It's my turn to share projects over Altenew Card Blog.
I am delighted to share TWO textured window card designs using one embossing folder today. I am using Window Slats 3D Embossing Folder as my example. The textures on this embossing folder offer so much potential for window scene cards. No matter what style or themes you prefer, you can totally make it your own. All products (in bold) are linked at the end of this post.
Creating the Window with Embossing Folder
First of all, let's start with the framework. The following are the 3 key steps to create a textured window frame. As you can see both cards are different in themes, however, the steps to create a frame are the same.
- Trim the frame: Die cut the white card stock with a shape die, such as Mix and Match Frames Die.
- Create a shape for the focal point: I used two types of shape die for the "window" (Nesting Frames Die and Fine Frames Squares Die).
- Add textures: dry emboss the frame with Window Slats 3D Embossing Folder.
For the daffodil (Craft-a Flower-Daffodil Layering Die) card, I used Gel Printing Soft Wash Paper Pad to create the various shades of petals and leaves. This was really easy to do once you figure out the shades and depth.
The "peeking out" leaves and daffodil look so much more fun and interesting. You can play with the positioning to see what makes you happy.
For the sentiment, I die cut "HI" with Mighty Alphabet Die out of Glitter Card Stock -Gilded.
The Pocketful of Sunshine Enamel Dots make the perfect embellishments. If you own the Cat Life Stamp Set, you already know how much fun it is to use it. Here's another window design to spark your creativity.
I stamped the three cats based on the instructions and it didn't take long at all. The cats' colors (from left to right) are Hazelnut, Autumn Blaze, and Evening Grey.
The window slats were lightly inked with Vanilla Cream. The Detailed Blending Brushes are really handy for inking up the edges. For the "night sky", I applied a piece of Watercolor Nebula Wide Washi Tape and added droplets of glitter.
After stamping the sentiment "just fur you", I stamped and lightly colored the three mice.I adhered the cats and window frame with Washi Tape. I then added Instant Dimension Foam Tape all over the backside and popped it up.

Very versatile embossing folder! I love both of these pretty cards!
Both cards are so lovely and fun. This is one of my favorite embossing folders so love the way you used it. Think the daffodil is calling to me...my favorite flower.
Love the flower popping through the embossed bg and those 3 kitties are adorable!!!!
One gorgeous, one cute as it can be - reminds me, I haven't had lunch!!
Really like the way you used the Mix and Match frame piece with the Window Slat embossing folder. Such a great idea to add texture. Both are great cards, but since I am a cat lover, I am quite taken by the second card with the 3 cute cats! Adorable!
Looks like an amazing ef and I love how you showcased it for different styles, Virginia!! Love the flower and the sweet kitties!!
