Faux Window Card & Tutorial

Yesterday was my husband's birthday (which is why this post is a day late, sorry!) I made him a card that we did for a make and take at my "So You Think You Can Stamp" night on Thursday. (More on that fun Customer Appreciation Night later.) I used mini labels and contact paper to create this faux window with the classic Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

Here's how to make the faux window:
  1. Cut mini labels down to fit your image. Stamp image on label sheet. Color as desired.
  2. Sponge white space with color. I used Bordering Blue for the sky and Mellow Moss for the grass.
  3. Cut a piece of clear contact paper to be slightly larger than the stamped label sheet. Peel off the backing and place the contact paper over your image...sticky side down on the image. Don't press the contact paper too hard over the image.
  4. Peel back the backing of the label sheet, leaving the labels in their position on the contact paper.
  5. Place the contact paper with labels over a coordinating piece of cardstock. Carefully peel back the contact paper, transferring the labels to the cardstock.
  6. Finish embellishing your card as desired.
Supplies: Lovely As a Tree, Fundamental Phrases, Creamy Caramel marker & cardstock, Chocolate Chip ink & cardstock, Mellow Moss ink & marker, Bordering Blue ink, Stamping Sponges, Mini Labels, Contact Paper

Thanks for the great tutorial - I
tried it and it was easier than I thought it would be. I got the mini-mini labels though. Still looks nice. Thanks again.
