Wintry Window Card

We had our first major snowfall this weekend as well as our first snow day, so I had some time to do some crafting.  The weather inspired me to pull out the Ellen Hutson dies I recently ordered.  

This card uses the Alpine Window and Alpine Snowfall dies.

I started by die cutting the house layer from my card base.  This is a window layer in that it cuts a window into a piece.  The tree layers is also a window layer, but for this layer I first die cut a circle that was just slightly larger than the diameter of the tree layer, and then placed the tree layer die within it and die cut.  This created a very thin frame around the top of the opening which allowed me to adhered that layer to the back of the opening created by the house layer.

The next two layers are on the inside of my card.  I cut a panel of dark blue cardstock and created the snowy sky using the Alpine Snowfall die.  Over that, I added the mountain layer from the Alpine Window die set - this die cuts the actual mountain piece out.

When you close the card you get the full scene.

To finish things off, I added a mat of patterned paper and then popped up the top layer of white cardstock.

I thought long and hard about making this a Christmas card, but decided to go with a winter themed card.  I used two sentiments from my Scandinavian Prints Christmas set, one on the outside and one on the inside.

Thanks for visiting!
