Hi, Gaylynn here. For Technique Time, I am sharing one way to make a window card with added Autumn stamping. This also shows how I added Fall coloring using Copic markers.
This is a great window card for thinking of you, Thanksgiving, just because or Autumn occasions. It would also be perfect with a coffee or tea gift.
Here are helpful tips for creating this Autumn window card. To begin, stamp the mug directly onto the card base. Then, stamp the mug again and the sentiment onto another cardstock piece. Use Copic friendly ink. Next, add Copic color layers to the full mug and also to the pumpkins on the second mug. Also, add light distress oxide ink shading around the mug. Then, cut out the second set of pumpkins to use as a card accent. (You can stop here for a finished flat card.)
To make the window, open the card base and die-cut a shape onto the card front panel. Be sure that the shape will fit your stamping. I used an oval die but it could be hand-cut or punched out. Then, add temporary tape, like washi, to hold the cut in place. Next, close the card base to adhere to the oval to the inside. Now, the card front becomes a window and the stamping becomes the inside panel. To finish, adhere the sentiment and the extra pumpkins using foam tape.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
