This week's Designer Challenge from Karen Burniston, is entitled 'Defying Gravity', so I was playing around with some clear acetate sheeting, and thought it would be fun to create a see-through window on a card.
I made the basic card using the Label Window insert in the Pop 'n Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edges.
I then cut a window in the largest floating label, with a Framelits die from the Wavy Label set.
I used the bit of card stock I had just cut out, to act as a rough guide for me to cut out by hand a slightly larger shape, from acetate sheeting. I then stuck this over the hole I had created in my larger floating label.
I made a gold corrugated frame, using the same dies, to cover the edges of the acetate piece.
I then added some glitter card stars, from Tim Holtz's Moon and Stars Bigz die.
The card is based on one of my favourite Christmas hymns 'O Holy Night', so I made a Christmas night themed card.
For the front of the card I made a spine piece, using the Edge & Scroll Bigz die, and added some banner pieces cut from paper-backed satin, using a die from Karen's new Banner & Borders Thinlits set.
I added some metallic snowflakes throughout the card, with little foam pads.
For the smaller floating label, I stuck on a label cut with the Butterflies & Labels Bigz die, and stamped 'O Holy Night' with Hero Arts Printer's Lowercase Alphabet stamps.
The paper is by October Afternoon.
I used the scroll from the Square Card with Ornate Edges to cut the gold corrugated scroll at the side, and one of Karen's lovely new embossing folders from her Trellis & Swirls set for the cream embossed card (which I hand cut to fit the shape of the scroll).
