Winter Scene Window Card

Hi Everyone!

It’s FRIDAY! YAY! I’m excited that I got to craft tonight, but I also feel extra rushed to get this posted now because I also have to work tomorrow. 😦 boo….

I’m using Stampin’ Up! products for today’s card.  They’re new products from this year’s Holiday Catalog that I haven’t played with yet.  Seems like everything is centered around the holidays now and it’s coming  a lot faster than I want. I don’t know about you – but thinking about making a ton of holiday cards kinds of brings me anxiety – not to mention the presents, wrapping and trying to keep everyone happy!

Let’s focus on happy things, shall we? This card makes me happy – it feels so peaceful!

I stamped my trees and I guess the ink was still a bit wet when I started blending the blue background – so it was completely unintentional that some of the red from the brown Early Espresso ink that I used bleed and created this soft pink background around the trees.  It ended up looking sooo pretty!

I tried to keep it looking realistic by trying to make it look like a window scene – but I couldn’t help but add some texture/snow to the card base.  Who has snow on their walls? Ok…maybe I shouldn’t get too literal about a window scene.

Here’s a closer look at the window scene:

I love heat embossing. It just makes everything look pretty and soft. Here’s the video if you’d like to see the process:

  1. Oh, Caly, what a beautiful card, and I love the wintery scene in the window. And how perfect that the ink did something you didn’t plan…but turned out so exquisite! I love this sweet card, and I hope you just enjoy making cards and don’t stress out. You have lots of time, and you can always make duplicate cards. Remember, they won’t know that someone else is getting the same card! Hehe! Hugs!
