A Christmas Cottage Window

I bought Cottage Window (Stampin' Up) because it included a variety of stamps for different seasons. I finally decided to use it to make a Christmas card with the window image and the holly berry swag.

* The window image was stamped onto Bella White card stock, coloured with copic markers and then fussy cut (on the outside and the inside).
* The holly swag was stamped onto another piece of card stock and coloured with copic markers. The snowflake stamps were added with Bashful Blue ink and highlighted with a clear glitter gel pen.
* I was then able to mount the cut window over the stamped holly and snowflakes so that the swag was positioned in the top and right corners of the window. These layers were then added to the card front. (Confetti White impressed with the Woodgrain IPThis was time consuming, but creates a lot of dimension to the final image.

* The set of gift packages (SU: Loads of Love) were stamped, coloured with copic markers and then fussy cut, before gluing them on the window sill. A small red bow was added to the top corner of the window and holly swag.
