How'd they Make That - Love of Leaves Window Card Episode 3

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you how they made the super cute sample on page 49 of the August-December Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog,  the Love of Leaves Window Card.  This was a super cute sample that caught my eye as soon as I saw it in the catalog.  I love the designer series paper, the bundle, the whole shabang!  Here's a look at the card.  

Tips & Tricks:

This is a super easy way to create a window card and as I am sitting here typing this post you could easily make this into a shaker card as well with ease with the addition of some window sheet and sequins.   I am just going to throw that out there so don't be surprised if you see this card turned into one in the near future.  But to make the card as is in the catalog this is how I did it.  I took a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock and cut it at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored it at 5 1/2".  I then attached a piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and attached it to the complete front of the card.  

I then cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4" and took the Hello stamp from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and stamped it repeatedly on the cardstock in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I then cut out the leaf shaped opening with one of the leaf dies from the Stitched Leaves Dies.  Which by the way are a very unique set of dies, there is stitching around the cut edge of the outline.  To get the stitching on the inside of the leaves you have another die that layers on the inside to do the stitching there.  I placed this layer over the card base attaching it with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it left off the card base.  I know super easy right.  


I then added a little piece of the 3/8" Embroidered Ribbon to the front of the card with Stampin' Seal and took a piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock (just a scrap piece) and stamped my sentiment in Versamark Ink and added White Stampin' Emboss Powder to it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  This was added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals over the ribbon.  To finish off the card I added a few of the White enamel dots from the All the Trimming Embellishments.
