STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut card base: used patterned paper, cut from Art Philosophy (AP), page 24, card, shift, 5.5". I used my G to hide the firefly; don't cut yet... place window hole in card front: Used G; used Banner 3 from AP, pg 39; flipped it upside down, unlocked proportions, changed size to 2.01 wide and 3.22 height. Placed banner on card front and grouped banner and card together. Then cut the number of cards I wanted.
Cut window frames: Cut 2 frames for each card using Christmas, cut at 3.5". Cut window from a transparency, used my G to hide all window panes, cut at 3.5". Cut window swag from Christmas at 1.06". I spritzed the window transparency with Goosebumps to make it look like there was frost on the window :) Glued one window frame to the front of the transparency, then glued the transparency and frame over the hole in the card front. Opened the card and glued the second frame over the window hole.
Printed and cut all layers of Santa; used Imagine Santa's Village, pg 4, 4". Used pop dots to adhere layers (I ended up not using the third layer of Santa's boots, it got too thick for being that close to the fold of the card).
Printed and cut mats: The mats behind Santa are cut from AP, Pg 47, Shape 8, 5.2" and 4", filled with patterns from Imagine Vintage Demask. Sentiment stamped on cuts from AP, pg 26, Shape 1 cut at 1.60" and 1.4", filled with Vintage Demask. Inked all edges with dark gray ink. Note, I didn't use double sided patterened paper for the card base so I ran it through the Imagine and printed (no cutting) a pattern from Vintage Demask on the inside of the card. Adheared all mats together and attached then to the inside of the card. Glued Santa inside card so you can see him thru the window when the card is closed.
Punched holly branches with an MS paper punch, decorated the card front with holly branches, flowers, swag. Added holly berries with red Stickles. Added lace inside for window curtain.
