Welcome to another month with the Seashore Stampers. We had a choice: to make a Father’s Day or masculine themed project.
I chose to make a masculine themed card that I could give as a birthday card. At our recent Seashore Stampers monthly meeting over Zoom, one of our members showed us how to create a window card. The version we made was a portrait orientation and I decided to try for landscape orientation.
This is a fun card to make with lots of possibilities. It allows the recipient a peek at the inside of the card so it’s important to carry the theme from the outside to the inside. I chose to use the stamp set called Whiskey Business.
One of the key supplies for making this card is our Window Sheets, item #142314 for $6.75 CAD. You get two 12″ x 12″ sheets. I love having these on hand for when I make card boxes.
When designing the inside of the card, you need to take into account where to position the elements so you see them clearly through the window. I will show you how in the video below.
