You may have come to my page from the talented Tina Gillespie, or you might be starting here, but make sure you follow the loop and check out all the fantastic blogs.
I decided to have a go at a "Changing Window" card, and after much searching on the WWW, found a template which could be printed on Cardstock and cut out. It was reasonably easy, but you have to be careful not to slide the panel too far or it gets stuck, and is really hard to get it back to the start.
I was really happy when Stampin' Up! decided to put some Christmas stamp sets back into the Annual Catalogue and we no longer have to wait for the Occasions Catalogue later in the year. I was even happier when I realised that the Festival Of Trees stamp set and punch were returning. I think they look great in these bright colours and the Cherry On Top Washi Tape goes really well with this particular stamp.
This is the first "window" of the card
This is the second "window".
I wanted to make a bright Christmas card, although now would be the time to make a more traditional "snowy" card, as the weather outside is "frightful" as the song says. I have trouble making snowy Christmas cards as we live in such a warm climate, it just doesn't seem right. I love the look of them, and perhaps this year I might be more inspired as we are going to take the kids overseas for a White Christmas - I am so excited!!!!
Hope you like my card - next on the Blog Hop is the lovely Claire Daly.
As always if you get lost there is a complete list of the participants at the bottom of my post.
Merry Christmas in July
