Merry Christmas

Here's a fun little card I made based on Lynn Mercurio's tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. There's a fair bit of measuring and cutting, but it's all worth it in the end because you get a dimensional card that looks more complicated than it really is. Since I was trying this out for the first time, I used left-over bits from the "Classic Christmas" paper pack by Stephanie Dyment. There are a few more ideas brewing upstairs based on the recessed window construction. This card is best delivered by hand as it does not fold flat.

Unmistakably Christmassy with the red, gold and green pallet. Felt flowers and ribbons adorn the corners.

The focal image is framed by Nellie Snellen MDF033 die-cuts in cranberry red pine green CS. Applied gold Liquid Pearls in the corners and Stickles along the edges for texture and shine. 

Note the recessed window which is about a quarter of an inch. As usual, I hand-stitched the patterned paper.

On the inside, I covered the extended portion of the window with some patterned paper and framed it with the same Nellie Snellen die-cut
