Window Card Tutorial

Don't you just love window cards? They are so different from anything you can buy in the store and you can make them to fit any occasion. Sprinkle a little glitter on it and you can't take your eyes off it. Well today we are going to do a window card from design to finish and you will just love how easy it is to design your own cards. so go get a cup of coffee, turn on your Gypsy and let's get to work.

Now wasn't that easy. I used a card from the Art Philosophy cartridge, making the overall design as easy as can be. Just follow the step by step instructions and you to will have 2 cards designed in just minutes. Be sure to pick your phrase before you start to make it easier to follow along.

So easy to put together too, don't you love it. Be sure to use an adhesive that give you enough time to maneuver your phrases and art into the right position on the card.

This is what our finished card looks like. Isn't it pretty? I used a two sided card stack from K and Company and the glitter paper is from Joann's. I used some old brads I had in my stash  and I love that with 1 and 1/2 sheet of paper I have two beautiful cards.

Here is a closeup of the inside of the card, the little matching flower on the inside of the cards was the perfect touch to bring the inside a little life.

Notice how well the card stands too. It has just the right strength to it with the addition of the flower in the top corner. Be sure to think of that when you are creating. You want your cards sturdy and ready to be passed around!

And of course I make my cards two up so that I can used one and have a spare for future use. This time I am using both of them the same weekend! Guess I should make another set for future use! LOL
This week I challenge you to make a window card and link it up. Any kind of window card that your Cricut machine can cut. Let's see what your cards look like.
