be a lot of white so to offset it, I adhered them to Kraft cardstock paper. I also wanted a dark glittery paper showing through so I used a dark blue and teal for my windows. I rotated between the Tim Holtz Woodlands trees and the Simon Says Stamp Dancing Deer die sets (which comes with the outline and center, but I just used the outline). I cut these out on Neenah 110 lb. solar white cardstock.

Each has the sentiment strip “Sending you Love” by Simon Says Stamp but the line underneath is different also from Simon which is their pre-made sentiments that all you do is cut them out.

I topped these cards with assorted sequins in teals, blues as well as gems.

The sentiment underneath the stamped one has double-sided foam tape underneath for dimension.

I also added Nuvo Drops (Bohemian teal) color and let all this to dry.
