Half Window Card
Today, I've got a tutorial to share with on on how to make a beautiful Half Window Card using a technique with your Angel Wings.
Cheery Lynn Designs Dies:
Cut a piece of cardstock 6" x 12". Score at 3" and 6". Fold as shown.
Cut patterned paper to add to the card base.
(2) 2 7/8" x 5 3/4"
(2) 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" : Set one of these to the side.
Ink the edges of the paper. Use Scor-tape to adhere the panels to the base, but on the first panel, do not put the tape along the edge that will have the cut.
Take the angel wing die (this is an outline die, that matches a fancy doily die, but has one edge that is not a cutting edge). Tape the angel wing along the scored/folded line. **If I want to hold something temporarily in place with tape, onto pretty patterned paper, I stick the tape to my skin a couple of times, before adhering to the paper, to make it less sticky and to decrease the chance of messing up my patterned paper.
This is what your card will look like after you run it through your die cutting machine.
When I added my doily on top of this, I wanted to have a consistent cream background underneath, so I cut a full circle with the angel wing (make the first cut, line the up so that it completes the circle, tape in place and cut). Then I matched this up with the half circle, glued in place, then added the doily on top. This will be the inside portion of the card.
Take the second piece of designer paper 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" and lay it on top of the front, to see where the doily fits. Tape your angel wing to the patterned paper, and using the two step method, cut a full circle from this piece of paper. Then line it up on the front and attach.
Add your second doily to the front. Embellish as you please.
I love how this card looks like it's flipping around when you open it and hope that you will give it a try.
