Window frame

It's that time of week again when this weeks fabulous creations by the design team for Heartfelt Creations are unveiled.  I am impressed and inspired each week by the great designs and all the fact, as I was working on my Christmas cards to mail this week I went through all those posts to get ideas to case!  I've got 80 cards and need over 100, so I'm not quite there yet LOL!

When I saw this new window frame die from Heartfelt Creations I immediately knew I had to create a window scene with curtains.  Here is my first attempt with this, which I thought came out well!

So are your trees up and decorations up?  I've got a fun poll set up right now, I'm interested in seeing the results, so please play's on the right hand side bar.

Products Used on This Project
HCD 708 Decorative Window Die
415217 Fancy Tags Nestabilities 
977D Three Spruce 
HCPC 3338 Petite Medallion Background PreCut Set
HCPC 3349Cardinal Holiday Mailbox PreCut Set (sentiment)

Acetate sheet
Embossing folder (sorry, don't remember name or brand!)
Coordinations cardstock (with white core to sand better)
lace from fabric store
White staz on ink for the snowflakes on the window sheet


Cut out frame using die cut. Hand cut a piece of acetate (clear card stock) to fit in the window, stamp with snowflakes using Staz on white ink. Adhere acetate to back of window frame, set aside. Stamp trees in green ink on white card stock, colour in background blue. Cut out to fit window frame, and adhere to back of window using pop up dots. Stamp sentiment in black ink on white card stock and cut out using label die cut. Create background using an embossing folder, adhere all pieces together, then add lace around the window to look like curtains.
