Tutorial: Nordic Christmas Window Card
Have you seen our newly release Nordic Christmas collection? Chrissie created a fantastic tutorial to give you a bit of inspiration with this range!
Crafter's Companion US Supplies:
Step 1: Color the image using Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. To soften the colors, use a paper stump.
Trees: 049, 065, 094
Houses: 063, 081, 035, 062, 113, 082
Step 2: Print out some patterned paper from the Destinations Papercrafting Twin CD-ROM. Cut it to 5.5" x 4.25" (standard A2 sized panel).
Place the largest rectangle from the Die'Sire Rectangles metal dies on the panel and secure it down with some respositionable tape.
Step 3: Run it through a die cutting machine,then use the large rectangle again, but place the next smaller sized one onto purple cardstock. This will be the window.
Carefully pull off the tape.
Step 4: Place the patterned paper over the colored image and adhered it down with permanent tape runner.
Step 5: Place the window over the image by adding the adhesive to the back.
Step 6: Die cut one of the sentiments from the same set, using the Die'Sire Essential Scalloped Rectangles. Inked up the edges a bit and adhere it with foam squares to give it some dimension.
Step 7: Add some sparkle on the snow areas, using Frosted Lace Stickles Glitter Glue.
