Look Through A Window


It's Anja here on the last day of 2017. It was an awesome year for me. I got a new job, met a lot of new people and got a ton of new experiences. One of the highlights for sure was joining Cottage Cutz Design Team.

For my last craft project I made a card with a window and decorated interior. It was such a fun making it.

For this card I used:
 - Cottage Cutz dies (Fireplace w/ Accessories, Victorian Window, Lantern w/ Holly Vine),
- Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Pine Needles, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed) and Oxides (Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Black Soot),
- craft card base (14,5x10,5 cm),
- craft and white cardstock for background (10x14 cm),
- white cardstock for die cuts,
- white pigment ink pad,
- adhesive foam pads,
- double sided adhesive tape,
- textured plate - bricks,
- acetate foil
- craft knife,
- paper glue.

First I cut two holes for the window, one in the card base and the other into the craft rectangle. I die cut the window first two use it for drawing the cutting line. 

Then I made the brick background. I used white pigment ink to color around the edges of the craft paper.

I used acetate foil for the window. I adhered it with double sided tape.

I used adhesive foam pads to add the brick background.

I used Distress Oxides to color around white brick background.

Then I die cut and colored all the pieces for the window and the fireplace.

And then I had to glue everything together. This is the final result.

I'm off to my friends house now to spend the New Year's eve there.

I wish you all the best in 2018. Lots of peace, smiles, health, love and positive energy. Have a great celebration tonight.

See you again in 2018 :)

That's great! And I do have that fireplace die. Though sometimes I've wondered what I was thinking with all the little pieces. LOL It's really nice though and CC is definitely one of my favorite die companies! (possibly the very top!)

So creative Anja! It's great how you combined elements from three very different dies to create different looks. The brick background for the fireplace is also a nice touch. -Janet
