I love surprises and surprise cards are no exception. Open the box to reveal a sweet Christmas scene.
Today's project is to make a window box card, based upon the aperture box template already covered in an earlier blog post. It has been adapted slightly and you can get the amended template on our freebie pages.
Make up the box in the same way as the window aperture box. Create a scene inside with stamps or die cuts, layering the elements with foam pads to create depth.
This card uses the Stampin Up ' City of David' Stamp in the foreground, stamped onto acetate and coloured in. The background has an acrylic city stamp image, with handcut sand dunes, edged with chalk and a chalked sky.
Here is another card:
A traditional snow scene, with glitter card snow and a glittery sticker tree. The stars are just dots of glitter glue.
Work up your scene from the back to the front, adding a few layers to give depth.
I hope you have enjoyed the projects we have featured on the blog in the run up to this Christmas. We have certainly enjoyed designing and listing them.
