Hello friends. The next post in my Fall card series features a window card using the coordinating dies from the Catherine Pooler’s Appley Ever After stampset. This was a very easy card to make. To add texture to the background I added an embossed panel behind it (more on this later in the post).
For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and another piece 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ which I embossed using the Catherine Pooler Designs Woven Coverplate (see your embossing machines instructions for proper sandwich).
I cut a piece of pattern paper from the Catherine Pooler Bushel and a Peck 6 x 6 Patterned Paper to 2-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and cut out three apple windows using the dies from the Appley Ever After Dies. I cut 2 pieces of red metallic cardstock from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock to 3/4 x 5-1/2″.
Then stamped a sentiment and two apples onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ from the Catherine Pooler Designs Appley Ever After Stamp Set with Midnight, Samba, It’s a Girl, Over Coffee, and Deck the Halls Inks. I added Foam Tape behind the top panel and adhered the apples and sentiment behind it before adhereing to the card base.
- Card Base = 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″
- Top Panel = 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″; 2-1/4 x 5-1/2″ Catherine Pooler Bushel and a Peck 6 x 6 Patterned Paper; 3/4 x 5-1/2″ Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock
- Inside Strip = 1 x 5-1/2″ Catherine Pooler Bushel and a Peck 6 x 6 Patterned Paper
