Hey there, crafters!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
I started out by stamping the images on my cardstock and then colored them with my copics. I used the matching die set (HFD|SSS) to cut out the images. I then set them aside while I went to work on creating the panel of the card.
I used a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and treated the raised areas with some Distress Oxide ink. I then used a window die to cut out a window from the panel. I used the same die to cut the actual window from brown cardstock and set it aside. I then used a scallop border die and cut a piece of matching brown cardstock and glued it to the top of the panel to create the look of a roof edge. I then glued in my actual brown window to the panel, but only used glue on the outside edge so that I could still slip in some other colored elements. And then I brushed some Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink on to give the look of interior light. I cut another piece of brown cardstock in a rectangle shape and glued it on the bottom of the window to make it look like a window sill.
I placed my elf boy inside my window along with the presents along the bottom of the window. I thought the scene looked a little empty inside the window, so I stamped a Lawn Fawn Christmas tree image and colored it with my copics before using the matching dies to cut it out and glue it on to the inside of my window. I also used a white gel pen to add some details to the tree and presents just for some additional interest.
Once I was happy with the way the inside window scene looked, I glued my elf girl on the front of the card like she was looking in the window at her elf friend. I then used a sentiment from the Elfing Christmas Words stamp set (HFD|SSS) and stamped it in Versamark ink on the window sill before white heat embossing it.
I finished off the card by using a snowmarker pen to add some snowy details to the roof edge and window sill.
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you were inspired by this Christmas card!
