Through the Window

I am so proud of this card!! I have been searching high and low for some acetate and had no luck at all until I read on a blog that there was a product in the stained glass area of M's and sure enough, there it was! Its Gallery Glass, made by Plaid, in case any of you are having the same problem.I used the Noel cart, cutting the window at 5 1/2". I cut it in blackout for the base, then again to use the Village Cuttlebug folder with and then 2 more times for the frame.The house was cut at 2 1/2, oh about 4 times ! The trees were cut at 2",the pine branch at 2" as well.I used Camp Out for the pine cones, cut at 1/2" and Jasmine for the corners, cut on shadow, at 4".I added MS snowflakes glitter, on the gallery glass, along the window frame and fine crystal on the trees and rooftops.I also cut the window on blackout for the inside sentiment card.I had SOO much fun watching this card develop and was so excited to finally find this gallery glass !! I added several shots, trying to get a good shot of the glass, but I'm not so sure you can really get a feel of it. Thanks so much for taking a peek!! I hope you enjoy the view, through the window.



Joy, this is absolutely gorgeous! What a breathtaking scene and that gallery glass is crystal clear! The glitter is scattered perfectly!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
