Through the Window


Hi everyone.  Here's my DT card is for today's challenge at Addicted to CAS.  Remember, the challenge runs for two weeks, so there's lots of time to enter!!

This challenge is being run by the mega talented Christine (Das Kartenchaos)  ... and she chose this fun word:






Prize:  $20 Gift Voucher
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)


I added an acetate panel between two layers of the window die to create the "glass" for the window.  I then added Martha Stewart's Sparkle Texture Effect on the four glass panels, along the top of the window and window box for snow.

Inside, there is a decorated Christmas tree with ornaments and a glittery star at the top and I sponged the walls in a nice, warm yellow.

Here's a close-up:





Stamps:  Moose Is Loose (Kittie Kits - Rubbernecker Stamps); Merry and Bright Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs), Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Old Olive, Garden Green, So Saffron, Real Red, Whisper White re-inker (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Small Madison Window die and Small Flower Box (Poppy Stamps), Brick Embossing Folder (Tim Holtz for Sizzix), Stamp-a-ma-jig, sponge, Martha Stewart Sparkle Texture Effect, acetate sheet, adhesives, glue, and dimensionals



I hope I have inspired you to join in our fun challenge ...  Addicted to CAS - Transparent. Come check out all the wonderful creations by the other Design Team members.

This is the most beautiful window I have seen, Loll I simply love the details, the snow on the glass panes, the Christmas tree and the wall.. Too good

Hi Loll, this is beautiful as ever, you are the master of window cards! Love how the warm colour inside contrasts with the cold of the snow on the outside of the window. xx

Wow! Another beautiful and inspiring card. I would like to thank you again for helping me in my quest to submit my cards correctly. It has taken me almost three months but I think I now direct people to the card and not my blog. It is much easier using the PC than my husband's MAC. And thanks to you and my granddaughter I think I have mastered my blog entries. Next is taking much better photos of the card.

Absolutely gorgeous! Your snow in the window corners & at the top of the window were inspired, really created the icy feel, along with the view of the Christmas tree inside this lovely window. Loved how you used the window box to add your sentiment. TFS & Hugs
