Window Card

Hi Everyone,

Well I must say – this one took a while! lol In fact it’s been on my desk in various stages of make for about 2 weeks!

I knew I wanted to make a window card to showcase this gorgeous Bear paper that I’ve also had sitting around for a year or so! I made one card with it back when I bought it and being the horder I am, just didn’t want to part with it until now lol.

Well then along came Card Crafters Circle this week with their challenge to make a card along the theme of BEARS. That really spurred me on to finish it off I can tell you!


I have a friend who is sick and in need of some Hugs so I decided to send her 
some Bear Hugs – the best kind when your sick you know!

Each letter of BEAR is stuck to a little window that opens up to reveal a Bear beneath. Cute hey!

The inside is also decorated, and I’ve cut a Paw Print from the paper to leave an area to write in.


I made the background under the paw using distress inks, water and a wee rose stamp that matched the paper on the front of the card.


I’m also entering this card into the following two challenges:-
