For this months challenge I would like you to make a two card set that includes a window.

Image

Using
Authentique, Gathering,6x6 paper pad

Here are the steps I took to make my cards.

Step one.
Image
Cut card base to 8 1/2 x 6 inches. Score fold and ink. Cut two papers to 4x5 3/4 inches and attach the plain piece to the inside of the card.

Step two.
Image
Attach the other paper to the front with tape around edges and put through a big shot using a die to make the window.

Step three.
Image
Run the cut out peice through the big shot again with two smaller dies to make a frame and a smaller die cut. I have used one of the frames on my sketch sample.

Step 4.
Image
Stamp a script stamp over the small die and attach to the card stock with string between it.

Step 5.
Image
Thread string through the bottom and top of the window and embellish.

Image

You have until the end of the month to load you sketch up into the gallery to be in the running for a rak from me. I will get my walking number generator, Asher to pick out one lucky winner from both my sketch and card challenge entries and if you manage to do both you will have two chances to win.

Thanks for the idea. I actually did this challenge. But I don't a good hole punch or big shot here. So I did the best I could do. But I used the same sheet of paper on each card but reverse the side. I surprise myself at times. Good luck with the challenge. Can't wait to see all your work!!

Happy Scrapping

Good Morning
Did I do the cards right? Or should I have the bug and bee on clear film. I don't have a Big Shot here at my home. Sorry. Used the biggest hole punch I have got here.

Thanks for the feed back.
