Christmas in July - and anytime...
I make Christmas cards all year so I am never pressured late in the year to get them done. I share a new one each month with the class that meets in my home and this is one we will be making soon. I made a similar tri-shutter card with a Clear Views transparency recently and loved it, but was troubled that the front is clearly the outside of the home with brick and a window, but when we looked through the window, we saw a scene from the outside too. I checked all the transparencies at The Mark-It Place website and none were a scene from the inside of a home. So I contacted Jill at The Mark-It Place and she was kind enough to create some new images I could use for this card and others. The Mark-It Place is closed, but she still sells her beautiful transparency pictures on line here. This is what this tri-shutter card looks like open:
The dies are from Memory Box and IO, the punches from Martha Stewart, embossing folder by Sizzix, and the sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
I am entering this card in the Christmas challenges at Simply Create Too and Completely Christmas.
