Since I didn't have time to follow along with the Holiday Card Boot Camp, I'm trying to catch up now. This card was based on a tutorial from Day 3, in which Jennifer McGuire created a pretty window card. I didn't have the same supplies she used, but I substituted a few things and I'm quite pleased with the result.

I started with a piece of pattern paper from the Basic Grey Nordic Holiday 6x6 paper pad. I love all the wonderful words, as well as the colors. Lovely! Once I adhered it to the card, I cut out a window using my 1 inch EK Success punch.

I stamped the gift from Fiskars What a Hoot stamp set, and colored it using Martha Stewart glitter markers. Then I cut it out and adhered it behind a strip of pattern paper (also from Nordic Holiday), on which I'd stamped a sentiment (again from What a Hoot) and embossed it using silver powder.

I secured the sentiment strip onto the card using two brads from the Recollections Brads: Pastel Medium Squares collection. Lastly, I wrapped some silver ribbon around the bottom of the card for the finishing touch.

    I sure would be pleased with this too. it's so pretty. Love the cool window crossed with the strip banner. Very cool. Lovely prints as well. Wonderful take on the boot camp tut. I like it even better actually. So well done.

  2. Thanks, Jen! The Bootcamp is wonderful for inspiration, but I find I'm missing many of the supplies they use in the videos. That's not a bad thing, overall, since it allows me to get even more creative with the supplies I have on hand. Glad you like the card!
