My Craft Spot Challenge #35-Christmas Through The Window

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and Thanksgiving holiday! Did you enjoy time with family and friends? The hubby and I were unable to make it home to Alabama for the holidays so we had a little celebration here. It was so much fun! I cooked a mini Thanksgiving dinner and was quite surprised that it turned out half decent. Nothing like Mom's cooking, but it was festive. LOL.

Anyways, it's Monday and that means we have another fun challenge for you at My Craft Spot! This weeks challenge is called 'Christmas Through the Window.' We are creating window cards and they must be themed in Christmas. Window cards are so easy to create and a change up from the norm. If you would like to join us for the challenge or see inspiration from my fellow DT sisters, go HERE to check that out.

For my project, I have created a window card using my Cricut Gypsy. I love the Gypsy for window cards. It really makes them fast and easy to design/cut. For the base of my card, I used a shape I found on the 'Blackletter' cartridge. It already had a diagonal window cut into it, so it made it easy on me.

"Merry Christmas"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: Core'dinations, The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: BasicGrey
Stamps, Twine: My Craft Spot
Pearls: Michaels
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Cartridges Used: Blackletter, Create A Critter, Joys of the Season
Adhesive: Helmar
 This stamped sentiment is from the 'Jingle All the Way' stamp set at My Craft Spot. The shape that I stamped it on is from the 'Joys of the Season' Cricut cartridge.
 Isn't this little reindeer cut from 'Create A Critter' so adorable?! I used some twine bows to jazz it up a tad. For the nose, I used a pearl embellishment.
 Not sure if you can tell, but I used pop dots to pop up the reindeer shape on my card front. Also for the top brown layer of the cut, I did not apply adhesive to the backs of the ears and the tail. This allowed me to curl them up a tad for that little extra dimension.
 Since it is a window card and I wanted my coordinating patterned paper to shine on the inside, I used the back of the card for my other sentiment and where I will write my holiday wishes to the recipient. The stamped sentiment is from the 'Merry Christmas' stamp set at My Craft Spot.
I hope you have enjoyed this project! It was super easy to do and I had it together in about an hour. If you would like to play along with us AND have a chance at this weeks PRIZE, visit My Craft Spot by clicking HERE. We'd love to see what you can come up with!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
