Rest of the Window Christmas Card

I gave you the materials and instructions for the first part of this card on Wednesday. Today we have the rest of the card, or as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story."

front of the card from Wednesday

Open the window of the card and see a Christmas tree with a message.

Do not adhere the window to the large piece of Whisper White cardstock yet.

Evergreen stamp set (#127973)
Gumball Green InColor ink
Night of Navy classic ink
Daffodil Delight classic ink
Basic Black marker
Whisper White cardstock cut 5 1/2x 8 1/2"
The window that you made from Wednesday.

Score and fold the Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/4." On the front folded section, stamp a solid tree from the Evergreen stamp set in Gumball Green In Color ink in the center of the cardstock. Use Night of Navy to stamp the words of Silent Night onto the tree.
Use the basic black marker to draw lines to make mounds of snow around the tree.

Now adhere the window from Wednesday onto the front of this. Be sure you only place adhesive on the outside edges of the window. Do not adhere the window portion. You want the window to be able to open.

Finish the card by stamping the inside of the card like you see here.

The inside greeting and the lighter tree are both with the Evergreen stamp set. Now how many times have you used every stamp in a set on one card? Be sure to sign your creation on the back of your card. I always sign with my name and date. I have a dear friend who signs her cards with her first name. However you want to sign your card, just be sure that you  do because, even though it's my design, it's your creation!
