Here’s One I’m Making – Christmas Cards 2016 (4)

So after a couple of evenings of making all the elements of for the cards, I need to start to put them together. and I started with making the windows. Fitting a back to a front with the help of 3D foam. It does help them look more like windows with vistas.

CC_2016_04_04As I am using an embossed piece of Centural Pearl, I knew that my trusted dry herma would not be sticky enough to hold the window topper so I opted to go with a wet glue. If you follow my blog regularly you will know that when I can’t use herma, I tend to go with double-sided tape but that would have taken far too long.

CC_2016_04_01I could be converted with this glue, its slightly thicker than acrylic glue I am use to but it dries very quickly but with still enough time to move the elements around until you are happy with the position.

CC_2016_04_03With the first stage of construction out-of-the-way, I have now completed:

  1. Die Cut Window Frames
  2. Cut out Acetate for windows
  3. Stamp snowflakes on acetate (with white Stazon) and stick to windows
  4. Ink background cards and mask out snow and moon
  5. Stamp silhouette designs on to background cards (all different)
  6. Cut out the trims for the windows
  7. Cut out the word Merry for each card
  8. Emboss Snow on the background card
  9. Stamp the word Christmas
  10. Die cut the Christmas Banner
  11. Construct the windows
  12. Fix the background to the card
  13. Fix the window to the background
