I wanted to give a tutorial on how to create this card that I made using the Spellbinders #S4-283 2010 Heirloom Ornament that I posted a few days ago. Some of you were was asking how to just make a window with the die template so this answer those questions as well.
1) Find the different types of pattern paper you want to use and cut them into various widths.
2) Glue them down on a scrap piece of cardstock.
3) Line up ornament die template to where you want it cut. Tape it down so it doesn’t slip.
4) Flip die template over so cut side is up and cut/emboss image.
5) Using the same size die template, center it on the inside of your card on the left; CUT SIDE DOWN….tape.
This way it won’t cut the back side, just a window in the front.
7) To create a gold frame, line up the die template that you used with your pattern paper and the next size up and tape it to gold fold. Cut/emboss with cut side up and gold foil facing down.
8) After cutting frame, adhere it to red paper and trim with scissors close to the edge to add an extra frame. Adhere to front of card where opening is.
9) Place the small ornament that was created with the pattern paper inside the opening on the inner flap so that you can line up where it’s supposed to go on the other side. Leaving it there, add foam squares. With adhesive ready, close the card and press firmly so that it adheres into place.
10) Stamp sentiment, line it up with Spellbinders Double Ended Tag and cut/emboss. Use pop dots to adhere.
I hope this has been helpful! I wanted to share a few photos from the other side of my ornament. I have three children so I created it to have three sides and my son was the lucky one who made it for the reveal!
