Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Versamark, Vintage Pink Embossing Powder, White Fine Embossing Powder, Glimmer Mist Sparkle, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by taking a piece of white card stock 7″ x 7″1/2″ and scor it on the 2 1/2″ mark so you have a 5″ x 7″ card with a 2 1/2″ x 7″ flap on the front.  Cover the outside and inside panels with paper from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection cut slightly smaller for dimension.  To make the window, first die cut the window box and fancy topper from the Window Box Elements Die out of white card stock and finish the window box with the decorative edge from the same die collection cut out of a piece of paper from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection.  The Window Frame was stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Vintage Pink Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die.  The Window Box Fillers were created 2 different ways.  The first was to stamp the images on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Vintage Pink Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and finally colored with Rose Coral ink.  The second way was to stamp the images on white card stock with Frost White and heat embossed with White Fine Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and finally colored with Prussian Blue ink.  The leaves and tree images were stamped on white card stock with Northern Pine and die cut with the matching dies and then distressed with Olive Grove ink.  Once the card is assembled as shown, the entire card was lightly sprayed with Glimmer Mist and the centers of the flowers were accented with Prills.  A pretty bow was the finishing touch to the window box.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
