Joy To The World Christmas Window Card Made On The Explore


Hi, Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady. Thank you Pam for allowing me to share today on your blog. Hope you are feeling a little better today!

Isn't this a beautiful little card. I have a light on the side of it so you can see that it is a window card, complete with a window. I love window cards and was thrilled when I figure out how to do them on my Explore... even more thrilled that it was easier than on the CCR or Gypsy! Originally I was making this card for a card party and cut out 12! Well after getting them all cut out I decided that I wanted to keep them for myself as I make my own cards and I love religious cards so this one is perfect.



Now wasn't that a lot easier than you thought? I used a lot of glitter pager from My Minds Eye. And I want to remind you that this particular card that I am showing has every blunder cut that happened. I had to get some new mats out then all went well.


This is a close up of the front and as you can see it does have a window in the card.


Close up of the inside. I used a stamp and ink from close to my heat. It is beautiful.


Here is another close up of the card I wish the picture looked as good as the card, as it is stunning and just shimmers as you hold it in the light.


Thank you for joining me today. I enjoyed sharing my card with you and hope you liked it too. Thanks for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement. Your comments always inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week.

Friendship Card Made WithThe Expression

 
Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady, thank you Pam for inviting me here today.
 
Now isn't this a fun card? I saw Melody Lane's video on her card that was a pop-up with the car on the inside. Well I don't have that cart yet so I used this little car. I followed Melody's instructions for doing a photo and look here we are, isn't it cute?

I sent this little card to my Cousin Roxanne and hubby Rob telling them we were looking forward to our little trip together. They loved the card to say the least.



Now wasn't that easy and you got to see my Explorer sing! Love it. I used all kinds of scraps and ended up with a great little card to mail out.


Thank you for joining me today, I so enjoy spending a little time with you. And thank you for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me.
