Happy Holidays Window Card

We're celebrating Christmas in July here at A Jillian Vance Design, and today I have a Happy Holidays Window Card!

I just love dies, and when I design a project I start with dies and then add other embellishments. For this card I wanted to make an opening, or aperture, in the card front, with the embellishment on the inside. 

I adhered the red paper to the front of the card then die cut with the Banner Die. Then I stamped and embossed the Happy Holidays sentiment on coordinating paper and die cut it with the fancy die in the {die}namic Duo set. It is adhered with 3D Foam Squares so it has some dimension, and its just wide enough to hold the card closed. Kind of a fun and different approach to using dies on a card!


I used these supplies:

{die}namic Duo
Banner {die}tails Nested Die Set
