I was inspired by this Window card on Barb Mullins' website. I used the Dreams du Jour and Fresh Cuts stamp sets. I embellished the front of this card with this tile. To achieve this tile I stamped the image and coloured it in. Then I inked the front with Versa Mark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I heated it with the heat tool. While the card was still wet after the heat tool, I dipped it into the clear embossing powder, heated it with the heat gun. I repeated this step 3 times. This gives a tile like look. Here are the instructions for the Window Card. Barb has a video on it on her web site.
1.Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 4 1/4" and 5 1/2".
2.Score both pieces of card on both sides 4 1/2" and 5".
3.To make the window, line the edge of your 1 3/8" square punch with the 4 1/2" score line. Push the punch as far as it will go and punch out. Move punch across to the 4 1/2" score line on othe side and repeat. Do this to the opposite side of the card as well. This is the front of the card and you can stamp images on this. On the other piece of card stock you can stamp your images .
4. Adhere a piece of acetate to the inside of the window. Fold your score lines so they form a box shape. Put tape on the two outer edges of one piece of card and join the two pieces of card together. Embellish the front.
The other card I used the Illuminations stamp set.
