Double Window Card

Welcome Crafters!

I am so into Black & White Cards! Actually BLACK is one of my favorite color! I have a closet full of BLACK clothing. Over 10 years ago, one of my student's parent did a color clothing demo for teachers and that was an eye opener  for me- I had no clue that certain colors make you look thin and look better on your body than other colors.

After the demo she provided us the opportunity to purchase a color swatch book of the clothing colors that work best for our completions - I am a Winter  according to the swatch book.

While recovering from my eye surgeries these past weeks, I was allowed to only watch TV - no reading, no computer, etc. so I found the You Tube channel and viewed several paper crafting videos - this card is based on one of the videos I watched - I hope you will give it a try. Thanks for stopping by.

Double Window Winter Card. You can find a tutorial here on how to create your own double window card. I am using the Madison Window die by Poppystamps - in the tutorial, Wendy is using the Sizzix Stampin Up die. I also did not cut out some of the window frames as shown in the video.
It took me a bit to figure out how to cut the die using the Cuttlebug - as Wendy is using a Big Shot in the You Tube demo, but I got it to work through the Cuttlebug. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week! ~ Gail ~
