1. Score & fold an A4 sheet of white card in half, trim down to create a 5.5” x 7.5” card base with fold to left.
  2. Cut Buff coloured card approx. 13cm x 18cm and decorate with 2 different pattern papers, leaving a small even border of buff card all around.  Adhere to card front using tape runner.  Add paper tape strips across the top and lower third of card, cutting edges flush with card.
  3. Cut a rectangle of white card approx. 10.5cm x 13.5cm, cut a smaller rectangle in the centre to give an aperture approx. 7cm x 10cm.  (use dies or cut carefully with a craft knife).  Cover aperture with snowy acetate adhering to the reverse of the aperture using strong tape.  Turn over to right way and adhere 2 small strips of white card across the front as if window panes.
  4. Create a background for the window using white card and applying blue ink (sky) to the top part (or use blue paper / card).  Tear strips of white card (snow) and glue to bottom of panel.  Trim panel to fit behind window. Add a stag and snowflakes from the glitter sticker sheet and a few of the adhesive stars. Add 2 layers of 3D foam tape / pads all around the back of the window rectangle before mounting onto the background panel.  Adhere completed window to card front using strong adhesive tape.
  5. Add a ‘Christmas Joy’ sentiment sticker to buff card, fish tail ends and adhere to bottom of window, add a bow sticker above.
  6.  To finish, add a paper tape trim to white paper to create a matching card insert.  Add 2 large adhesive gems to sentiment.

*Why not experiment by turning the window card into a shaker card by adding snowflakes or sequins before enclosing with the back panel*
