Hey everyone! Today I’m here with a very late card for Day 1 of the Holiday Card Workshop at Online Card Classes.
The lesson for day 1 was the importance of not only the outside of the card, but also the inside. We were challenged to make a card with something on the inside.
Here is the outside of my card –
And here is the inside —
I’ve always wanted to make a window card and never got it right since I didn’t have a die-cutting machine. Now that I have one, I thought it would be awesome to make a window card.
Let’s get to the card details —
I started card with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. To make the window, I used the the 4th smallest circle from the Sizzix Framelits cirlce die set. To make the frame, I used the a slightly larger scallop die from the Sizzix Framelits Cirlce Scallop die set. I cut the frame using patterned paper from the Noel collection from American Crafts. I also used a strip of the same patterned paper at the bottom.
For the inside of the card, I lined the entire panel with a snowflake printed pattern paper from the same Noel Collection from American Crafts. I stamped the owl from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl and the tree log from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the AC Chromatix markers to try (the operative word is try) to color and blend. I really want to learn how to blend alcohol markers and I really don’t think I’m any good. I will keep practicing until I get better. I paper pieced another patterned paper from the Noel collection to be the owl’s scarf. I placed both images on the inside of the card to align with the window so the image can be seen when the card is open or closed. For the sentiment, I used the sentiment the Winter Owl set and selectively stamped with Cottage Ivy and Rhubarb Stalk inks from Memento. I stamped it on the Sizzix scallop oval from the Sizzix and Doodlebug Borders set. I braided Lawn Fawn’s Peppermint twine and adhered the sentiment panel on top. To finish the card, I distressed the scallop oval with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink and rounded the corners.
That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.
This card is an entry for the 7 or less Challenge hosted by Marie at My Creative Creations.
OWL I WANT IS YOU
On pink card stock, I used the one of the Chevron backgrounds from Lawn Fawn’s Chevron backdrops set. I stamped the image using Memento Angel Pink Ink.
On white card stock, using Memento Tuxedo black ink I stamped 2 owls from the Winter Owl set and used the hearts from the same set to make a pattern for the scarves. I colored the owls in using Bic Mark It Markers. I cut a heart out from the same white card stock and colored it in with a red Bic Mark It Marker. I used the heart as an accent piece in between the owls.
For the sentiment, I decided to modify the Christmas themed Winter Owl sentiment and removed the word “Christmas”. I stamped it using Memento Tuxedo black
Since I already had 7 items and I wanted to round my corners, I free handed it using my scissors.

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You
I made this card in October and I entered it for the Lawn Fawn and Two Peas In A Bucket challenge. I thought I would share it since I never made a blog post about it. 🙂
I started out with a bamboo green card stock from The Paper Company cut to a standard size card with the flap on the side. To that I layered some red card stock and then layered the green chevron paper from Lawn Fawn’s Fa-la-la patterned paper pack. For the top panel, I stamped the Polaroid image from Say Cheese on the O Christmas Tree patterned paper from the same Fa-la-la paper pack. I distressed the Polaroid with some Dessert Sand ink from Memento. For the actual picture in the Polaroid, I distressed the background with some Summer Sky ink from Memento on the entire square and some Broken China Distress ink for a darker effect on the sides. Then I stamped the Snowflake stamp from Imaginisce in Bahama Blue ink from Memento and accented each snowflake with some blue stickles. For the owl, I used Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl set. I stamped the owl on some plain white card stock and colored it in with Copics. I paper pieced the scarf with the same green chevron paper from the Fa-la-la paper pack by Lawn Fawn. I used googly eyes for fun. For the sentiment, I used the puny sentiment from the same Winter Owl set. I stamped the each word individually to properly space it between three lines in Lady Bug and Cottage Ivy inks from Memento. I also stamped the mini heart border. I placed some peppermint single cord from Lawn Fawn under the die cut image for added accent.

I Heart You
On a standard size kraft card stock from The Paper Company, I stamped the medium chevron pattern from the Chevron Backdrops set alternately in Rhubarb Stalk and Paris Dusk inks from Memento. I adhered the front panel on a Bazzill card stock in Nightmist, then I stamped an alphabet block using Claire’s ABC and highlighted the I and U in Rhubarb Stalk. For the heart, i punched out one with red card stock. I accented the heart with some red stickles. To finish the card, I used the mini heart border from the Winter Owl set.
