- First, I cut out this ornament on my Cricut in two colors, then cut them apart to get the dual colored look.
- Cut a patterned paper mat (I used Cosmo Cricket's "Jolly by Golly" Silly Chilly paper) that is 1/2" squared smaller than your card base. EX: If your card base is 5"x 7", the cut your mat to 4.5"x 6.5".
- Using my Purple Cows #1050 Ultimate trimmer with the short wave blade, I cut my mat, then used my "Peace" stamp and stamped on the spot I wanted the "window" to be. Then I cut the window with a craft knife. With the mat in it's proper place (not adhered), I stamped again in the window so that it was on the actual card base. After that step, I stickled the stamped image, and set aside to dry.
- I added the die cut Christmas bulb, then used a bit of craft wire and added a few seed beads for texture.
- Then I mounted double sided foam tape to the back of the mat, and leave the backing on, and turned over to add Rock Candy Stickles to the very edge of the window. (Apply it thickly!)
- While the Stickles was drying, I started dinner and folded the laundry.
- Once everything was dry, I peeled the foam tape backing off, applied to the card base, and woohoo! A sweet and special card for someone I love! (I did do eight of them assembly line style, and without drying time it took about thirty minutes...)
