Happy Monday, crafty friends! Thank you so much for making last week’s February Release so much fun. Today we are sharing an absolutely darling card from Creative Team member, Courtney Kelley. If you are in need of a cuteness injection, this is the card for you!
Plus! We are giving away some products to help you create this card! Keep reading for details…
Courtney used our Peeking In Stamp & Die Combo and paired it with our Arched Window die to create this clean and simple card. Check out the step-by-step instructions for how to create this fun card.
Step 1: Cut card base from Sugar Cube Cardstock and fold in half.
Step 2: Emboss a Sugar Cube panel with the Corrugated Embossing Folder. Trim to the height of the card and 1/2” less than the width of the card. Adhere to card base.
Step 3: Stamp the cat onto various patterned papers and Earl Grey Cardstock. Fussy cut the cat, his nose, the bird and the heart from the patterned papers (set aside the cardstock-stamped images until next step).
Step 4: Die cut the following pieces:
- Arched Window from wood grain and yellow stripes patterned paper
- Window Accessories curtains from flower patterned paper
- Peeking In cat that was stamped onto Earl Grey cardstock from the previous step
- Build a Scene 3 banner from Peapod cardstock
Step 5: For the background of the window scene, adhere the yellow die-cut window, including the four inside window pieces, to the card about 3/4” from the top of the card.
Step 6: Adhere the curtain die-cuts and the cat die-cut. Paper-piece the fussy-cut cat pieces atop the gray cat die-cut (this will give you the gray outline for the cat.)
Step 7: To finish the scene, adhere the wood grain window die-cut with foam tape.
Stamp the sentiment onto the banner die-cut and adhere along the bottom of the window.
Step 8: Embellish with a few blue enamel dots.
We hope you will be inspired to create this card! Thanks so much to
