Christmas Window

Afternoon everyone, yet another miserable day here, so having yet another crafting day, lol (any excuse).  I found the little image free on Pinterest and just thought of a window card.

I started by making a 91/2" x 51/2" tent fold card, then layered some pale blue merry Christmas paper from Hearts designs Bettie & Berties Christmas digi kit (doesn't really show in pic), and I,ve used tumbled glass distress ink around the edges.

I've taken my image into craft artist, sized it to approx. 5" square, then printed, cut and added some glamour dust to the snow.  I then cut a piece of acetate the same size and used beads of silicone glue to attatch it to the front of the image, giving it a little bit of depth.
I then cut a 5" square frame in white card (using Spellbinders large square nestabilities, but any square nesting dies would do the same job) and also 2 really thin pieces of card for the middle of the window (can't think what it's called, lol) and stuck these onto the acetate, again with silicone glue.

I then used this die to add to the top and bottom of the window, I don't have the link for the one I bought but you can get the same from Aliexpress.  I cut and embossed the ivy in the same white card and added glamour dust around the edges.

The sentiment I've used, at the top of the card is Merry Little Christmas die from Sue Wilson.

I have also used the Woodland Collection - Pine Cone & Greenery and Berry Bough from the Festive Collection by Sue Wilson and I've added berries and some little cones I picked up in Hobbycraft (modelling section).

And inside I've used the same die and added a few pearls.

Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.
