Tuesday Tutorial: Window Card by Tiffany

We are excited to bring you this detailed step-by-step tutorial by our talented Tiffany Hood. She submitted this card above to us when she applied for the design team and we could wait to have her step it out and show all of us how she made it. If you have chance, be sure to jump over to Tiffany's blog to check out other inspiring ideas! 

1.  For the “building” you’ll need:  Three pieces of dot-grid cardstock in Ladybug (two 2 x 5”, one 1.5 x 5”); Two pieces of white cardstock (one 2x5 inch, one 1.5x5 inch)
 2.  Using a scallop edge punch, punch the long edge of the white and red 2x5 inch pieces
 3.  Cut apart the white scallops using a paper cutter
 4.  Attach white strips to red scalloped strip on every other scallop.

5.  Attach 1.5x5 inch strip to top

 6.  Using the edge of a ruler, bend up the “window shade”
 7.  Turn face down and use the ruler to bend down the scalloped edge
 8.  The window awning is complete!
 9.  Place sticker sentiment on the other piece of red cardstock
 10.  Attach both to the front of a 5x7 inch card
 11.  Repeat process with the strip of 1.5x5 inch white cardstock
 12.  Adhere a piece of ribbon across the white strip.  Add a bow to the side.  Embellish the “window sill” with paper flowers, brads, and stickers as desired.
 13.  Adhere a 4x5 piece of “Up Up and Away” cloud paper.

14.  Adhere window sill

 15.  Add tree and cloud stickers
 16.  To make window: Using Cricut Design Studio, add a square to the mat from the “George and Basic Shapes” Cricut Cartridge.
 17.  Stretch the square into a 4 inch long rectangle
 18.  Copy and paste three more rectangles, place two outer rectangles 5 inches apart, space the other two evenly.  Click on each and press “weld”
 19.  Add another long rectangle across the top.  Be sure to click the “weld” button

20.  Add three more, clicking the “weld” button each time. Preview the shape, make sure all are welded, cut out window using Cricut machine.

 21.  Cut small pieces of dimensional foam adhesive.  Place across top of window.  Place window on card front.
 22.  Using a Zig 2-way glue pen, adhere the bottom of the window to the card.
 23.  Window on card
 24.  Add frog and mushroom stickers
 25.  Select more stickers for the scenery.  I chose a sun, another tree and a butterfly.
 26.  Add dimensional foam adhesive to the back of the stickers.
 27.  Place popped-up stickers under window.

28.  Voila!  Finished card.
